Default interior/backseat 67 picture

Does anyone have a picture of what the back of a 67 seat is suppose to look like from the trunk. I know something is suppose to go between the trunk and seat? Are the bars on the backseat exposed or does something cover them?

Nothing from the trunk side covers the supports/bars.

Originally on a coupe (guess that is what you have) there was a line jute pad attached to the rear of the seat but they normally did not hold up over the years and I'm not aware of a good reproduction

Here is an original out of the car

Have seen a matted black felt liner installed in other years and it may also differ between plants (different suppliers)

Are you thinking of the coupe trunk divider board?
The cardboard piece between the back seat and trunk?
Thanks, Doc

Im not sure. I just don't think it looks right how it is now. I thought something was missing. When I got my car 21 years ago, I think there was a pad like jeff posted. It was in Baaadd shape. I wanted to try and duplicate something accross the back.

If you're looking for something to cut down on road sound entering the passenger compartment from the trunk, I have heard that you can take a piece of cardboard cut it to fit behind the backseat and tape it into place with metal duct tape. then buy duct insulator from Home Depot or Lowes and cover the entire piece of cardboard with that. I hear Frost King is a good product for this use.

Thats alright. Im gonna have to make something, but I have way to much money involved into this project for that. Im probably gonna have to cut something out to go there and have it upholstered. Thanks anyway.

NPD and MU have the seat to trunk divider in the rigid cardboard or steel. NPD page 41, MU
page 12.

Is there a way you can pack some insulation (foam cut to size, or even pink stuff you get for houses if necessary) behind the seat trunk divider? Doesn't necessarily have to be much to make a difference in sound deadening?
Just an idea. If no good, then you never heard from me....

I believe NPD and/or MU sell pre cut insulator for the divider along with other
interior stuff.

Here is how my 68 trunk divider looked when I bought it. As nasty as the divider was, I have to believe it was original...

Dave - what factory and time period? We always have to ask as it may make a difference

Jeff,
Built in Dearborn on 01 April 1968. If I recall correctly, when I removed the divider it was actually more of a fuzzy cloth-like substance and not rigid (like cardboard). It also left fuzzy residue wherever it contacted the steel structure between trunk and rear seat area.

Edit: Here is the stuff I pulled out, (with chunks of tar-paper underlayment laying on top)

Thanks for the source (what car you found it on)

Yours looks to have a basic jute body or the pad (yes no real structure - flimsy like a rag and with a black coating. Have seen (different years - plant) either an almost plastic (bag thickness) surface attached/bonded to one side or a black dense felt with a pressed on pattern similar to the later firewall covers
