I have the mustang donor. But I not called my order in yet. Here is my problem. I'm 6'7" 275 lbs. Are there any owners that are tall and as big as me?

6'6" 220 lbs with a 40" inseam. I bolted the stock seats to the floor as far back as possible.I fit with no problems once you do some peddle mods. I work on alot of MG's Jags,Porche, Austins etc and they are a lot tighter fitting than my Cobra. I hate dragging my body out of an MGB, it's a real pain.

I am 6'2" and fit fine, but those few extra inches make a big difference. How long your legs are will make a big difference. I have a friend who is 6'10 and can't fit in my car. Best thing to do is find someone close to you and try sitting in it.

I'm 6'5", 205 with a 34" inseam. I have the standard Cobra seats on the floor all the way back and have the Wilwood pedal assembly which is supposed to give more leg room but I don't know that first hand.

I plan on trying the Kirkey low back seats which are supposed to add legroom and help my eyes stay below the windshield frame which is an minor issue but I still love driving it.

I am 6'2" and have the tilton pedals. They make a HUGE difference over the stock mustang brake setup. I can't imagine being that tall and enjoying the ride.

6'7" 320lbs, currently building mine. Using Kirkey seat bolted to the floor, willwood pedals, raising the sterring column.

I sat in some of the cars Mark Dourghety set up at FFR and fit fine.

6'-5", 220 here. Same as others. Raised 14"steering wheel, WIlwood pedals. FFMetals Footbox, Kirkeys mounted to the floor as far back as possible. I think one of your challenges will be getting in and out. A removable steering wheel would probably be a good idea.

6'-5", 205 made my own foot box mods. Using the stock low back seats but might chage to another seat after I get it on the road. The steering wheel will be removeable. Raised steering a couple of inches.
