Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

I recently picked up a suburban and it is missing the second row brackets for the middle seatbelts. Does anyone know if there are any aftermarket manufactures of these brackets?

Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

Photo is upside down, but you can see all three belts are attached on the side barckets. So the passenger side male, female and middle male are all on the same bracket and bolt. Same with the other side.

There are no repros but I have purchased some on this site and ebay fairly cheap.

Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

If it originally had four brackets (Like Redroad said - not reproduced) there should be holes in the floor under the carpet. That's where my seat belts were bolted. Through the floor.

Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

Those brackets are just like the OE used. My '73 Camaro has identical ones.

I'd have to look under my Suburban but I think there is a crossmember with the nuts attached already for the second seat.

The third seat, IIRC added another crossmember.

Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

VectorIT - I recently purchased a '72 Suburban. I'm wanting to put in a 3rd row seat. 1st and 2nd row seats are from early 2000's Tahoe. While getting my brain wrapped around what my options might be, I noticed the floor behind the second row is wood. I assumed it was replaced after the original floor rusted out. I see in one of your photos wood as well. Now I'm second guessing my assumption. Is the wood something original from the factory!?

Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

The floors were originally wood. Plywood in the Suburban. I presume oak strips, in a panel.

If ordered with the third seat an extra metal reinforcement was placed under the floor between the wheel wells.

Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

BigDav is on the mark...

Plywood was the factory floor - I didn't know this either when I first picked my Burb up in Cali.

Re: 67-72 Suburban OE seats

As far as i can tell my SPID says AS3 REAR SEAT, but it has the long brackets, is this just a typo?
