Default Height from ground to seat?

I am going to drive a cruiser in a few days. I am now in a grand prix , it is very low to the ground. I am 5'1 and was wondering if anyone could tell me the measurments from the ground to the seat in the cruiser. I am very excited about it and hope it will work for me. thank you for any help I can get.

Even if we gave you some measurements, you will know "FOR SURE" in a few days.

Perhaps a point of reference will work better than actual measurements.

When I pull up to a drive up ATM, I'm at just the right level to be able to use the machine without stretching or straining. This is also true for the number pad/ entry code gizmo that we have at work to make the gate open.

When I'm driving my Ram 1500 I'm too high, and need to stretch a good bit down in order to reach anything, as a result I usually just get out and take care of business that way. The reverse is true for my Honda CR-Z, it's too low, and it's a bit of a stretch to reach everything, so I tend to get out and take care of business when driving that car too. The PT is just the right height.

hope this helps

Exco

I may be wrong about what you are asking but my mother-in-law is 5' 1" and she always says it's easier to get in and out of my PT then her car that sits much lower. I think I read GT sits an inch lower. Seat and steering wheel are adjustable.

Ya my seat adjusts up and down as well as forward and back. should not be a problem.
