I thought I would share the rumble seat I made for my 26 Roadster. My car was restored in the mid 1960s and I really didn't want to alter it. The seat is solidly fastened with out drilling one hole in the car. I removed the trunk lid support. Trunk lid hinges have easy remove pins installed so trunk lid can be removed in less than a minute. Rumble seat folds down so trunk is still usable. Floor is supported with 1" oak on under side. Hopefully I manage to attach a few pictures.

Cool :-) For kids up to a certain age?
Do you have bumpers on the car to step on?

Thanks guys. I do have bumpers that can be used as steps. Kids as young as you can trust to stay seated. My wife who is 5'7" and one grand child fit fine. The seat slightly extends out of trunk so folded down roof isn't right in there laps. Grand kids love it.

Spencer that roomy rumble seat will be awesome. In my case there is no way for me to match the 50 year old paint patina. Please share future pictures.
I wish this sight would notify us when someone responds. I am not good about checking the forum regularly.

Do you just remove the trunk lid?

Yes, to make it quick and easy I have removed the lid support that holds the lid open. The 2 pins in the hinges I removed and replaced with simple Hitch Pins. With an extra hand the lid can be removed in seconds.
