Looking for a knob for the lever to tilt the seat forward on the passenger side of my 1970 Coupe Deville.  The lever is there and working just fine, I'm only missing the little chrome knob that goes on it.  I don't know for sure if it's different from driver's to passenger's side.  Needs to be in good shape, no chrome peeling or pitting.  Private message or respond here if you have one along with what you'd want for it.  Thanks very much for your time!

If I understand you correct you need the manual 'seat back release' on the lower seat back?

These would only be issued on two door models.

I have seen those for your coupe, have you tried eBay, or OPGI.  Someone here like Jeff Burland at Willington Cadillac ought to have something like that.  They were a pretty standard design across GM lines back then, most any GM brand should have them.

Yes, the seat back release lever knob is what I'm after.  Thanks for your responses guys, I've checked eBay and OPGI but was brain farting on the actual term for it, I'll check again today.  I don't have facebook, are Jeff or John members here?

There's a pic. I can find them repro for a 67-69 camaro/firebird and they look similar, but can't find much else.

Ah I see John is "Captain Cadillac", I've actually bought from him before off eBay.  Just wanted to check here first, I like buying direct from members of forums I'm on.  I guess I was anyway  :D

Well, John is out of them, and I haven't heard back from Jeff after he said he'd check for one, so I'm assuming he didn't find one, so still looking. Thanks everybody.
