Projects Best Seat for 31 Roadster

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by indomwe, Nov 24, 2016.

  1. trying to figure out what the best seat to use for my 31 roadster build is??
    I have a flat floor in the roadster, not the stock seat riser but could still put that in, my concern with the stock seat is a person seems to sit fairly high and i would like to sit a bot lower.

    I want to keep a stock seat look, its a traditional type build

    I had the stock seat riser in my 30 roadster and made the seat bottom and back to fit me. Used plywood , upholstery webbing and foam.

    I have a seat out of a 80s-90's Chrysler minivan. It the little short seat behind the driver. I actually found the seat setting on the side of the road. I just had it reupholstered and it fits perfect in my 28 Model A PU. I could sent dimensions and pictures if interested. I have it mounted on the stock seat riser with hinges so I could have some storage. Works great for a small tool box,couple qts of oil and so forth.

    My Pops used the original riser and I made a plywood bottom with webbing. The trim guy made the back after my dad sat in it so it fits him just right. This is the only picture I have that shows a bit of the back. IMG_1119.JPG
