Small Truck Big Body
« on: October 12, 2020, 09:25:10 PM »
Hey all -- Rebuilding a '73 C20, but not sure how I can make the interior bigger.  I thought about moving the seat back a couple inches, but that doesn't seem like that's going to make that much of a difference.  Thoughts?  Thanks.

Welcome Cubs fan!  The only way you can feel more room is to change the seat to a 1990-1991 Suburban bench.  You do gain a few inches in leg room because the seat back is much thinner.  That would be easiest shy of going aftermarket.

Thanks Zieg!  I'll look into that option.

G-van steering column is shorter giving you more room.
