Haven't got the dimensions but I just measured the width and length, then made a card template for the curved corners near the tailgate. Used jigsaw to cut out 9mm ply, then covered with carpet. Put some button head bolts through the old seat mounting points to secured it down.

Mine is older but assume it's a similar set up.

From years of experience with building vintage car interiors which were lined in plywood (then covered in leather or vinyl - orginally rexine) I would urge you to choose Birch plywood.
Birch plywood usually has a higher number of laminations is stronger, and less likely to delaminate with time.

Thanks everyone for your help, a special thanks to Gusthegorrilla whose template I used. Jimmy's mod is nearing completion, back seats out, 3/4 ply installed, starting to put in the 3 mm checkerplate rubber mat.
