65-72 F-100 Ranger bucket seat brackets

You guys have been very helpful in the past and I'm sure someone will have a great solution for my latest issue.
I am looking for the dimensions and or possibly some really good pictures of the seat brackets that were used under the bucket seats of a 65-72 F-100 Ranger package. I know this option was pretty rare but I'm not sure how rare. The seats and tracks are the same as a Mustang? The brackets are very unique with odd angles and seem to be impossible to find. I am hoping to make a set for my 66 truck project. Does anyone have a set that they would be willing to measure? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...........ROB

Head over to Fordification.com and download the PDF'ed shop drawings (CADD).

A plasma cutter (or band saw) and a HD pressbrake and you can make'em yourself.

The seats/tracks are the same as 1965/70 Mustang/1967/70 Cougar except 1969/70's w/high backs.

The brackets are very unique with odd angles and seem to be impossible to find.
How many would'ja like?
The brackets are reproduced, FTE member Bill W (Tucson AZ) has them / Bill Wilson (me) sent you an email with Bill Wilson's (Bill W) email address.

There are four specific brackets: right & left inner and right & left outer. These bolt to the floor pan, then to the seat tracks...raise and level the seats.

Bucket seats were part of the 1965/66 F100/250 2WD, 1966 F100 4WD Ranger package, but there was no such package after 1966. Bucket seats were optional for all 1967/72 F100/350's, Rangers or not.

Interesting package for the 66 f100 4wd ranger bucket seats in a 4x4 i haven't seen any factory 4x4's come with them personally or heard of anyone on here owning one. I guess they are quite rare not many left ford with 4x4 and buckets?

1966 F100 4WD's have coil spring front suspension, use the same cab as 1965/66 F100/250 2WD.
