Doc,

Can anyone else confirm this???
As far as i'm aware a new floorpan was designed for the AU series. Ford worked in conjunction with Jaguar to design it. Apprantly they both use the design. So there is a Jaguar getting around with an AU floorpan.

the only reason I ask is, I have the opportunity to pickup a deceased estate 1981-1982 FD LTD, 351 with C6, reasonable exterior, paint work starting to flake etc. Interior is black leather and farkin immaculate to say the least. $600 buckaroos. If the pans were the same or similar, I was going to swap seats and then sell the LTD with an AU interior.

The 'X' series floorpan was different to the 'E' series.

No I didn't mean it that way.
I was just saying the AU floorpan is not similar to the previous models from XD - EL

The informed reply... The track mounting points are probably different, although you may be able to mount the AU seats onto the original runners. The floorpan was changed for the AU because IRS was introduced.

Just one other question regarding putting the AU seats into an FD LTD.... why?

Because my little desert flower, aka: penelope pitstop. The LTD has some rather nice, spick and span black leather seats which will look nice in the XR8. The AU seats I will put in the LTD and then sell. Some spending money for Oct when I shall introduce you to the top shelf...
