69 mustang seats in 65 F100

I have recently purchased a 65 F100 and am going to be taking on redoing the interior this winter. I have read numerous threads about putting in 65/66 mustang buckets but wasn't sure if 69 buckets would fit. I can pickup a pair or buckets in pretty good condition for $100 and if they will bold up with the same brackets will probably pick them up. Anybody know if they'll work. This is an awesome site and I get psyched to get out and do some work whenever I log on.

cheers
Charles

I am sure you can fit them in the truck.... but, are they high back buckets? i have seen a few of these trucks with high back seats and personally i don't like the way it looks. it blocks most of the back window making it hard to see out of. something to think about.

I guess I don't really know. They do have a head rest but the back doesn't seem too high. I know what you mean about the high back blocking the window and I agree I don't really like the look. I currently have an 80's era bench and it just looks out of place to me. I was hoping for something a little more period and a little more comfy.

Thanks for the great reply and for all your other great posts

I put a pair in a 69 C10 back in high school; they where high backs; only problem I had was they rubbed the back window. And they only look good with a center console; which I made one of wood and cover it with marine leather! I then added a 8 track player into the console; talking about true old school!!

I would say so; but it the rail / brackets are different; just unbolt the ones on your current seat and install them on your new seat. Have done that numerous times! Changing out the seat brackets is usually done due to the height difference & angle of the rails between the bench seats not the over-all lenght of the seat.
Hope this tip helps!

61 to 79 is a bolt in.

80 to 96 needs the 61 to 79 brackets and they bolt in.

Seat mount area is the same basic design from 1961 to 1979...

I wanna do the same thing.

I got a 1966 Mercury M100 with a bench, I'm searching my options. I like the idea of buckets, and I found a set of 1969 mustang buckets for $200, but then found out I have to get brackets from of the other members, but I have no idea if the 69 buckets bolt up to the 1966 brackets, OR figure out how to repair the springs and replace the mouse infested foam and fabric of the original bench seat. So my question is: Does the 1969 seats bolt to the custom seat brackets...and which do you think is more cost effective??

1965/66 Rangers came with Mustang bucket seats, which are the same 1965/70, except 1969/70's with high backs.
