G'day,

mate is scoring a 1995 two door Troopie but says the original owner does not have the second row of seats that were fitted. (Did tudors come with these anyway?)
Does anyone know of anywhere in Sydney where he might find some?

Hi Bushfix
I have a set of the bench seats that go down each side of the rear of a 2 door HZJ75 Troopie, March '97 build that are surplus to needs.
I thought that the only Troopie with the second seat row parallel to the front seats had a 3rd door on the passenger's side behind the front door?
Regards

John

Troopies didn't come from the factory with 3 doors, all of these are aftermarket conversions. The only place I can think of to get a second row of seats is from a wrecker.

Thanks guys,

yeah I have (eventually) confirmed with Tojo that the tudors only had three or eleven seater options. I have found a fella in Girraween who can add a second row, accessible via the front. It's about $850.

Hi Bushfix

Sounds like we are trying to do the same thing - I'm also after a second (forward facing) seat. I've found Van Extras in North Paramatta (16 Barney St; 96834111) who say they make seat to order - costs around $1,000 including seat belts. They provide certificate and ten you have to get a blue slip (from the RTA I guess). They were the cheapest - but also try Auto Seat Conversions (Hornsby) www.autoseats.com.au.

Van Extras must be near to your place in Girraween but yours sound cheaper? Can you pass me the details of the place in Girraween?

Cheers

Mark

Troopy came/comes in the following configurations - 3 seat (all front), 5 seat (RV with front buckets, rear 3 seat bench across vehicle) and 11 seat (3 front, and two rows of benches lengthways). We may even have had a couple of Hybrids come through that were six seaters without the cloth seats of the RV, but all in vinyl (used to find this at the end of a series run would get a few odd vehicles through). At least here in QLD each vehicle came with compliance plate of original configuration and was a very difficult job to get it changed to another (we used to buy 3 seaters and at times wanted to fit extra seats). You must use approved seatbelts, bolts etc etc and manufacturer would never give approval for upgrade.

You may find rear seat from MWB/Bundera fits the bill, but there definately is a dedicated Troopy seat that suits - not sure if floor blanks are there in each model. Our MWB's used to come with 3/4 front bench that rotated inwards and folded forwards to allow access to rear seats. Think current RV is similar.

thanks for that age,.

i forgot to get him to check the compliance plate for original config, good point. It's got a false floor so checking there should also tell the story. lcool might be another avenue to find out what's available.

Like age says, the the Troopie RV models came with either 6 seat (early models from about 1993) or 5 seat (late models only).

The 6-seater RV models also came with a different passengers side front seat, which would move forward and swivel a bit, enabling better rear access (still a climb though).

The factory second row seat folds down nicely, and if you could source that from a wreckers, it may be a better fitting option than some of the aftermarket ones.
