Need outer passenger seat track '63 Riv

Recommended Posts

I have my passenger side seat out and discovered that one of the mounting brackets on the outer seat track (the track with the adjuster handle on it) is broken. Is anyone parting out a 1st Gen. Riv that could sell me just that one track?

 

Thanks!

Hi Jim,

  If your bracket is broken where the bracket meets the seat rail I would recommend that you have your bracket repaired/welded. The brackets have a weak spot (I`m assuming yours is broken where they all break) and it has been my experience that 8 out of 10 removed from parts cars are broken or ready to break in the same spot.

Thanks, Tom.

 

You are correct, that is exactly where it is broken. A small tab of steel, bent to form a spot to rivet to the track, has cracked at the bend. I will get it welded.
