    I've got a 65 Dart that currently has a bench seat. I'd like to convert to bucket seats and I also have a 66 console. I found some 65 seats but will they work with the 66 console? From photos the 65 seats don't appear to have room for the 66 console. Are the 65 and 66 seats the same?

    The 66 inner track is different than 63-65. I sold a 66 Barracuda roller and was going to put 65 bucket seats in it. That's how I know.
    66 was first year for full length and that is probably why the track is different.

      Yep. The 65 console was a shorty and didn't go between the seats like the 66 and newer ones did.

        65 seats are wider than 66. 66 and 67 seats are the same.

        This ^^^^^

        65 seat frames are totally different compared to the 66/67 frames.

        I will be using 66 buckets and a 68 B Body buddy seat/armrest in my 65.
