dealer says no power seat option with pewter interior?

Still trying to sort out our order. The fleet manager at the dealer is now saying they cannot order a power driver seat or duel power seats with a pewter interior. Power seats are only available with the charcoal interior. He even said it's odd and doesn't make sense but he called to make sure and yes, it's correct.

Does anyone know if it's possible to make a non power seat power? I'm not very tall and I'm not sure I'll be able to see well enough unless the seat can be raised up. I really don't care for cars with black interiors, especially large vehicles. The fact that an interior color besides black was an option was part of our reason wanting a ford over a mercedes.

I do not have power seats. It looks easy to add spacers between the seat frame and the pedestal. Longer bolts probably required.

I was told by Corning Ford in California that you had to order leather upholstery if you wanted two power seats, but you could get the driver's seat as power with cloth.

We ordered a 10 way power seat in pewter cloth (driver only). Of course we don't have it yet and we still don't have a window sticker (should be soon!), so I can't verify that it is actually going to happen. My order also shows that MFT has a cd and we all know how that's going! ;-) On the dealer's copy, it looks like is a #212

Put in a call to them to see if we did the leather front seats it would then allow a power driver seat and the pewter interior. Waiting for a call back!

Leather seats are not an option if you go 350 LWB EL Wagon. Or at least that was what we were told.

They called back to say it won't work like that. It's a 350 long wheelbase, non extended length. They said leather isn't even an option anymore.
