We had a member that installed late model Mustang seats.  They worked pretty well with the factory rear seat.
His thread is here:  http://forum.grantorinosport.org/power-surges-73-gts-resto-coyote-5-0-project_topic16416_post177169.html" rel="nofollow - http://forum.grantorinosport.org/power-surges-73-gts-resto-coyote-5-0-project_topic16416_post177169.html

I wonder if the Mark IV seats would fit? 2nd gen Explorer seats can be modified to fit, and they offer lumbar adjustments as well.

I have an original power seat in my '72 Squire and it does indeed help to find a better driving position.

John mentioned it, power seats were common in 77-79 Tbirds, which are easy to find and are the same platform as 72-76 Torinos.
