70 vert parts
« on: July 10, 2008, 02:16:28 PM »
Most of the parts for the car are still there, however I've found out that they don't have the front seats for it.  I've checked ebay but they don't have any there.  Does anyone have a clue where I could find them at a descent price?  I've gotten some ideas from Paddock, Mustangs Unlimited, and CJ Pony Parts.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Honestly, I'm more familiar with the fox body stuff.  But somebody told me that the seats for the 70 are one year only.  Can I use 69 as well?

Yeah, the rails are interchangable, so if the 69 rails don't have the same hole spacing, you can just change to the 70 rails on the 69 seats.  However, IIRC they are exactly the same for the 69-70 years.  Those 69-70 seats on Ebay at currently 49 bux looks like a good deal.  There are several days left, so just put it on your watch list then bid at the last minute.  The seat covers and foam may have to be replaced, but that's what restoration is all about.

Thanks for the help.  Those look like they're in good shape, but it's local pickup only no shipping.  The other set is in New York with a reserve not met.

I also thought the 69 and 70 seats were the same but from what the NPD catalog says all 70 seats came with high backs and not with a separate headrest. If you want to restore it to it's original condition you will need 70 seats or the high back ones from a 69 Mach 1.

I'm not going to able to restore to all original, because the motor & tranny aren't with the car.  Luckily we have an extra new model 302 laying around in the building.  We just have to find an AOD for it.
