The bolts that hold the seat frames to floor are actually accessible from the interior of the car. Pics attached of 73 convertible where the bolts attach to a "riser" box on the floor. That however may have changed as you mentioned your car has frame rails. Could it have had some mods to the floor and seat frame mounts?

Trick sixty five, since you have a convertible take notice of the spacers between the seat and the slide adjusters. They are unique to convertibles. And they go on the inboard side. When you remove the rails you will see what I'm referring to.

Well since the seatbelt dash light hasn't worked for years, i guess i can let that sit unplugged. Anyone know about the spacer situation, it there a fix or replacement part.

Depending on options on the car some also had a convenience pkg that released the front seats when the door is opened. If I remember correctly, it is a second plug in addition to the one for seatbelt sensors. Most do not work or at best are temperamental (in my experience) now so once again leaving it unplugged is not a loss.

If there is only one plug I would think it is, as imusa76 pointed out, a seatbelt sensor.

Not sure about a source for repro spacer for convertible seats. Sorry.

Hi Judge,

I have those spacers, there are 8 of them. I bought them many years ago...can't remember where maybe The Paddock Inc. (no longer in business)

Can you post a picture on how they go on? Between the seat and the rail or between the rail and the carpet? Thanks!
