Fairlane buckets compatible?

Postby Moses » Mon Aug 27, 2018 7:23 am

Does anyone know if the factory buckets from a 62 Fairlane are bolt-in compatible with a 63 Comet?

Looks to have the same pretty little console between the seats, but the seats themselves look slightly fatter more contoured.

From what i have found the early falcon comet seats are comparable to the thunderbird seats of the same year. ie 60-65 comet seat is the same as a 60-65 thunderbird. The seat covers swap between the 2 but i dont know if the seat tracks are the same or not.

Comet seats and T bird seats are completely different, the tracks do not interchange. I installed ‘64 T bird seats in my ‘64 Cyclone, it took some fabrication to adapt the Comet seat track to the T bird seat frame. I did not want the T bird track because it would not fit the contours of the Comet floor pan. What I like about the T bird seats is that you sit “in”them, with the Comet seats you sit “on” them.
Attached is a photo.
