Hi Sam.

The plastic inner covers...  If memory serves, there's a pin that
prevents the cover from sliding down and off.

After 40+ years of Corvair ownership, I should know this, but .

I tried to detach the backs of my front bucket seats from the bottoms

I need to get the backs off to send them to a guy in Texas without
damaging the upholstery. He is going to put correct style head rests on
them (a p.o.
removed the head rest seats years ago).

After removing the metal side covers/moldings from the seat backs, I see
the seat back pivots on the inner side of the seats and I see that the
outer pivots that are covered with what appears to be removable
Looking under the seats, I don't see anything indicating that by
removing the protectors, etc. I'll get anywhere. 

I don't see anything in the parts manual, assembly manual, or the shop
manuals (although I admit I don't have the body service manual) showing
details of the frames of the seats.

Thus I turn to the experts of VV!

Can it be done?
