Thread: SWB Seat Riser Option Discovered

    SWB Seat Riser Option Discovered

    While stripping the interior of my 66 911 No. 304574 I discovered what appears to be rare seat riser option. Since I couldn't find photos in search, thought I'd post for archives. Center rails sit on H-adapter, while outside rails sit on modified bases. CoA for this 911 has option for "expander," but not sure if that refers to the sear riser. In any case, this will come in handy as I shrink into my golden years....

    Expander is generally known to be a bungee cord type of thing to secure things in the area of the rear seat.
