  1. I'm not aware of any stickers used on this seat? Nothing was on the original and as it is covered with mohair no sticker would stay on it? Anyway if you provide a picture of what you have I will certainly look at it. Regards
  2. Only three left and no more will be made.
  3. To update I have three pieces remaining. I only had a small batch made to get the ones I needed so I won't be getting any more done.
  4. Took some doing but I finished the front seat frame assembly for my 1929 Chevrolet Sedan.
  5. I needed three but had to get 10 done for the price break. I have six extra available if anyone needs to replace their corroded, damaged or missing plate. These were nailed to the floor sill by the front seat on the passenger side. Used on all GM Canada production from at least 1929 to 1931. I have been informed that the Regina plant opened in 1928 so expect this is suitable for 1928 at the earliest. I believe was used later but have not confirmed yet ( haven't seen an actual plate from later years). $120 US plus shipping cost.
  6. I had a small batch of these made for my own cars. Used on all Canadian production from 1928 (the Regina plant opened that year I believe) to at least 1932. I have confirmed used from 1929 to 31 inclusive. Haven't seen outside that window yet. The couple of extras I have are selling at $120 US each plus cost to ship.
  7. I had a small batch of these made for my own cars. Used on all Canadian production from about 1928 (I believe the Regina plant opened in 1928) to at least 1932. I have confirmed used from 1929 to 31 inclusive. Haven't seen outside that window yet. The couple of extras I have are selling at $120 US each plus cost to ship.
  8. I have a few extra new ones available from a batch I had made for my Canadian built Chevrolets. I expect these were used on all GM Canada production. Acid etched on brass like original (picture shows original used to reproduce).
  9. The location you mention makes more sense. My sill was powder so exact location could not be determined. Could you post a picture showing it's location on your Pontiac? Regards.
  10. Mine is a 1929 Chevrolet and I seen one on a 1931 Chevrolet. I would hazard it was used on all production including La Salle and Cadillac as well as Oakland and Marquette. There were only 5515 Pontiacs built in all of Canada in 1930. Here is my original next to a new one. The plastic protector is still on it so it looks a little odd.
  11. I had some made for my own cars and have a few left over. Used for sure from 1929 to 1931 but probably back as far as 1926 and as late as 1932. These were nailed to the floor sill ahead of the drivers seat on the passenger side as the car rolled off the line and had model, serial number and engine number stamped onto it. Etched brass as original. $120.00 US plus shipping cost.
  12. Hello all. Looking to confirm if the front seat assembly used in 1929 to 1931 Buicks matches this one? This can be equipped with ashtray mount of not. Regards.
  13. Hello all. I am looking to confirm if this seat assembly is the same as used in any of the stated years of Oldsmobile sedans. I suspect at least 1929 and 1930 with or without ashtray mount. Thank you.
  14. All good info. For the most part I have found cars that did not have a seat back mounted ash tray had them on the sides of the back seat and vice versa. Chev did this in 1931 and many other years. My 1929 Chevrolet had one ashtray on the back of the front seat for rear passengers. No tray in front. So far aside from the ash tray differences (and material choice for upholstery) it looks like Fisher used the same front seat frame in Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile and possibly Buick sedans from 1929 to 1931. All these years used the same adjuster mechanism. I've completed a new frame for my 1929 and as I have patterns I wanted to know what other models this could be used in in case anyone ever needed one. I will be building a new assembly for my 1929 Cabriolet and it looks like the same was used for Cabriolet/coupe for 29 to 31 as well.
  15. Volume. More Chevs then Pontiacs. The quality was mostly in the mechanicals. Both had Fisher bodies so not much difference there.
  16. Thank you gentlemen. Good information to know. This one is for a 1929 Chevrolet Sedan. Surprising that the lower priced Chev had an ash tray as standard. Similar seat assembly can be built without ashtray mount for Pontiac. Looking at Olds for 1929 I believe the same assembly was used. I guess Fisher did a little cross compatibility and used different upholsterydepending on where the seat was going. I wonder now about Buick.
  17. So where was the ashtray or did they have one?
  18. The opening is 31" by 11 1/8" approx. Here is a picture of the seat adjuster. This is a 1929 Chevrolet seat and both Pontiac and Chev used same interior handles in 1929. If your Pontiac has ashtrays on either side of the back seat then there wouldn't be one in the back of the front seat. Thanks for your reply.
  19. It's all discussed on the VCCA chat site.
  20. Looking to confirm that the front seat for 1929 and maybe 1930 Pontiac four door cars are the same as this GM seat.
  21. Apparently SMS just did buy the assets. I guess the material will be available but not sure if they will provide interiors.
  22. I am asking for a source of material. Thank you.
  23. Members 9 213 posts Report post Posted just now So does anyone know of a possible source for the steel channel used on the perimeter of coil spring car seat assemblies? There are two types I am looking for. One is a steel channel with a wire formed into it and the second is just a steel channel. The former is typically used for seat bases and the latter for back seat assemblies.
