Looking to buy a 5k or 200 and I need to know if my 4'9" wife can reach the pedals. How far forward do the seats go? If anyone can measure the distance between the pedals and the front of the driver's seat all the way forward, I would appreciate it. I have an 88 90Q and she can just reach the pedals with the manual comfort seats, although I'm not sure the clutch pedal is getting all the way to the floor.

I'm 5'7" and my '87 will put my knees all the way up in the lower dash and my head on the ceiling.
At 4'9", keep away from airbag equipped models, as she will be very close to the steering wheel. A 1988 5k/5kq/5ktq would be pretty good if it has the power seats (height adjust).

An '87 5k may be possible(not close enough for testing yet)- not sure about the what seats it has. My 90Q has manual height adjustment, so I expect the 5k would.
Thanks for the response.

My old '84 5000S had manual seats. The driver's seat was more adjustable than the passenger's. IIRC the driver's seat could be adjusted fore/aft and up/down. The rake of the seat back was adjustable, also.

manual seats in my 91 100 are adjustable for rake (i.e. - adjust height of rear of seat as a whole).
