  • 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.
                        You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

                            "P.O." included matching side blinds. What is the exact placement?

                            I would like to replace -- economical sources?

                            Advice on seat belts: Brands you like etc. Links on good methods of installation... I've put this off too long so looking for advice... My understanding is a lapbelt is about all that somewhat workable.

                            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....

                            I just got the above car and it has the rear cushion and back rest wood & springs, but only the front cushion. Can anyone help me with pictures or anything about how the front seat is supposed to be? It has the 4 stud adjustment slides.

                            First post from this new owner. Just purchased a wonderful 1929 Tudor. I’m on the large side and if I try to right foot the brake, the shift lever prevents it. I’m going to adjust the seat also but wondered if the shifter can be repositioned more inline with the car and not pointing at a 40 deg angle directly at my leg, Thanks

                            I just received my recovered pullstraps and shade tassels from Kim at Antique Auto Hardware. I sent Kim my original pullstraps and some wooden shade tassel knobs I had turned. The pullstraps in my L B interior kit were not even close. Here are pictures of the L B pullstraps installed in my 31 Victoria, my original pullstraps, the wooden tassel knobs and Kim's finished product.

                            Are there seat cover patterns available for a DIY ER to sew his own ? I have a quote to have front seat cover made and shipped to Canada from recommended U.S. company . With Canadian dollar conversion $1400. is a little over budget . just wondering if patterns were available .

                            by Tom Wesenberg
                            In 2014 our Model A club had a demonstration put on by Elizabeth of Classtique Upholstery, showing how to reupholster a Tudor rear seat.
                            Elizabeth sure does nice work, and makes it look easy. Too bad I didn't have a video camera for this job. Notice the nice frame Elizabeth made to compress the seat springs while doing the upholstery work. The last picture shows the bead on the rear of the seat,...

                            Active fathers day for the 29 Tudor. Had a great time cruising with the grandkids and family. So I look yesterday and there is a tear in the passenger seat back edge that lines up perfectly with the parking brake!!! Damn it !!!!! I'm supposed to be the guardian of this beautifully restored piece of history and my first outing with family and its already less perfect then when I bought it! I'm guessing...
