Are there any split rear seats that fit an '83 GL Wagon?

Did Subaru make a divided rear seatback for the '83 wagon? If not, would the divided rear seatback from a hatch fit?

My bet is they will, you may need the center lower bracket to keep the split base in place and carpet (for the seatback/cargo area).

Got Tan ones if you wanna try!

82 Hatch, well it started out as one........
01 Forester, still looks like one........

Hmmm - interesting - so will hatch ones bolt in? Must confess I've never looked that close to compare the mounting points....

The upper locks are a bit different if memory serves(which it doesn't always).

I attempted to stick a set of Hatch split seats in a wagon, and width is different, plus bracketry and where it all has to mount is way different and in wrong locations......due to hatch and wagon having different seat elevation to start with.......

Sorry Dante.....:(

Later, John in Eugene.....
