LWB Ulster rep near High Barnet, Herts
#1
I have a gentleman who is considering a LWB Ulster, but he is 6' 4" and would like to just sit in a LWB Ulster to see if he actually fits. He is based in High Barnet.
I know that with a Rod Yates body, Rod can cut the rear of the cockpit further back, but it would good to see if it's possible to fit in a normal LWB with maybe the seat taken out which would give a similar feel.
Many thanks in advance.

A LWB cockpit is already an enormous compromise in the original design. If he finds the LWB problematic, find a Speedex as Jem Marsh was very tall and designed the 750 with that in mind. A more vintage design than the Ulsteroid too.

A leading VSCC trials driver has had a SWB Ulster body made recently.  The cockpit was altered to suit.   He is a seriously big chap so if he can fit in, anyone can.   Some Forumists will know who he is!

Mick Fleetwood manages to fit in a box saloon and drives it regularly
Buy an Austin 7 they said, It's easy to work on they said !

It's been trialled a small amount by his Daughter and Dennis Bingham's done the Welsh these last two years in it but he's keen on trying Class 1 in 2021. You won't miss it. It's the brightest of bright orange. Calls it 'Jaffa'. Big Grin

I am 6'2" and happily managed to fit into my SWB Ulsteroid for 28 years clocking up nay committing miles per year, without suffering anything more than normal 'Austin Seven bum'.
