model A bucket seats?

Anyone know of a very low bucket seat for a model A?
We have accura buckets now (20 inches wide) that fit well, but we chopped the top 4 inches, and at 6'1" we have to hunchover to see out the windshield. It's a tudor sedan, so we prefer a folding bucket to access the rear. thanks.,

I used a set of seats out of a Volvo on my coupe, I am 6 ft. 2 in. tall and I chopped the top four inches. I had to take the risers off and mount my seat brackets directly to the floor to get the room that I needed.

model A buckets

FYI. found a set of seats from a 97 Miata. Only 19 inches wide. minor modification to flatten the mounting brackets and you sit about 3 inches off the floor. comfortable too. If this doesn't work, I'll get a shorter son.
