    Thanks! I'm diggin' your '72!

    I'm a transplant, I moved here like 9 years ago from back east.
    I love it. I love the fact that I can ride my motorcycle year round out here. ;)
    Back east, the bike would have already been stored for winter. 5 month riding seasons suck!!!

    My '75 GT as done by Tullahoma Seat Cover of Tullahoma, TN. I wanted the interior to match the exterior. The seats are Cadillac.

    Those are 2002 Cadillac Deville seats. The seat belts are mounted in the seats. I had them installed when the Ranchero was repainted and the interior was largely gutted. Body man told me the seats weren't that bad to install. Simply took a big hammer!

    I have plenty of big hammers! Good to know may want to upgrade seats on one of the two ranchero's someday and i like those. Dig the seat belt/part of the seat thing make installation easier and cleans up interior as well. Can I assume those are power and heated?

    I pulled the bench and found the seat frames. Repaired the springs and had new upholstery and foam installed. Special thanks to 72 GTVA for his assist on the seats. New carpet. (Floors were rust free). Found the console right here in Portland, OR. Had a new console lid made and found various pieces to finish console. Just need a floor-shift column to complete interior.

    Here's what I have so far it's hard to tell from the picture, but it's a black and red hounds tooth pattern. I'm pretty sure the instrument panel is original. Would really like to find a clock for it. I've checked eBay and Amazon. Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    I would install a oil pressure gauge in there or you can do a digital clock.

    I'm trying to learn more about the mechanics of the car, may I ask why an oil pressure gauge would be a good option? The engine is not a 73 but a 79 400 ford truck V8 engine with a 2 barrel carburetor.

    An oil pressure gauge can give you some indication of mechanical problems if something happened to the oiling system. Even a factory gauge is much better than an idiot light. BTW, did you receive my Private Message/Conversation?
