Traveller rear seats

Postby Slingers0710 » Tue Sep 16, 2014 8:55 am

Hiya
Looking on the internet, there appear to be two different types of Morris Traveller rear seat squabs. The first type is flat underneath, whilst the second has a shaped wooden baton with steel pins and a cut out for transmission tunnel. My guess is that the baton is required in order to provide support to along the centreline and those I have seen without it are incomplete.

Can anyone confirm that the baton should form part of the Traveller's rear seat squab?

If so, does that baton also fit into the saloon or is it supported differently?

I'm asking all this because I have been led to understand that the Ford Ka rear seat squab will fit in the back of a saloon if attached to the wooden base of a Traveller rear seat.

The main question is do I just need the flat wooden base or whether I also need the shaped baton too?

Sorry about the waffle hope that makes sense.

it does..

why not just cut a piece of wood to shape rather than butcher a traveller seat (might be cheaper).. if you are local to me you are more than welcome to come over and make a template from my traveller seat.

i can not see the baton being required because it is for the two pins that lock the back rest in place when front seat is folded forward.
