frt seat

I have a bench seat and I need buckets for 31 Ford 5 window coupe, I am 6'2" 254 lbs and I need lower bucket seats, what colour are your vette buckets? my bench seat is red and new? If you still have them and they are red or black, where are you located?

DanTwoLakes Thanks, Bob. Those seats are out of my wife's '77 Corvette, and I guarantee they're just not comfortable. I would hate to drive more than 100 miles sitting on them. But.....I freely admit I'm not a Corvette fan.

Dan you were next on my list, I was going to suggest that he PM. you. If anyone knows it's you.

You could raise them, and when you redo them have more padding put in. You have all the holes drilled and everything, risers are not that hard to make, just have them tilted back a little to get the seat right or just keep putting them in and adjusting until you get a feel you like, don't worry about the hardness, that will be taken care of when they are recovered.

Irelands child I'm using some upholstered Barrett bomber seats in my '31 roadster. I raised them with a framework and some adjuster so they fit, height wise just right for me at 6'4". Not cheap by the time you get them plus add the adjusters and frame, but work which the Glide Engineering pair didn't as they were TOO high.

ONE OF EACH


BOTH


FRAME WORK BEING BUILT


I ended up by having to raise them a bit more with the 1" oak pieces you see so I could get my knees straighter. Painted and installed, work fine - for me

OneMoreTime Some guys have used a middle seat out of a van. Take your tape to the pick-a-part and see if one of those may work..If your seats are too low and otherwise ok then you can make some risers to go under the seat rails to bring them up to a more comfortable height..
