Believe it or not the maximum weight capacity of an automobile seat is 150 pounds per seating position. This standard was put in place beginning with the new 1968 model cars and still remains in effect today. HTH. -Jim

Sounds like information from some unrealistic, unknowing, lack of common sense govt agency, think tank, some left wing research group. But, thank you for passing this on---I know its not your view. I wonder how the auto industry would/did respond to this recommendation.

It was part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Act of 1966. There was a host of, at the time, new regulations that were issued effecting vehicle safety and emission controls. The car manufacturers had to be in compliance by January 1, 1968. The seat weight standard was just one of at least one hundred things that were effected. Everything from the crankcase ventilation system to the door handles had a new spec. I'm sure that the car manufacturers were scrambling back in the late'60s! Glad I was able to help. -Jim
