My first body job was a 50 chevy, damn engine ran so quiet you couldn't hear it, had to see the fan turning to know if it was running. Anyway, I put a set of swivel buckets in mine out of a GTO. I would think you could use a set of buckets out of a t-bird that are electic. I set mine up to where I wanted them with blocks, then took measurements, then tig welded extentions so they bolted right in. I sure miss that car! Good luck!
