Ford bench seats. Anything similar available?
Posted by vince311 on Thursday, March 9, 2017 11:10 AM

Anyone seen something like this available? I've seen them scratch built, but not sure my skills are there quite yet. The split bench below is out of a 70/71 Torino.

Also looking for seat belts and steering wheel, like those shown. thanks in advance.

You can make your own seat belts by purchasing photo-etched seat belt hardware by Model Car Garage, cutting some strips of masking tape, threading the tape through the hardware, and then folding it over to finish the buckle/latch end of the belt. Then take your belts and lay them on a piece of waxpaper, then you can paint them whatever color you want. When dry you can cut them to length and using a little glue you can put them on the seats however way you'd like them to look. It's EASY.

I have your steering wheel. Send me a PM with your mailing address and I'll pop it in the post.

The seat belts you want, are in the Mobious 1965 Comet kit. PM me and I will send you the seat belts out on my Comet kit.

Decided to repurpose a spare 70 Torino rear seat to build the front bench. Fingers crossed
