There are some very good photos of people's Coupe projects on this forum. If you do a word search on "Coupe" and wade through them you will find dozens of them. They were most helpful when I re-wooded my coupe.

Mark, I just took some pictures of the seating area of a 1919 rewooded coupe. (I think it is 1919) I do not have the seat springs for the car.

Later 1923, 1924 with the doors opening at the rear and the fuel tank under the seat look a lot different.

Mark -- It shouldn't matter much if it's a '19 thru '23. Other than the window operating mechanisms and provision for the electrical equipment, they are basically the same bodies. Other forum members might know of some other small differences.

Mark, the 1919 car that has the new wood installed was in bad shape. The seat springs that were in the car were bare. I do not think they used a wood frame on the back side???? I think the bottom one piece spring had upholstery and just set on that wood frame. The one piece spring back rest was done the same way and hung on that wood frame you see in the pictures.
The last two pictures I posted is a 1923 or 24 car with the fuel tank under the seat and the doors are not suicide type. Those have wood on the bottom side of the seats and two seats not one long seat. (Back rest is still a single spring)
Mike 1919 has a lot of wood in the doors and not much sheet metal. The later ones used very little wood. Also the seat riser is metal in the later coupes. Trunk is part of the body on the later ones and the earlier ones were separate from the main body. Cowl vents were also used on the later coupes just to mention a few things.

Mark, I went out and looked at the seats again and decided that they must of had a wood frame on the back side as there is not enough center support on that wood frame to keep the springs from sinking in the center with no support. My springs were bare when I got the car.
Maybe someone has a complete car and can add some information on the seats.

Yes. WARNING: again, this may not be as accurate as an original.









The seat back slides in an I put a screw on each side to keep it in place.
