Is the seat foam pre-cut, or just big blocks you have to sculpt yourself?

Very cool.  Are your fiberglass seat bottom covers intact?

You can mail an inquiry to Chrysler Historical and get a copy of the IBM Punch Card and a decode of the fender tag.  I believe the cost was around $40.
 
Here's mine:
 

 

 
Here's what's left of the Broadcast Sheet:

Yep! and from the replacement seats from the 4 door too.
 
The 4 door had a power passenger seat, so I am going to install that since I need to reharness the interior anyway.
 
I took the seats out last night.  Going to take the dash apart this weekend and replace the dash pad.  Polish up the dash pieces too.  Tomorrow I am running up to the paint supply asnd getting some fresh ebamel for the dash so it can be painted.  Then I get to put all this back together!  Best time is when the seats and carpet are out.
 
I have to change the fuel tank too.

Fun, fun, fun.  With no projects on the horizon I'm a bit bored.  Too bad you weren't closer.  I'd come over and give ya a hand.

No, although it can come out without pulling the windshield. . .
 
I'm just going to work the frame where it is.
 
I am going to gut it to the frame and pull the heater box so I can replace the hoses and heater core.  That will let me detail the firewall also.  Goint to be a trick with that motor in there.  I'm not pulling that sucker again.
 
I am just going to change the engine color after the fire wall is done.  Need to strip all the crap off it first and replace the carb anyway.  Going to restore the A/C as well

I'd pull the dash if you can.  Reinstalling the A/C plenum with the dash in place is going to be a challenge.  MUCH easier with the dash out of the way.

Anybody know where the most common place for these 65's to leak in the front?  I have a puddle on the passenger side and need to lock it down before I install the new carpet

Mine had two spots over there. 

One was the corner of the windshield gasket  That will drip onto the glovebox and then to the floor.  With the fiberboard glovebox, should be easy to tell
 
Second was the seam where the bottom of the cowl meets the firewall.  Crud goes in through the vents by the wipers, and accumulates in the nooks and crannys inside the cowl.  After patching that up, I added some black aluminum window screen to the inside of the vent slots.  It's practically invisible, but keeps the leaves, and such from dropping through.
