I actually posted a similar question as I just got my 65 back from the interior shop and the seat movement is very limited. I have confirmed it is moving the full range of motion, but that is very limited compared to todays standards. (My 56' Bel Air goes back further.)

Ya it really sucks . I just looked under and the shop never used the orignal factory holes for the sets. there forward almost 2 in. which isnt alot but it makes a differance . I'm goiong to pull the seats out tonight and move them back 4 in. I'll have to drill thru the main cross braces but it wont affect anything.
