    Are you referring to the way you access the back seat? Older models have a tilt bucket, while newer models(86 and up I believe) have a passenger seat that both slides and folds forward to allow passengers in.

    If so, I'd die to have the seats out of an 86 and up. The buckets in my 84 don't recline and getting a kids car seat out between the door pillar and the tilting passenger bucket plays havoc with my back....... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Since I have owned a 71, 72, 75, 77, 79, and 83 I prefer the side release style. Only my 72 was the old style seat release but my 79 and 83 are the side release. I like the side release but wish it would fold in half forward also as well as flip. Thats what aftermarkets for right.
