I spotted a ratty looking console while at the Fall swap meet. It had no price on it so I held it up for the guy to quote me a price. "$350," he said.

I sat it back down and walked away.

Of course I saw them several times when I wasn't looking. Missed out on one recently on the FFOG Facebook page - doesn't pay to sleep in when wanting to buy parts! I've also reached out to a couple of individuals that listed consoles in the FCA newsletter - one just sold his last one and the other hasn't responded to voicemail or e-mails. I'll continue to contact them with hopes of getting a response. Granted it isn't for my Falcon rather my '66 F-100 4x4. Found a set of bucket seats for it last fall and want to do a Ranger look-a-like sans the carpeting.

I debated doing the same sort of thing in my '66 F100, but went a different route. May still keep my eye out too because I like that look more than what I did... though the '01 Buick leather buckets in mine do feel very good.

I'd been looking for Mustang seats for a couple of years. Every set I found was ripped to shreds and in either black or blue (my truck is Turquoise and White). Found a set on Craigslist last fall in Buckley and timing worked out as I was heading over the mountains for the weekend. They are white and cleaned up nicely with minimal wear and tear on them. Bought the brackets and now waiting to pull the pickup in the garage to get the seats installed. In the meantime I'll try to locate a console.....

When I researched this (on the Ford Truck Enthusiasts site) there was some mention of brackets needed to adapt the seats to the truck, which is all the factory did originally. These brackets where being reproduced by someone on the site, but I never saved the information. I'm sure it's still there if you hunt for it.

If you're bored someday and want to get even more bored and see what I did on my '66, here's my thread on the Ford-trucks site:

Duh. Now I see where you said you bought the brackets. Sorry.

All good. Bill Wilson used to make the brackets and retired. Here's the website for the individual that took it over.

I actually paid more for the brackets than the seats! On the winter to do list but the Falcon to do's and the Mustang to do's are taking precedence at this point.

Followed your thread on FTE - wish I lived closer to learn from you.

Thanks - but learn "along with", perhaps. I may post a lot, but don't mistake that for knowing. I'm always learning from my mistakes along with the rest of you and post what I know from doing that. Just been at it since I was 10, so I tend to have a lot of mistake-learning in my past to choose from.


I remember hearing the brackets were costly. Can't recall if it had already shifted hands, or was just in the works. I wanted buckets, but not "that much." I think I paid all of $50 and a couple cans of dye for the leather seats in it now. It takes me to the dump, swap meets, and hardware stores and that's what I built it for.

Update - Cory was able to locate a Comet console (practically identical to the Falcon). Can't wait to see how it will look in the truck

I was actually lucky and scored two consoles. One in better condition than the other. Should receive them in the next week or so.
