      There are some L shaped brackets that you access through the rumble seat area . Some have 2 or 3 screws that go through the seat riser and the L shaped brackets. They are quite hard to reach with the rumble cushions installed unless you are way more flexible than I am . I hope this makes sense . Norm

            Hi All,

            New member here and owner of a 1930 Model A Murray Sedan 4 door . Quick background, I was involved with Model A's as a youngster with my Father and Grandfather. Now I am 33 and my Grandfather has graciously enough gifted me an A. I am 6'3 and really had trouble driving the car at all (safely and comfortably). I was wondering if anyone could give me insight or a walkthrough on...

            Rumble seat riser placement
            by Mickey
            I'm having trouble figuring out the exact placement fore and aft for the rumble seat riser. Anyone with pictures, measurement or suggestions? The repro I have gives very little latitude left and right so centered will have to do.

            Rumble Seat Brackets
            by hardpanman
            Can someone check the OEM part numbers for the '28-'31 Model A rumble seat brackets? I have two with the following numbers; A-52533 and A52534 (no dash). See attached photos. Both have W5-1 to the right of the first set. I don't know if Ford would have made a mistake with the dash and I suspect these are reproductions, however all the repros I have seen carry the same part number, A-41543 for the...

            Rumble seat cushion anchoring.
            by greenhornet
            I think my rumble seat cushions are pretty good originals not a reproduction but the rumble seat floor is a fabrication. The car was restored in the fifties and sixties probably before reroductions were made for seat springs and floor. My question is this how does the rumble seat cushion on a '31 roadster fasten to the floor.I think I see holes in the repro floor platform and my seat spring has two...

            How do I get the Seat Back out without destroying attached upholstery ?
            The Seat Frame is all metal bottom , it is the late style.

            Under seat storage
            by Fomoco998
            My 30 coupe with rumble seat needs storage . Looking at under seat pan with recess but no one lists how deep for the 1930 just the 28/29 . Is this a good alternative ? Looking for any or all options.

            Is there some place where it shows an exploded view of the rumble seat area. Just trying to see what parts are needed to make a complete rumble seat. Thanks in advance. Hugh

            Rumble Seat Help
            by Ricconhan
            Tinkering with my Roadster while waiting for other parts. My rumble seat "back" cushion isn't fastening to the lid correctly. My lid has 2 slots towards the top on either side and the back cushion has 2 tabs that slip down into these slots, there is nothing on the bottom of the cushion to attach to the lid and subsequently everytime I close the lid the bottom of the back cushion rubs on...
