Ford Torino seat buns

A customer called yesterday with a 1970 Ford Torino that he is restoring. He has already purchased reproduction seat covers, but wants me to find new seat buns for him and to install both.

Has anyone come across a supplier for Torino seat buns. I've looked everywhere that I know, but no luck. I could really use some help with this.

Thanks
Andy

there is foam available for all years/styles of early Mustangs seats, 70' lists both std $60? and deluxe/grande $114? available.....any of the Mustang resto parts houses will have it,

don't know if Torino is an "exact match"...maybe a different style/yr?

Mustangsunlimited.com has a full catalog online

(Help! somebody give me another good complete catalog online source, I don't want to constantly "plug" Mustangs Unlimited...they are OK with me but)

Ford Torino seat buns

Thanks red65mustang for your reply, but I have my doubts that the Mustang seat cushions will work in a Torino application.

I could really use the help here guys. Anyone have a source for 70 Torino replacement seat cushions?

Thanks,
Andy

I searched alot for seat foam cushions for a 68 Torino last year. No luck. I made my own. Have you tried Auto Krafters on the east coast ? Tom

Torino seat cushions

Thanks for the tip. I called them this morning, but they don't have any for Torinos.

Thanks for you effort!

Torino seat foam

Thanks Comet Boy, but in 35 pages of interior parts they only had new seats. I guess I'll have to make them after all.

Thank you for the effort.
