67 Cyclone GT questions

Postby scarelane » Tue Aug 14, 2007 9:38 am

Will doors interchange with 1967 Fairlane?

What is the flange to flange rearend width?

Lower rear quarter patch panels for 1967 Fairlane work?

I know some old ford/lincoln/mercurys shared seats, just different trim/upholstery. . What seats work good in the 67 cyclone (buckets)?

Anyone make glass front fenders for 67's?


-Thanks, and sorry for the ignorance (i happended upon a 67 cyclone gt in straight shape but it is missing a few things and i have only played with fords til now)

Scarelane,

can't help you on your body questions, but I installed a pair of '65 mustang buckets into my car. I made up my won mounts (a little rough and could be refined, but they are solid)... once recovered to match the interior, they look great... you may also find parts that will fit from a '66..

I had ordered an exhaust kit for a '66 Fairlane and found that the tail-pipes were about 8-10 inches too short when installed on my Comet...

good luck with your project..

Did some research and FYI:

67 Comet Rearend width: 54.5" housing flange to housing flange, or around 59.5" Wheel mount to wheel mount.

Leaf Spring pad spacing is 44.5" and happens to be the same as the late 70's early/mid 80's F-150's although the width of those rearends is quite a bit wider (4" and change)
