Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Here are instructions for factory seats there should be threaded holes in the floor board to mount either fixed seats or quick remove seats. When you go to the pick a part hopefully you can find a ford van with factory seats it should be a direct bolt in. If you find conversion van seats they are normally bolted to the floor with 1/2 bolts and big flat washers. They will need to have holes drilled and can be a problem getting to the underside to get to the nuts. The tanks or frame rail can be in the way. I recomend trying to find a factory bench seat.
