Does anyone have a drawing or dimensions of the wooden toolbox for a speedster. I am looking for the slanted one if possible but the straight sided one would work. I know I could make it whatever I want but a set of drawing would help.
I built mine and it is slanted. You make it fit the area it is going in. Sorry I don't have any photos.
This is mine. Will need to get measurements tomorrow. Pretty much just a wooden box with a lid. It does have a false floor to accomidate the rear spring.
If you have an original, you may try to build the body to make it work. Otherwise, build a nice, simple box to fit the space you have. Don't build it too big though. It may be nice for carrying things, but throws the look of the car out of proportion and balance.
My box is 27" X 11.5" X 11.5" H. The top is 27" X 11.5" X 2" H. If your box will sit over the frame hump housing the rear spring add 1" X 2" strips around bottom on inside to support a removable floor. May need higher (1" X 3") strips depending on how much your frame protrudes. Inside corner braces as shown in Waynes photo will add quite a bit to strength. Good luck. Gary
If you have to pack clothes and parts for a 12 hour day across hundreds of miles, you do what you gotta'd do: use a trunk.
I bought this off tbay for under $100. They're found in antique shops everywhere.
