There should be little metal plugs that cover the holes underneath the car, they could be covered up with crud after the years or even undercoat, once you find them they just pry out with a small screwdriver unless they are rusted solid then that can be a bit of a bear to get them out.

The full size Ford galaxies actually had two floors. There will be rubber oblong plugs directly under the area where your seat track studs are located. Pop those plugs out with a flat tip screwdriver. Once the plugs are gone you'll need a 1/2" deepwell socket and a 3/8" rachet to get the nuts off from the studs through those holes. They should come off fairly easy as they should have been kept dry inside that first floorboard. Good luck, Kenny/MrblueOval

Thanks; that wasn't my Galaxie - I have a '69 but it worked exactly the same. Got the seat out in less than an hour and I had been expecting DAYS of work. Many thanks!

Great, glad to help. Anyone with a 69 Galaxie is good in my book. I have 2 of them. Kenny/ MrBlueOval
