Default Bench Seat for a 1965 Mustang Coupe

I would love to get a bench seat for my coupe...have you heard of anyone selling theirs or can I buy an aftermarket seat or possibly one off of a Falcon?

I like those bench seats with the arm rest. I wouldn't mind having one for my car. I thought that 65-66 was the same. I don't think that 67 is the same. It could be though.

Wouldn't that interfere with your T5? Or at least if someone is in the middle. Plus wouldn't it be a little harder to get in the back seat with a bench seat? Althought I guess it folds forward just the same as all seats...

I don't know if it would interferre with the shifter or not. The seats still open the same as the buckets for rear seat access. I wonder if the bench seats were only in cars with automatic transission.

I know there were a small percentage of all classics (not just mustangs) back in the day that strangely came with a bench seat and manual. I'm pretty sure you'll be fine unless someone is sitting in the middle, which is kinda what the bench seat is for. But with the trans hump, it's not really a comfortable place to sit in the first place.

Not sure what to tell you.
