Can't imagine doing that, particularly with a 6-speed...

I guess it depends how tall you are. No way I could see well enough without at seat, but I'm not very tall.

I have about 1/2" headroom with a glass top. This may be a viable option!

Not in the C4, but in another car I used a low foot step stool so I could move the car around at the shop parking lot with the seats removed w/o having to enlist a crew of 'pushers".

But! You may have struck upon a solution for those ppl over 6' tall. A modified seat - perhaps with the cushion planted on the floor, perhaps would solve the low roof issue for some, no? Hmmmm.....

I removed my bottom seat pad and folded a small blanket to fit int the bottom seat shell to get as low as i can without a different seat. Its the only way it feels right to drive the car. And I am not tall I am 5'10"

Would seem a little weird at first but if I ever remove my seats, I'll give it a try, lol.

nice idea. Under the bucket would be a great place to hide your beer.

My friend and I installed a Hurst shifter in his Barracuda in the very early '70s. Wanted to test it out before reinstalling the seats, so we drove it around the neighborhood. From the outside, it looked like the car was driving itself. Wouldn't you know, we got pulled over by a cop! He must have been a gearhead, though, since he just gave us a warning and followed us back to my friend's house.
