Hey guys I pulled up on the lever to move the seat but the passenger side won’t budge so I wanted to get the whole seat out. Anyone know how this thing comes out?

There is a cable/wire that slips into an "equalizer" so the latches on both sides function equally.
I doubt you can get at it without removing the seat which is bolted to the floor.
You'll see where in the photo.

Before you go through the work to remove the seat, I would first try the following. I did this on my 58, was the first repair I did on the car after purchase, done at a rest stop on the drive home, took all of about three minutes, and has functioned perfectly ever since.

Attached to the drivers side seat latch is a thin stiff wire rod that runs under the seat over to the passenger side latch. When you manually release the drivers latch, the attached wire rod pulls to release the passenger latch. You should be able to see and reach the rod from under the front of the seat. I would verify that the rod is still there, and that it is attached to both latches. If it is, the rod is easily adjusted. The equalizer function in the thin rod is a simple bend in the rod; bend it a little more with a pair of pliers to shorten the rod length so it pulls the passenger latch properly. But don't bend too much or the passenger latch will stay in the released position.

I'll be replacing my seat covers soon. So sooner or later I'll need to figure out how it is removed. Does this take 2 people?
