Looking to test fit a Super Seven in the Phoenix area.


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

After following this group for almost a year, My Model T is feeling a little slow in comparison (a lot slower! I max out around 40 mph, a true Captain Slow). Is there anybody in the Phoenix, Arizona area that might be willing to let me sit in their 7? I'm 6'2", 185 lbs and want to get a feel for how I might fit.

 

I'm researching mostly Birkins or Stalkers. I like the Birkin because it seems like a good replica in looks and fit/finish. I like the Stalker because of the "Buy American" aspect, not to mention the V8. I'm probably avoiding the Caterham because of the extra cost premium over the other two. I'm fairly handy with mechanics and look forward to building it myself, rather than pre-built used.

 

I understand the Birkin is less roomy than the Stalker, but I'm more concerned about height. I used to drive around in a Triumph Spitfire and either had to stretch up to look over the top of the windscreen, or slouch to see under it. Seems like most taller folks have had good luck with lowering the seats and/or customizing a taller rollbar (Which I assume would make the all-weather gear useless).

 

Thanks,

 

Brett
