If anyone has a picture of a bare one, I know of a couple of frames that friends have. I’m not sure if they fold or if the whole seat flips

the seat back and seat cushion are two pieces. The back folds down and then the seat flips to the front of the car. I have one, but it's going in my center door.

Below are some pictures of a passenger seat from Don Booth's 1923 Centerdoor. I should have done this when I posted the ad. I don't know what, if any changes were made between 1915 and 1923. I could not find any pictures of a seat frame without upholstery. The folding single leg at the rear of the seat is a distinctive feature.

Thanks John, I’m forwarding to two friends who have bare seat frames. The rest is up to them. T

Thanks guys I appreciate all this help. Don pictures of the legs would be great if you have time. Do you know if the front legs are just screwed to a wood seat base or are they part of the frame?
Thank you,
John

Tim, Joe and Hank thank you for your help.
I was told one time that because of the tight fit getting in and out of the front of a centerdoor as Ma and Pa got older and put on more weight the passengers seat went the door and mom sat in the back seat and dad was able to get behind the steering wheel. I have know idea if that is true or not.

I've seen pictures where both seat bottoms were restored the same framing wise However, my passenger seat bottom was just a flat piece of wood with the spring attached to it with the legs bolted to the bottom.

Here's how mine looked, but without the carpet bottom. PIC BORROWED FROM NET

John,
Don’t have a seat frame (used to) but do have rear backrest frame and spring for early ‘20’s C’door that I would give you for just the shipping. I was going to give to Don Boothe for his ‘16 c’door restoration but he is making his own. Let me know I have no use for it. John Sundstrom

I THINK I HAVE SEAT ONLY it is missing the hair pin and bone as I call it.
The metal parts I think it also comes with mice.
