I beg to differ, but I'm blatantly biased on this one, especially since Squarebirds.org is primarily a '58-'60 site:

Ford at one time did have two sets of holes in the lower seat cushion to allow the seat assembly to be move back 2" or so. I had thought this was also the case on '61'-'63 bucket seats used in Galaxies, Falcons, 'Birds, etc., but it's been some time since I've had a spare set to check. Most people unbolt the seat cushion from the rack/slide mechanism, or remove the seat track from the floor, and add plates/holes/bolts to allow them to move the cushion/seat rearward, then reassemble. How one person did this for a '64 T-bird can be found here:

There are other methods people have used that can be found by using the 'Search' function of the VTCI Forum with some keywords like 'leg room' but many of those point to issues with '55-'57 T-bird seat frames.
