This is one of the first modifications that I have made to my 1972 Maverick. The original bench seats were a pain the the back, literally, so they had to go. I am not sure how universal this mod is to all Maverick/Comets.
I picked up the seats in a junkyard, they have only one adjustment on them, that is the usual forward and backwards. These seats did not bolt right in, in fact I had to drill four holes, two for each seat (Fig #1).
