Does the bucket seats in a fastback have a carpeted square on it in the back? Anyone have any pics of one I can reference ? Square like about 12x16 or so located behind the backrest of the bucket facing the back seat

I am pretty sure that the '63 is about the same as a '64 and mine does not have any carpet on the back side. Can't find any good pictures of the back side of my '64 seats, but everything behind the chrome trim on the side is metal.

The '64 has the hard shell on the back. The '63 hasn't. The '63 seat is also squarer looking than the '64.

I have all the seats for my s55 but its either almost 2000 bucks for reupholster or 600 for covers from dearborne. I think I'm just gonna go the cheaper route. It will still look good and I'll save some loot. Plus around here no one will know the difference. Everyone thinks its a galaxie anyway lol

What does dearborn covers look like, do they have the carpet or do they even show that side?

Nobody hardly even knows what a galaxie or mercury is so you'll be fine. lol

While we are on the subject of interiors.....anyone know if a reproduction dash for a 63 galaxie will work on a 63 marauder? I know they are different angles but just want to know if it will fit and look ok

Dearborn sent this to show me the rear of the bucket. There color of turquoise seems very light to me. Way lighter then there book. I just ordered a free color sample from Macs. They sell the same seat covers so I'm gonna see what there turquoise looks like

Colors are hard to replicate due to differences in the lighting used when pic was taken, the surrounding colors etc. even monitors can sometimes make a difference on what colors look like....

Dont have a clue about Mac's...
