Speaking with Joe A he mentioned that Murray bodies supplied bodies to both Reo and Ford . I looked up Mac's Ford parts and looked at their 1931 parts for the seat hardware . They are a perfect match for the parts that are on John P car seat . Going with the pictures that Victor took and shared with the group .
i drove from Toronto to New York to their store . To find out about their door checks for suicide doors . They do not know what part goes where . You need to have a part number . I am trying to find those numbers now and will pass on the information to everyone .
One other point about Mac's . You can not even hold the product in your hand unless you pay for it ahead of time . If it does not match you can return it . This without leaving their store . Funny set up .

I am going to start posting the parts I need at Mac's . A.J. or Victor if you want to organize these parts numbers with pictures feel free to jump in .
32-23474-1 Rubber Bumpers to support the windows when in down position . From what I can tell 2 on each back widow and the same on the front . 8 in total . Mine have turned to stone in my Victoria .
28-22706-1 Domed Shaped Bumper by hinge . ! each side of car . The original is 1 1/4 inches wide and a little thicker . Replacement is 1 wide . Unless a better one comes along this is it .
28-23424-1 Ratchet for driver front seat . There is a glide that goes with this part but I can not find it . It goes beside the ratchet on the seat to keep the seat level . Behind this on the bottom of the seat goes fixed rollers . I can not find them .
28-23760 Passenger Seat Tilt or Swivel part .
23442-1 Passenger Seat Cup that the back of the seat rest on . Check heights as they list 2 sizes . This is the taller one . It looks like Victor's picture .

Yes these are Mac's numbers I am posting . I will try to enter any information I can about the parts . As I require them for my car . There is no dimensions given on Mac's parts . Does anyone have a Ford parts book with some sort of measurements .

harley: My attempt at creating a thread with an attachment of the Royale stationary does not seem to allow the attachment to open for view. What did I not do correctly? This is my first time on a forum so it is all new to me. (Harley)
