64 Sedan de Ville front seat removal

 This would be helpful to 64 four door sedan owners.  When removing the front seat it is a lot easier to remove and install it, if the rear grab rail strap and surround that goes up the sides and across the top of the back of the seat is removed first. This gives you a little bit of extra wiggle room.   Ron Perry     Of course I found that out the hard way!

The seat on my 62 is heavy. It takes 2 to remove it safely. I have used a ramp to slide it in and out by myself. The easy way I do it now is by removing the back parts first then remove the bottom.

I don't think it matters.  Maybe the passenger side since you will clear the steering wheel quicker. When I remove the seat out of a parts car it is one of the last items to go as I use it to sit there and remove the dash, steering column, etc!  That is, it is my work sofa! LOL

Is it best to pull the seat out from the driver or passenger side, or does it matter.  May need a plastic piece from you I think one is already cracked (not by me :) ) among other things.....list being prepared.

Run seat to upper most position to get better access to seat rail floor mount bolts. Remove rear floor mount bolts first as the seat will want to tilt backwards. Remove front bolts, and seat will tilt backwards. Disconnect wiring connectors at front lower left side. Be careful  with the seat rail upper outer and lower inner plastic cover trim as these are very brittle and easily break. I have a limited supply of all of them which you can see by clicking here.

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
