246 Dino GT--enough space for tall guys?

I'm about 1meter 90 centimeters (app. 6'3 ?). Have only driven once a GTS Dino, without roof on and felt ok, but the drive was only 50 km's or so. How is the space in a late 246 GT for longer distance driving ? Illusionary for drivers my size ? Just wondering.

Present: 365 GTB/4, Scud
Past: 250 GTE, 250 PF (2), 275 GTBsn, 330 GTC, 456GT, 550, 360Stradale, 430Scuderia, F40, F50

I fitted my 6 4" frame in fine in my 1973 rhd Dino 246gt. Best position was with the seat not fully back which meant splayed legs but I soon adapted. This way I could lean back enough with plenty of headroom (a bit tight with a full face helmet when I did laps around Kyalami!) Longest drive in one go was over 200km from Johannesburg to Clarens and it was a great drive!

I'm 5'10" and when I ride in the passenger's seat of my friend 246 GT then my head rubs against the headliner.
Original seats in his GT.
