Re: 1968 XR7 Front Door & Rear Interior Panels

I believe that we have been talking about these panels through the ebay message system. Let me know if I am correct about this. Thank you.

Re: WTB 1968 Deluxe Interior

I have some 68 decore parchment interior parts here but not a complete interior. I should have a pair of door panels, some parts of the front bucket seats and probably a few other pieces.

Re: Factory or owner add on?

I have never seen anything like it from the factory or even the factory accessories booklet. So I will go with it is an aftermarket part. My guess is that it is some sort of automatic headlight dimmer, along the lines of the late 1950s GM system. Where does the wiring coming off the back of the unit...

Re: 67-68 looking for parts

Unless you are building a 100 point correct show car, in which case you care about the CARLITE logo and the date code, then any local glass shop can provide you with a windshield. The 1965-1968 Mustang and the 1967-1968 Cougar are all the same size and will interchange.

Re: 71-73 High Back Bucket Seats

In black I have a bottom section only and a complete left seat. The left seat has the release knob on the outer side. I would need to pull them from storage to say much about their condition.

Re: 1967 dash face plate

Thanks for your help Don. My car seems to have the 1968 version using clips. The car was built in June on 1967, so maybe they ran out of the 1967 version using screws. I do not know if this happened or not, but you may be right. What I do know is that I have a 1967 standard style dash face pad here...

Re: 71-73 High Back Bucket Seats

I am pretty sure that I have some ginger colored XR-7 seats that are in pretty good condition if you want to stay with the stock look.

Re: Grecian gold colored paint

Any good parts store that mixes paint and deals with body shops should have no problem mixing your color. And many of those parts stores are also able to put your color in a spray can for you.

Re: 71-73 High Back Bucket Seats

1. There is a difference in the earlier years and I believe that still carries over to the 71-3 cars. The XR-7 seats have more padding than the standard seats. 2. I cannot say for sure but my guess would be no. 3. Interchange as in will they fit, yes. Interchange as in looking the exact same, no. If...
