Got started on swapping out the driver's side, bottom part of the seat today.  As the photos attest, it was w-a-y outta whack and I figured replacing with a good donor was a better answer.  PO had swapped driver/passenger seats and while that's a temporary solution, it just ain't right.  '71 the seat release was in the middle so both front were equivalent, but '73 and I think '72 had the seat release lever outboard, and if you swap left and right seats, they're far inboard.

For what it’s worth, my ‘72 has the seat release levers on the outside back of the seat....so drivers and passenger are specific...and not interchangeable

I was thinking it was ‘72 and ‘73 — thanks

I think the actual frames are the same and the release levers can be swapped to match the side the sat is on. I'd need to look at my spare frames to know for sure.
