So I've been searching through all the photos I can find regarding the high back seats in my 23 Commander.
I have known all along that they looked different than any I had seen in any other 23 and it didn't dawn on me until this weekend that my seats are missing the headrest. Here lies my question; Is there any record of whether these seats ever came with the headrests being detachable? There is proof positive evidence that the headrests used to be there indicated by the color of the vinyl on the seat back being less faded in the area where the headrest should be. The strange part is that the seat back supports go all the way to the top of the headrest in all of the pictures I have seen but mine end at the top of the seat back and it does not look as though they have been hacked out, they look as though they were made that way at the factory. Strange! Again!

I have seen both styles, both are fine. If you want the high back we have the plans for the wood structure

Hi Paul,
Thanks for the reply.
I would indeed like to take a look at those drawings, are they in the archive or are they part of your own library?

Hi Paul,
If you could share those drawings that would be great. I found an upholstery guy, he needs any info you have so he can re-create the head rests.
Thanks

Hi Paul, I still need information on the star trek seats. You mentioned earlier in this post that you have access to drawings and/or measurements, I wanted to kick this post back to the top to see if you had forgotten. I really need anything related to how these seats were originally constructed, preferably with dimensions,please and thank you.
