coupe vs fastback vs convertible buckets
#1
Are the three really different from each other? I saw some Grandé hounds tooth upholstery sets that said coupe only. I'd like to try them in my fast back.

Huh

1973 Mach 1 Q code 351 4V, 9A paint, standard interior, 3.50 rear, C6 trans.

The rear seats are different, but the fronts are not to my knowledge.

The seats, as in front seat frame, are the same except for a difference in the rear latch position. On 71s it is in the rear center. On 72&73s it is at the outboard edge of the seat back.

The upholstery may or may not be different depending on the interior option selected. I cannot say for sure if any were the same since I am a Mach 1 snob but if I were to bet, I'd bet that they all are different among the 5 body types.

Well, what a manufacturer thinks a car came with is not quite the same as what will fit in the seat frame.

I would say with 99% certainty that you could order any available front seat uphostery set from any of the repo places and they would fit your seat frames. Whether or not that exact upolstery type/commbination came on your year car is a different questionSmile

For 71-3, the front seats and foam were the same for all 3 body styles.
Rear seats were different for
fastback
coupe
convertible

I can order any style upholstery and get it made for any of the 3 models
They do have a custom charge when I special order custom sets

Just curious, did the Comfort Weave seats only come from the factory in the convertibles? I assume this was to keep the seats cooler when the top was down.

Deluxe comfortweave could be ordered for the coupes and fastbacks
A lot of Boss 351's had it.

In 71 it was an option on the convertibles in 72 and 73 it was standard.

Hey Don,
Do the convertible upholstery sets come with the stainless steel bars or are they something you apply after? I assume the front buckets have been replaced on my car as the stainless pieces are gone but are there on the back seat. If they had torn or fallen off I assume I would see some holes or other evidence?
