In Search Of Early '70s Strolee Classic Car Seat


Lisa Lietsch

Would look pretty much like this one from the 1971 Montgomery Wards catalog:


This exact one would be great to find, but the one I really have my heart set on finding is a step up from this one. A step up because it had both upright and reclining positions and the seat and backrest pads were contoured instead of being flat on top. The center of the seat and back has simulated horizontal pleating, vacuum formed into the vinyl. Reminds me of my beloved 1969 Z28 Camaro upholstery from many years ago.:eek:

Any color would do. I remember doing car snooping back in the day and seeing this seat model in black, brown, gold, and even white vinyl. Light pitting in the chrome frame is OK, but I'd like the upholstery to be in G to VG condition with no splits or tears in the vinyl. Please keep an eye out for me if you frequent moving/garage/yard sales, or flea markets.

Perhaps some of you or your siblings had this seat to use back then and it's still stashed away in attic, garage, basement, or storage shed. At least if your parents hang onto nearly everything and just store it away, like I did with our children's crib, stroller, and highchair.;) I'd certainly appreciate anyone checking to see if their folks might still have it. If you could possibly send a photo of the seat it would be great, so that I can verify it's the exact one I want to purchase.

I'm willing to offer a fair price plus pay for all shipping. Anyone here who knows me from the StrollerSwap board would without a doubt vouch that I'm a trustworthy person of integrity, especially when buying or selling with another member, and I never back out of a transaction once I commit to buy or sell.

Thanks in advance for your help! I figure if anyone can locate this classic seat for me, you'd all be the ones to do it. Enjoying my association with this terrific group very much! :)

I actually have the one you are talking about but I would only consider a trade for a strolee wee car seat. I want one of those for my mustang.
