Default 28 sedan....moving my seat back

Anyone have brackets for sale or anything that will move my seat back about 6 inches? I dont want to chop or drill on the car if possible.

I know Mike's sells some that move it back 1.5" but I need more.

I am 6, 1

Any help would be appreciated

You could make some that hook into the stock mounting points.

If you have a bench seat (assuming its a Fordor Sedan) like me, you can add some washers or a 1/4" wood spacer between the seat rails and the fixed support track. Since the track is sloping back, this will raise it up to allow it to move back further until the seat hits the floor. I also removed the seat adjusting knob entirely, otherwise it hits the front of the seat base. Hope that's clear.

You could also tie off a coil or two in the seat springs to lower the seat some.
