1970 Bucket seat spacers
« on: April 07, 2021, 04:52:38 AM »
The bucket seat tracks on my 1970 Challenger had the pictured spacers installed between the track and the carpet.  They are made of a heavy fiber or cardboard like material and about 1/4" thick.  I have not been able to find any reference to these anywhere.  Are they original items for a 1970 car?  Is there any source for replacements?

Thanks,

John Brough

Not a factory E Body part. Maybe somebody thought they would lessen road vibration or something  :dunno:

Someone was short, and setting on a telephone book was embarrassing?  :alan2cents:

I have a 6 way seat from my first Cuda in my Barracuda, the inside side needs spacers to be level...

Thanks!  Whoever made these did a pretty good job cutting them out.  Look like they were stamped rather than being cut with a knife or saw.  Anyway, in the trash they go.  Glad I don't have to make new ones.
