Help the vertically challenged see over the wheel? Or someone lean back? That’s my guess if it isn’t factory.

I bought bushings from the help section in the auto parts store. Much cheaper than going through the notoriously overpriced year one.

As far as I know they came stock on the seat studs. The one pictured doesn't look stock. Washers no. They are easily left off in a restoration, but to me actually make a good deal of difference in the way the seat sits.

Well my 68 had Vega buckets in it so I've never seen those before.. Never seen them on E bodies & prior to my 68 hadn't owned a B body since the 70's.. And in the 70's I was paying more attention to girls than seat spacers...
That all said got dimensions? I'll have to make some for my Coronet...

I will look, they came on a 68 Roadrunner with the upgraded cloth and vinyl buckets. Still have all seats. It is in storage, might get there by mid August.

I'm guessing 1.5" in diameter & .75 thick? I've got 4' of 1.5" round 6061 at the shop with no home...
I'm not sure, but just a guess is 1 1/2" diameter and about 5/8 thick. The center hole just slightly bigger than the seat studs. The little clips slide over the threads to keep them in place and they are inset for that clip. I put replacements on the 67 Coronet recently but didn't measure anything.
