Hi does anyone know the approximate dimensions of 68-69 torino/Fairlane/Ranchero bucket seats? 

I have a chance to buy some 69 cougar buckets that actually look the same (even the tilt forward lever) from pics except upholstery? My upholstery guy can cover them in 68 style covers so I think it will look close ??.... Just not positive if dimensions are the same or close... The cougar seats are 25 1/2 high in back (without headrest- from floor to top of back) x about 21" wide seat back at widest point x about 21 wide cushion as well.

Any help would be appreciated , just bought this 68 Fastback gt 302 cheap and starting the process Shocked

Also have a 68 ranchero 289 Fairlane 500 looking for a new home :-)

Wow, thank you very much taking the time to do that!Thumbs Up Looks like the cougar seats are 3 inches skinnier on the width... 

Wonder if the upholstery guy could widen them without looking dumb... 

I think by the time I paid him that I could get some of the cool scat 90 classic bucket seats.... Has anyone used them? How are they?

Thanks again so much! Big smile
