1973 Coupe Rear Seat Foam
#1
All,

Sometime ago, I had some exhaust system work near where the back seat area is. Unfortunately, the welder set fire to jute material behind the rear seat and you can see for the photo what happened. When I disassembled the seat cover, I noticed these wires weaved into the burlap.

Lord knows where anyone is going to get this stuff from. Anyway, It looks like the foam for the rear seats, coupe , hardtop is not reproduced. Please let me know if I am wrong. Looks like I may have to procure one or get some foam like a few of the forum members did to rebuild theirs.

All,

I checked Mustangs Unlimited limited latest catalog and website. They only have the burlap for the front seats. National Parts Depot the burlap front seat kit. They also have the padding kit, seat frame edge, Listing Rod set, rear seat, wait a minute, and they have the PAD set, rear seats. I do not see any reproduction of the seat foam!

judge, spot on baby!

Thanks,

All,

I found this You Tube video on how to rebuild a 4 door back seat. Really interesting.

All,

Found this from the 1970 Charger Registry that talks about the wires in the burlap.

All,

Upon looking into the rear seat for the coupes or hardtops, the wires in the back seat are to help keep the burlap for pushing into the springs, thus weakening the foam support. The green looking stuff is paper wrapped upholstery wire. The wires that connect to it , per the 1970 Charger Registry is 0.030. Looks like it is just a time consuming project to get it replaced.

This guy is only a couple of blocks from my house. He has had this seat posted for a while, could prob get it for a lot less. Not sure what shipping to NC would be though. Let me know if you want me to check it out for you.

Call Don at Ohio Mustang, he may have a usable original in his massive collection.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
