I have a 34 inseam and 6 1''.
Except the back seat. I rode in the rear seat of one for a day trip and never could understand why Ford took a Tudor and took away the rear seat leg room to make the Victoria.
It sure is amazing how many body styles the Model A came in.

I am 6'3" and am very uncomfortable in a 29 Tudor. Like others have mentioned, the Tudor has plenty of room to alter the seat but I would not plan on fitting in there in the stock setup. My father has one and I have driven it but was really surprised how cramped it was. There is a ton of room in the back, so moving the seat makes a lot of sense!

I dunno, I have a '31 pickup with a 4" recesses firewall and, while it is certainly cramped, I can drive it OK. Took it on a 2000 KM hotrod tour this summer. I also have a '28 tudor with a 4" chop AND 4" recessed firewall but have the seat lowered and moved back a fair bit but it's fine. I'm rebuilding a '31 deluxe delivery now and before tearing it down, I sat in it and checked it out for comfort. Was disappointed to find that I can't move the seat back but find it rather comfortable with the stock firewall. So much so that I am leaving it standard. The other 2 are automatics as it would be near impossible for me to work a clutch with the setback firewall. The biggest nuisance for me is getting my feet between the seat and door post when entering and exiting the vehicle. I'm 6'2" 250 lbs.
