Child car seats

Post by NLevoir »

I wonder if anyone could help me with a question about child car seats. I am buying a 1967 convertible and want to take my grandchildren in the rear seat on short local journeys. The car will have inertia reel seatbelts in the rear. I know I can’t use isofix child seats, but has anyone any experience of using child car seats and are there any you would recommend?

Thank you very much. I was wondering if anyone had any particular child seat they would recommend as I have been told there is only 95cm of usable width across the rear seat.
I’m assuming, maybe I shouldn’t, that you can get two child car seats across the rear seat of a Minor convertible.
Many thanks

I think you can get 2x child seats across the back seat. Whilst I had the back seat out I found these old child seat anchorages. They were from Mothercare (long gong). 1980’s.

Thank you very much Stephen.
Much appreciated insight. I’ve found a car seat that can be supplied by Halfords that is 45cm wide so two of those should fit; I hope. My grandchildren are very excited about the car.
Thank you again.

You’re welcome and I am sure your grandchildren are quite rightly very excited! They will have tremendous fun. Mine is a 1969 convertible.
