Thread: Are you 6' 4"

  1. Are you 6' 4"

    Before I start banging on manufacturers doors regarding by ability to squeeze into one of their masterpieces, can any of you guys share your own experiences.

    Which kits cater for lankies ? How much adjustment is there - and how easy it is to alter... because the missus is a leprechaun

    6ft 3ins and the Crendon has room to spare. And the runners are still on the seats so they can be slid forwards for smaller folk.

    Latest chassis has even more room.
    Crendon has left the building................bright yellow Stag has landed.

    Not quite 6'4", but near enough 6'5" and I fit in my GD. I've got the adjustable pedal box so my wife "can" drive it too.
    Edit just thought I'd add I've got the MK4 body which is slightly deeper for more room

    Morning,

    We have a number of 6ft 5" customers, recently sold a Demonstrator with our new style seats and pedal box, he was 6ft 5" with long legs and fitted with ample knee room to the dash area. Not so good for me test driving at 5ft 7 1/2. (the half is important lol)

    That'd be my fault was searching for GD adjustable pedal box posts and saw this one. I'd not twigged it was so old.
