Anyone with a 1913 Touring....
Can you measure the width of your front and rear seat frames, outside to outside (of framework not body ) for me and height from the top of the seat base to top of roll both front and rear seats.
Pics of the under framework would also be so helpful too.

How much different in width of the rear body to the front of the body .. my re wooding seems wide at the back , maybe to wide .... not sure.

thanks in advance for your assistance.

David, you probably have a Canadian touring body if so some of them are a lot wider than the normal bodies.

I remember years ago there was a discussion on these bodies in The Vintage Ford magazine. The owner of one wrote asking about it and unknown to him one of his mates organized for another member to write in claiming the body was specially made for an Indian Maharaja as he was a large person and couldn't fit into the normal width seat. I was in the USA at the time and went to his house and was told the story by the proud owner. It wasn't until we left that the guy I was with let me in on the secret ( he was the instigator) it was 12 months before they owned up to their joke.
