Yes! That DeeZee aftermarket wind deflector was removed immediately!

Not sure why they felt a need for it. Similar to what most station wagons had in the '70s.

They put it on cause it helped keep the back door window cleaner from road dirt thrown up. The draft created blew the dirt down instead of up from the air rushing under the vehicle.

Default More on the removable squad bench.

Better photos of the removable squad bench. I have never before seen a factory-built squad bench that was removable(not built-in).

Steve Loftin??

I have not. Perhaps this was an aftermarket installation?

Looking at the hardware, the answer might be that it was delivered from the factory without a squad bench, however, the buyer wanted a squad bench, so the factory made one, along with the mounting hardware and installed it. From the picture, showing a floor compartment, it is obvious that it was added later. Looking at the brackets, they look like they are a combination of standard hardware, and specially bent stainless steel parts that the factory would have the ability to make without much effort, to accommodate the buyers wishes.

You will also notice that the floor storage access door is split into 2 doors and not a single door, as is usually the case. This 2-door configuration was obviously done at the factory. When the bench is out, you can open either side. When in, you still have access through the left door. I don't believe that it was an aftermarket installation.

my guess was a custom order. it is not a quick take out thing. but not a all day job. I was wondering when I looked it over if there were cot bars behind it. that way if you had a number of people to move you could remove the bench put in both cots and hangers. in 1974 small town there would be time to do that. it would not be handy but it could be done
