A touring car sold on here a while back that had a neat front seat back that hinged back, thus making the car into a bed. I would like to do this to my touring car. Im looking for the latches and the flip down bar that stops the seat from tilting too far back. I suppose I could forge my own bar, but the latches would be nice to find. Cal Daniel 831-278-2742

Hey Dan, You saw that cool seat as well. I was really tempted to buy the car cause I liked that seat so much. Good luck with your project.

Seems like that would be the perfect camper, long distance accessory to have especially if it was at all comfy.

The real "Surf City" guy.. Sorry I couldn't help it local joke.

Daniel K, You should check with antique house restoration supply companies. Some of them also carry things like hinges and latches for ice boxes, which may be strong enough to work for such a seat.
There was a pace in Oakland Califunny that friends of mine used to go to a lot. Also one in Portland Oregon that I did visit a couple times years ago, they were really good. I heard of one around Oklahoma City (don't know WHICH Oklahoma City). I don't know if any of these are still around.
There is also a place in Eureka Califunny that I went to several times (family in that area). But I was never that favorably impressed with them or their selection.
Good luck!
Drive carefully, and enjoy the holidays! W2
