When I bought my 65 basket case, it seems the driver seat was a high-back version from what may have been a 69. I took it out and replaced it with a 67 seat. All had the same stud pattern on the rails.
Most of the early fords have the same bolt pattern for the seat tracks. If you want to go to a late model seat (I have) you need to use the old tracks and either drill one new hole per rail or weld the rail to the seat bottom. I have seats out of a 89 GT and they are tons more comfortable than the 66's or 69's seats that I've had......

Wow, you don't like the 65-66 seats? The original seat in my car is probably the most comfortable car seat I've ever sat in. (except in the middle of summer in FL....ouch! hot black vinyl!) I guess each person is different. The fox body seats always give me a backache.

Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods!
I’ll get it started ;)
I have a 66 coupe with a 1979 302 2bbl in it.
It was rebuilt 15 years ago but only has about 10k miles on it since. It runs great, gets 19 mpg and uses no oil. If I was wise I'd leave it alone but there is no fun in that and I would like more get up and go. The car is a weekend cruiser...
I have encountered a small issue as of today, I normally check my lights before going out and I put on my hazards, they flash in the front, the hood scoop, the gauges but they aren't flashing in the taillights. When I step on the brake they go solid so obviously my brake lights are...
Well after lots of searching, want adds, bartering, "horse trading" I finally have a T5 to put in my car. I'm into it for $150 CAD ($110 USD) From all the research I did this will work fine for my "stockish" Sunday driver car. 1968 mustang 289, 3 speed.
I will use my existing clutch and...
One of the things I’m looking to do on my next build is a distributor delete, like how modern cars don’t have a distributor like our cars did in the factory and they have ignition coils on every spark plug. So has anyone done this and have any insight or can anyone recommend any kits? For a 289!
