TK - No, THEY are wrong! I think you should do NEW seats...those old ones are horrible...

 

I think you should give ME your old seat frames AND MOUNTING HARDWARE so I can properly 'dispose' of them for you.... Hah!

 

If anyone else has any original seat frames and/or mounting hardware, please advise. I need three - doing a complete restoration of a 64 Deluxe. Will pay reasonable amount and shipping.

 

Also need:

gull wing doors and hardware from back hatch cover

clear plexiglass from dash front

red (port) running light lense
