Ebay had a complete set for a '66, even red!!! the seller told me he
looked it up and they would not fit the '67 :-( to bad cuz he only
wanted $5 each. an uphol. (how do you spell ah-pole-stry) shop here
in Nashville will make new ones for $100 - $300 EACH!!! Don't think
Is this common, can upholstery shops make new door panels?
I'd like to hear more about that, it would solve some problems
for me, not wanting to vacation in Hershey everytime some
interior part breaks. :)

Yes they can... it's done all the time on the show "Overhaulin".
In fact, you could make them yourself. Use the old as patterns. You
can buy the materials at a yardage shop, from an upholstery place, or
check the internet (Google for upholstery materials and supplies.) You
might not get it in the first try, but with practice you too can be
making your own panels. I have seen some really great self done padded
Check with Dearborn Classics.. they have different catalogs for
different lines (like my Mustang)
1965 Ford Mustang fastback 2+2 A Code 289 C4 Trac-Lok
Vintage Burgundy w/Black Standard Interior; Vintage 40
16" rims w/BF Goodrich Comp T/A gForce Radial
225/50ZR16 KDWS skins; surround sound audio-video.
I know Dearborn Classics has panels for a '67 2 door... They are over $300
each though and didn't even include the metal backing that hooks into the
door, you needed to reuse your old one and bond the door panel to it. Not
sure if they have 4 door panels but if they do they will be expensive. Your
best bet, since those prices seem out of your budget, is to check local
junkyards. If you find panels in decent condition you ahve a good cahnce of
getting red (it was a popular interior color) but if they are not red you
can get vinyl dye from many of the restoration parts companies that will
exactly match the original color options.
At my local yard here in NJ there is a '67 4 door LTD. I don't remember the
interior color, but if you'd like I can check the condition of those panels
for you. The LTD panels are different from the regular Galaxie 500 penels
though. Not sure if that makes any difference to you.
