  • Passenger side seat adjustment for 31 Victoria?

    I just bought a 31 Victoria with dual sidemounts. The Wife is having an awful time getting in and out of the passenger side. Does anybody sell an adaptor or kit so you can move the seat back some? Just a few inches would help but more would be better. Thanks, Smitty

    The better venders have just such a thing. Replaces the front mounts.

        Mitch, I saw those, but I'm not sure they will work on a Vickie. I sent an email to the Technical Director of the Victoria Assn & asked him if he could point me in the right direction. How much extra room did those adjustors give you on your Tudors? Thanks, Smitty

          6" plus you can tilt the front of the seat up which adds for extra leg space. Most folks are against them because of the price but for me they look good and function correctly

          I don't think these will work in your vicky.

            Since I am not sure which style of front seat pivot/mount you have, these move the seat back about 4".

                Probably not, and now that I see the picture it is different than the earlier ones. Good Luck

                PS. Hey wait! From the looks of that mount, I would like to know if the sides are separate parts or one single mount bolted to the floor?
                See, if they are 2 separate mounts, you may be able to turn it around which would move the seat back. I would like to see the floor and mount on it with the seat off. After all, I have been called McGiver. I believe where there is a will, there is a way. MORE PICs

                  I have the adjusters like Mitch's on the drivers side and they don't work well for me. I have to hunch down to see under the visor, when my son was driving and I was in the passenger side, it was refreshing to see without being hunched over :-)

                    You could use this bracket sold by the vendors that is used to adjust the drivers seat on a Victoria. You may have to move the rear center support bracket.

                      These pictures of my 31 Victoria brackets might help. The bracket at the rear center is what the inside rear seat support sits on.

                        Thanks Art,

                        From the looks of it, and the one in the first pic right item, if you just turn the brackets around you should be able to move the seat back at least 2".

                        I don't think it is beyond the realm of possibilities to even make a new bracket with the hole back farther from the stock.

                        But if it were me, I'd just swap the bracket around and see if that is enough for mama to enter and exit easier.

                        PS. While you have the brackets out, do a paper trace of both sides so you can look around for a piece of angle iron to make new relocating set without needing to remove the seat. Makes it a lot less stressful having one already and painted to plop back in. You could even adjust the cushion angle for a bit more comfort by just raising the pivot hole.

                            by Soapy
                            I put the driver side front seat in my early 1932 standard tudor project last week and learned that I need more space behind the wheel. There appear to be several options. The later 1931 deluxe models had an adjustable track on the driver side seat. I don't know if any used ones are available, but Bert's (seat slider kit $79.00) and Bratton's (3 stud slide track $149.00) seem to offer a similar solution...

                            Has anyone done any Seat Covering research in the past for commercial Tudor seats? I received some of my Lebaron Bonney interior order before their bankruptcy and although there were two sets of seat covers for my 31 Deluxe Delivery, they are clearly not Black/Brown Cobra Cross Grain material. I want to get Mike from Classtique started on new covers, but he asked if I could verify the number of...

                            While looking at my floor pan rust issues, I noticed some things about the seat base and riser that I'd like to ask about.

                            There are metal tabs on the inside front edge of the seat base, and what I'm calling clips on the front edge of the seat riser. I have not been able to find mention of these, nor a part number for the clips on the seat riser to help in determining their purpose....

                            1929 Tudor and recently re-upholstered seats with Classtiqe kit. Nothing wrong with the kit, but the seats are really uncomfortable. Particularly for my wife, but really also for me. We are both pushing 70-ish in age, and both of us are average to small in height and weight. We had great hopes that the new upholstery would help, and we replaced a couple broken coil springs with new ones from Snyders....

                            Well, since I posted the pictures in the Morning thread I thought this would be a better place to share this.

                            Over the last couple of weeks I have been having some new seat covers made for Wheezer since the seat covers that came over the original upholstery was beginning to seriously break down due to my daily usage.

                            Well, here are the pictures promised of some of the original
