Looking for decent rear seat frames for my 1964 Dodge Polara convertible as my original frames [especially the bottom seat] are too rotted out to save.

Not exactly sure what/if other year B Bodies might have the same rear seat, but my research thus far indicates that the seat frames I need were unique to the 64 Polara. If you can prove that to be wrong via photos and measurements I'd appreciate it since it would give me additional options/sources for these parts.

The black, bottom seat photo below is OEM from a friends 64 Polara 500 convertible. It's upside down, so the front of the seat is on the left side. Notice how narrow and tall the 'U' is where the seat sits over the driveshaft tunnel? This is the style seat frame I need....

And the 2nd photo is of the rear seat back showing the placement of the vertical supports. My original back piece is usable but if you have a decent pair and want to sell them that way lets talk.

I'm going to Carlisle in July and if you are too we can both save the hassle of shipping.

Thanks!

I think the Dodge seat frame is different than a Plymouth. The Plymouth rear seat frame sits on top of rear floor ledge, so the front edge of seat and tunnel cut out are shallower than Dodge. The bottom of the Dodge seat sits ahead of this ledge and comes down to the rear floor. Thus, the front edge and tunnel cut out are taller. This is a result of 3" longer wheelbase of the Dodge, which shows up in rear floor pan. I would suspect that 1963 Dodge convertible rear seats would interchange, because that car is also 119" wheelbase. I am not sure about 1965 Coronet, but they could be like a Plymouth seat, because wheelbase was reduced to 117" .
