Fastback Seat Platforms
#1
OK - I read the 'roughed in the floor pans today' thread, where there was discussion regarding the correct seat platforms vs. the ones that repro parts places have, and I gotta ask:

Does anybody have a new set of repro seat platforms for the fastback? My platforms are pretty much shot (like the floor pans) and I'd like to score a pair of new ones to go in shortly after I get the floor pans dropped in.

Thanks in advance to all.

these are the one's i put in my Mach 1. http://www.laurelmountainmustangparts.co...-3082.html Pretty good fit and good head room. I have been told they are not the right ones for a Fastback but hey once they are welded in who is going to see them through the carpet? Also they are cheaper than used ones I have seen on Ebay

I remember that post, I'd think Don at Ohio is probably your best source. I had them reuse my nasty ones when I had the pans done 9 years ago...Undecided

The repro ones are the coupe version. Much taller than the fastback ones.
I have them in stock.
Might have a used set of FB ones left.

The repros are actually only about 1/2 an inch taller than the originals.

Yea it is not enough to notice, my 72 was original and i had less head room in it than i do in my 73 with the repro riser's

Related question: Are the seat platforms necessary, or can I just bolt the seat rails directly to the floor with some reinforcements? I have aftermarket seats and have to fabricate mounts anyway.
