I don’t know if I’m searching wrong or what, but figured I’d start a new post since I can’t hit on it, so sorry in advance if this has been previously discussed. If there is a prior link, please post it.

Has anyone taken a 65-66 front bench seat and had it custom reupholstered as the “Pony” interior using the Pony upholstery? If so what is involved and how much was the cost (I understand cost can vary due to geographic locations and independent shop labor)?

How rare is a front bench seat to begin with?

Thanks for any info...

If you mean this: I took repop Pony seat material and some '85 Mustang seats down to a well known local upholstery shop and had them combine the seat upholstery with the '85 seats. These were for my former 66 Mustang.
Cost was $800.00 some 10-15 years ago. The 85 seats sat higher as, at the time I didn't lower the seat pans, so, they were in the car about 2-3 years.

I would think you could use the bucket seat tops on the upper, a back seat bottom on the lower, and some extra main color material for the arm rest. Very cool.

TMI will make them for you. You have to call and have it done as custom order.

Someone must make a Pony upholstery kit for the front bench seat. A year or so back when Mustangs Unlimited was selling off their vintage parts, I noticed a maroon one for sale on their site. I wish I'd picked it up, the price was good, and I've got an extra bench seat laying around I've been thinking of putting in my car. I can't remember what brand it was.

Thanks for the replies and the above TMI picture.

So how rare (or common) is the front 65-66 bench? Was this just an option that a Buyer had the chance to select themselves, or was it a Dealer ordering selection of the time?

If there’s a prior thread that anyone knows of regarding bench seat stays, please do feel free to post and I’ll peruse it.

Appreciate the responses!
