Thank you REDOVAL and shenrie for the pics and info. Super helpful information.

Great real world example Viva. That is my intended build, and another key reason for wondering if it makes sense for the driver's side.

Re: Econoline Swivel Seat Bases - Who wants them??

had the little missy demonstrate how to turn drivers side swivel. i figured shes a lot easier on the eyes than i am.



measurements are as follows. from console to shifter is roughly 5.5-6" back from our center console. note our van is an 03 and has a stock console. the shifter sits roughly 10" from the drivers seat bolts. that is, if you drew a line from the bolt in front to the bolt in back and measured from that line. our shifter also seems to be angled towards the drivers seat as well.

I am in for a passenger side on an 04 whenever you get a new order in.

Thanks,

I would certainly be interested in a passenger side swivel.

Re: Econoline Swivel Seat Bases - Who wants them??

Looks like we are getting close to enough people interested in a second Groups Buy for the seat Bases. Let's get the list started. Should I start a separate thread for the 2nd GB ?

Thxs!

You can put me down for both a driver and passenger swivel.

Thx,
