mustang odds and ends

I love classic mustangs. My first car was a 68 so was my second. Now they are becoming one car worth owning. I like the interiors details in the pre66 cars. does anyone know if things like the heater controls window cranks, and headlight switch will interchange between a 66 and 68? Also are the seats the same on the 67 and 68? I know the pattern is different but are the frame and foam?

I can't answer for the window cranks and other knobs, but the seats themselves could be the same frame and foam from the original first generation '64 1/2 to '73, depending on which interior package was ordered with the car. When the Mach 1 showed up, (I think in '69), there was a different seat standard with a built in headrest. That seat became available in other Mustang models as well from '69 to '73.
Keep in mind, the Mustang didn't start out as a fancy muscle car, it was a basic family car advertised for "$1964 for 1964". The seats themselves and the seat covers were not very good quality, but that is true of pretty much all of the seats of that era into the early '70s.

I have a '65 Mustang coupe and used to have a '66 falcon 2dr. I still marvel at the marketing job Ford did by reskinning the Falcon, they called it a Mustang and it sold like hot cakes.
I still prefer the Falcon over the Mustang for comfort. Everything else about the driving of the 2 cars is the same imho.

The seats in a 67 and 68 are the same except for the pattern. The 65 and 66 are different and are much thinner and less padded as the 67-68. The interior knobs, heater controls are different as well and not interchangable with the 65-66. Both years came with a standard interior and a custom interior which had the pony interior on them. Deluxe door panels and woodgrain trim on the dash. Mustangs were pretty unique in that they had several options back then. Rally pacs, consoles, even mirrors had options.
