It's just the upper part of the backseat that doesn't fit - but can with a bit of modification (and isn't that what Fordmods is all about?!)

fairlane interior would be easier to fit. as modding the brackets on the seat back is not easy.

Velour is an option just got to find decent colour to match the interior might even change the whole colour scheme by painting dash new carpets etc

Yeah my dad had an EL Fairmont wagon. Damn that thing was cumfy. Velour like ambers and really nice to sit, could drive for hours and not get a sore bum.
Looked good aswell, so maybe that is also something you could consider.
