    I found this one at the same Last Chance location. It is my second Plycraft chair but, of the two this one was closer to being complete and in decent shape. I have restored the walnut plywood and need to take apart the "flotilt" mechanism because it has lost its tension and leans back too far. I like taking things apart and fixing them and I only hope I can fix it because from what I've seen online, they are not very available.
    I got very excited the other night when I happened to be watching "Something About Mary" and the chair is there in the scene when Ben Stiller's character is lying on the couch going on and on at his therapist office and we see that over his shoulder that he is talking to an empty "MR. CHAIR"!!! Apparently it can be seen in "Arrested Development" as well.
    This is one of the few chairs in my collection that are actually in my house rather than at my workshop. I discovered the original Genuine Naugahyde tag tucked behind the cushion when I took it apart to clean it.
    Just like the Emeco navy chairs that got me started collecting, after finding one I see them more and more in different places. My wife gets tired of me pointing out the chairs in t.v. shows and movies.

      Great find! You sound super handy. I'm very very modestly handy but wish I was better at it. Especially with furniture. Any tips?
