The rear seats no as the fold down sections are different between the sedan and wagon. Obviously anything can be done if you chuck enough money and time at it.

Thought I would just update this for anyone that is interested in doing this.

It is not possible to fit rear BA sedan seats to a BA wagon. I tried and the dimensions of the seats are just too different for it to work.

Also the way the sedan seat swing down is way different to the wagon. I tried using sedan mounts, swapping foams and covers tried just about everything. The dimensions between the two seats are just way too different.

Just hope this saves someone alot of time as it certainly wasted alot of mine.

Your best bet is just get the rear seats re-trimmed to suit the fronts. There are a few people on ebay who can re-trim the seats for $3 to 400, but i have heard and experienced waiting times of upto and over a month for them to get done. In hind sight going to a propper motor trimmer is the best bet.

if i seen this earlier i would of suggested it, if the seats covers wont swap than you can just get the rear seat retrimmed. it cost my brothers mate $500 for the back seat and the 2 front seats to be retrimmed in an old suzuki sierra in the original material, so my guess is a back seat alone for a falcon would be around 400+

you can get sedan rear seat to fit- it has been done before, you need to make sure it is out of a long wheelbase. (ie, fairlane,LTD) AU-BF longwheel base rear seat should fit the wagon, you will however need to swap foam and materials onto your existing frame so that you have the retractable centre seat belt (which is seat mounted, not parcel shelf mounted). I am going through this same senario myself atm. Also note that all seatbelts are grey, (except AU3 wagons i think have both grey and black seat belts available.) So this will also affect the colour of seat your chasing. I myself am looking for a Black AUII Leather rear seat, and will match it with Black leather BA/F XR Front seats.

The Black rear belt for the wagon are from the AU Series 3 SR model and i believe are still available from ford. I bought all new rears in Black for my wagon. If you decide to get the belts from Ford dont tell them its for a BA or BF because it will confuse them and you will end up with the std grey ones. Just tell them its for an AU SR.
