1964-1968 How does top boot attach to rear seat?

I'm trying to identify some convertible top information, and am finding conflicting information on the internet. For 1964-1968 Impala convertibles, if you have one let me know how does your top boot attach to the back of the rear seat - with a slide-in bar, or velcro?

Welcome to the Team Melanie!

First thing to point out is 1958-'64 is one set of car bodies while the 1965-'70 series is a different set of cars that do not share sheet metal parts (or in your case convertible top parts).

So I have to ask what year car do you have?

I am trying to identify books that went with the convertible tops. I need to identify 1964-1968 books, and I have books for each year. I have both velcro and slider books, and I'm trying to identify which ones apply to the Impala.

Thanks dadstoy and also Txbobcat - need to know that too. I think maybe all 1965-1968 Impalas are velcro, but I'm not sure, so keep the answers coming.

My 1967 has the velcro and two snaps. But my problem is I can find nothing on the seat or trunk to attach the velcro to. Where does it attach??

There is a strip of Velcro between the seat and the trim on the body.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

My 66 has the 2 snaps and the Velcro--how do you replace the Velcro attached to the seat? it has seen better days, as the piece on the boot is fine.

Mine was bad also. At WalMart where they sell cloth material, they also sell velcro .

Thanks Dadstoy, I'm not sure how to remove the piece that is attached to the seat--it looks like plastic blind rivets hold it on?

In accordance with the '61 shop manual, the '63 I owned in the '60's, and my current '63, the boot 'slides' into the 'slide-in retainer' on the top of the 'back seat'.

I do not know about the years later, or earlier.
