I have a 1957 Belvedere 4dr Sedan. Attached are the front seat rails. The "feet" are pretty rusted to the floor. Does anyone make a reproduction? Are these interchangeable with other MOPAR interiors? Other B bodies?

Thanks BigM. I have to cut the bolts to get them up. I'll see how they look when I get them out.

I got the rail springs from Neil Jenks at Dynamic Restoration for my 59 Plymouth 4dr. sdn. They were the same as A 69 Barracuda. Identical.

Remember the days when you had to agree on sliding the seat back and forth?

The front seat rails on my 57 Belvedere were rusted to the floor so I had to cut them out. I found some replacements but they were out of my current budget. I recently found a nearly identical pair that were marked "1964 Plymouth Valiant" The seller knew very little about them. For $25 they were a good gamble.

They are nearly identical to my 57 Plymouth rails. The floor bolt holes are identical. The back "legs" are maybe a inch shorter than the 57 but the front legs are the same height.

If you are looking for seat rails for your 57 mopar with a front bench seat check out possible replacements from early 60s Valiants. I can't guarantee these were marked correctly but if they were its another source of parts.

I don't have a 64 or earlier Valiant to measure but I wonder if the front bench seats are the same size at a 57.
