I think it might be oval-era because in the directions it says to pull the backrest off the pivot pin...implying perhaps that it has no nuts to remove...

Quite a few NOS sets have been circulating in the local swapmeets in the past few years. There must have been a recent discovery of them. There are left and right versions of the recliners, but either side can be easily modified to fit either seat. Looking at my sets, they were intended for use on 1956-64 style seat frames.

Yes I do, but not for cash. What accessories do you have for trade? Check my "wanted ads", got anything I need?

There was a company selling them on eBay for $24 each last year. They had a lot of them.
