Default racing steering wheel and racing driver and passanger seats

Hey all,

If you seen Hit&Run the movie than you've seen that sick 1967 Lincoln Continental. Now, I need help with choosing a good racing steering wheel and a good racing seat for driver and passanger. I was hoping if someone knew good manufacturers who make good quality racing steering wheel and racing seats and racing seat belts for a 1967 lincoln continental.

Racing a Lincoln Continental, well that's a new one. Traditionally one does not buy a racing seat to fit a car, they make the car fit the racing seat.

I'm betting they've put too much power into the thing and want racing seats so they can stay at the controls while trying to wrangle the thing. Or perhaps it's on the strip?

You're right about the fitment of racing buckets, though. As for steering wheels...well...those are supposed to be bespoke fit to the steering column, but there's plenty of quality wheels with a universal adapter kit that interfaces between the column and the wheel. I imagine the wheel mount specs on that Lincoln are the same as for any Ford sedan from that era.

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

Whatever type of wheel you get make sure it has a quick disconnect, otherwise getting in and out of the car is going to be a pain, especially with a roll cage.

Do you need a FIA approved seat or just a bucket seat? There is a difference. Don't do what I did and buy a seat before you really know what you are looking for. I got sold a seat/bracket that I was told was made for strict road racing. What I really got was the Corbeau Forza seat (non FIA version) and a bracket that had fking seat adjustment. Before I realized all this I had modded the stuff to try and get it in the car and couldn't return it.
