Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: 1926 Coupe Seat parts missing
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Donald G Victory on Saturday, December 07, 2013 - 01:20 pm:

I am restoring a 1926 Coupe and some of the parts for the original seat bottom and back are missing. I do have what appears to be the spring frames, but all of the wood parts are missing. I can buy some of the missing wood, but I enjoy the woodworking as much as the car restoration. Is there any drawings or diagrams of the coupe seat wood parts? Or does anyone have pictures? May also need some help on how the curved metal piece in back fits together with seat back wood parts. Any help appreciated.

Here is a shot of a '26 Coupe's bottom seat frame. I'm in the process of restoring this one.

This is the back seat framework, sorry the pictures aren't the best.

The bottom picture is a end view...

This is the back seat shelf.

Just realized that the flat board (shelf)is not the original wood and may not be the original design. I will have to do some research...

Lorenzo, on this coupe there is a latch and bracket to hold the seat to the cross member. It is similar to the rear seat of the fordors. Did yours have the same bracket?

Lorenzo, the upper right picture shows a recessed bracket in the center of it. This car had that male end you show that slides into the female bracket on the cross brace. I'm just guessing but once the frame is upholstered the seat sets on the face of the cross brace?

Yep, that explains why Fordwood shows wood pieces this car doesn't have. I guess the author of this thread needs to see which one he has. Good job Lorenzo !!

Lorenzo, thanks for the link. I do have the metal shelf piece, and needed to know how this was installed. I tried placing it in place a number of ways, but it did not look quite right. I see now that the gaps on the sides are there so the side panels can slip in and complete the back. I will still need the 712 wood pieces as shown on the fordwood picture, but no need for the 714 piece. I will try and take pictures as I get it put together.
