I heard that there were some really good pictures of a 1914 touring body that was off the chassis posted here in these forum pages but I can't find them. Do you know where they are? Does anyone have any such pictures that can help me rebuild the wood in the body at the firewall/under floor area?
thanks a lot -
Hi Patrick, The pictures that I'm thinking of are actually at the MTFCI web site in their "Tech Corner" section. Look under "Open Car"
Good luck with your project, Bill
1. Recommend you contact Leon Parker (I didn’t see his name where I could click on it – but he often has posting on the forum. If you do a search on body plans Leon – he will probably pop up) . He sells an excellent set of plans for the tourings including the 1914.
2. If you go to: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/7861.html and scroll about half way down you will find pictures of Leon's 1915. But it is the early Beaudett 1915 that does NOT have the carriage bolt in the side of the body and that has the wood seat frames. That is virtually identical to the 1914 Beaudett body except for the way the 1915 gets smaller towards the dash. It is quite a bit different from the metal seat frame bodies – in that it has more wood (including an extra wood board in front of the front seat heel panel).

Thanks a lot, these links are really helpful. I see a lot of new things, what a great resource.
Send me an e-mail and I can send you the pictures of my early 1915. The wood is the same as my May of 1914 Touring except the cowl area. Leon
