Default Re: Is there storage under the rear seat of a Tudor?

In my Tudor, I put a box under the rear floor on the passenger's side (LHS). It's not like I could use it as a garage but I surprise myself often at how much I put in there. I have seen Model As with the battery mounted on the firewall. I put another tool box there - about the size of a battery and put lots more stuff in it. I have all the tool space I need.

Interestingly this was my first time looking at a Tudor (or any closed car). Is there storage under the driver's and passenger's (front) seats also?

I did pivot the driver's seat in order to slide into the rear seat (what a unique experience when all I'm familiar with is Rumble City), but I didn't notice any storage space.

Not like the tray under the seat of my Cabriolet. (Hey look, I found some bullets...)

I have a Tudor I use the space under the back seat. I carry carb, distributor and a belt. The question I have has anybody installed the extra storage boxes that fits into the rear floor boards ? That the vendors sell.

In Dad's 29 Tudor we installed a Model A Basement which is a sheet metal box under the floor boards between the front and rear seats. He carries a lot of stuff in there, and still has room for more. The boxes straddle the torque tube with plenty of clearence

Have any of you ever installed a Tudor Basement? Snyder's 2015 catalog shows one on page A-185. I always thought they looked neat but my car is a TS.

700rpm, Post #7: "What do you do when you have to crank your engine?"
________________________________________________
For the purpose of 'Timing', you can use a special tool that turns the crankshaft - rotating it in either direction. You do this from the engine compartment so it is in the right location for a one-man timing operation. MacsAutoParts has this tool ("Timing Wrench" part # 28-56532-2) on page 309 of their 2014 catalog, or find it online; MacsAutoParts.com. Most likely other venders may carry it as well.

For the purpose of getting your car started, without a crank (access hole blocked by tool box) - either park on a hill, or make sure there are a few people around who would like to 'inter-act with a living-history' automotive experience. i.e. - three guys pushing, while you 'pop' the clutch.
