Hey ya

Just wondering if anyone would know if VN/VP wagons (or other models) came out with a bench seat and column change auto? We're kinda in a bind with kid no. 4 on the way, and the VK, VN or the VP won't fit 4 kids plus me and the Mrs. I know that Ffff..... Fffo.. (u know where this is going) came out with them, but am trying to avoid that path unless I absolutely have too.. and NO MPV's AND VANS!!!

lol.. Cheers

what about dickie seats instead? Some people I knew had a VN wagon with the dickie seats in the back, means you lose boot room, but hey fit all them darn kids in!

I'm pretty sure they would have, if you could get the utes and the six seater sedans with bench seat and column shift it would have been available on a wagon as well, not sure how common it would have been though

cant find one on google. But the 80's era Volvos came with them standard lol

basically its a set of seats that bolt down & face backwards against the rear seats. Kids have to be about 5yrs old to use them & prob only until age 12 I would say. they have seat belts etc...

VN Wagon
Holden sold one as an option. It seats two. A number of other companies made them. These range from cheap to expensive. Years ago we bought a Take-Three (I think they have changed names) for our VN. It holds three (obviously) and was trimmed in matching fabric as the interior of the car. The seats was shaped as well. The cheaper one are like planks. All need to meet ADR. Most face forward. There is usually an ad for them in the back of the NRMA magazine.

Safety is always a concern but when you have 5 children the options are limited.
