I got mine from Legendary but I have buckets. Give them a try and they may have the proper ones.

Are those vinal, or cloth and vinal? Looks like you need about everything. Perhaps keep your eye out for a parts car with decent interior.
SMS likely can supply the cloth, vinal can be found through a local trim shop supplier.

Yeah, it's rough. I have not bought the car yet, still exploring options.

All things considered, there probably tends to be more requests for the '67-'68 2dr Fury bench seat items than for the similar '65-'66 cars. Buckets would be a different situation, though.

By the time you might spend $900.00 for a similar '68 Fury III seat cover kit, THEN pay a good trim shop to replace all of the underlayment the covers will reside upon, PLUS the final seat cover installation, You might as well find a better running-driving car that has a complete, in reasonably good shape interior, and BUY that one.

Just curious, what is the reason you are thinking about the car pictured?

Just some thoughts,

Well, that's exactly what I am weighing here. I have a line on a 65 with a fairly nice interior, but substantially more money. It also and "A" motor, and the '66 is a big block. Looks like from what I am finding, I will likely write this '66 off.

What condition is the rest of the car and what kind of price do they want. Do you have more pics of it.

Run don’t walk. At best this is a parts car and not much of one. To even attempt to get this car in decent shape would require extensive rust repairs, a total interior and so on. Keep in mind that some parts are very difficult to find for these cars. Spend your money on a better one.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm going to get this '65 instead. It's got butt ugly paint, and lower 1/4 panel rust, but body and trim are arrow straight, and interior is useable. Best of it's a daily driver now.

It's really not rough, compared to what I have been looking at for the last month. I live in the southwest, and most stuff out here is rust free, so it brings silly money. I throw on a couple lower 1/4s no problem, and I can handle the interior repairs myself. It's the first car I have looked at that I could be test driven. And, it's a verified 1 owner car. we just got to agree on a price. we're about $700 apart right now.

As a warning the quarter panels are a bit of a problem. The ones you buy are crap, just ask me I went through it. This is not a reason to give up on it just something to be aware of and know that it will take a bit more work.
From what I see the 65 & 66 Fury’s are getting more popular now and I have actually noticed a lot of them on this forum now. They are great cars that have never received thhe attention they deserve.

Yeah, I've been doing a little research, and the pics of the panels that are available, look pretty nasty. The company that produces them, doesn't have great reviews, on their other panels. Those on the car are not "real" bad so I may be able to just make my own patch panels. I hope. I chopped a 37 Plymouth truck a lot of years ago, that actually came out real good, so shouldn't be too much of a challenge.

Nice truck. Making patches for these cars aren’t bad, especially if you can build a truck like that. Just really pay attention to the lower quarter on the 65 and how it gently rolls out and back in. Too may people make them flat and they end up looking like the nasty patch panels out there. If you can get that pattern from your existing quarters your in good shape. If you go above the lower line pay attention to the subtle line half way up that starts toward the back and slow fades away, the patches miss it too.

Obviously, the '65 is a much better canvaas with which to start. The replacement quarter panels cannot have all of the little contours are they are most probably not a Chrysler/FCA/Stelantis licensed product. Hence, they have to have some "errors: in them.

As for the color, check out Eastwood's Optiflow system. DON'T laugh when you watch their video! Might be just the ticket for a gradual color transition.

Good luck on the negotiations!

I stumbled upon your post while looking for help with some bucket seats I have in my 66 sport fury. I had a 66 fury III with the factory bench seats that are still in great shape but probably just need recovered or some stitch repair if you are still looking. I don't know how they would be shipped or the cost but you can have them if you want. I'm in Phoenix AZ if you or anyone you know are going to be headed this way anytime soon. I have other parts left available still too if you see you need anything else. see pics for the seats

Did you buy this car? If so, are you parting it out... yes... 2 years later I'm asking... sorry.
