Does anyone know where I can find plans or information on truck bodies from 1910 to 1920? Plans, construction tips, general information? Or is such even available?
Try these folks:Hudson wagon works.
Thanks Jack! Are they "Wagon Works" in Ankeny, Iowa? If so, found them. Or if different, do you have a web address?
Yes -- that is the one Jack means. They also may have some TT bodies that are not shown on the site but are available. http://members.aol.com/wagonwork2/
And don't forget your local club. Here in SC, one of the members has built several Depot Hacks and has one available to look at and ask questions about.
If you want info on the different styles that were available there are several reprints of sales booklets available from the vendors, also on the Digital Library of Model T literature CD that is available (Langs DL001). And the Lang's old car parts catalog has two pages of wooden bodies they sell to convert the car chassis to a light commercial vehicle.
And if you search on wood truck cab on this site -- you will find several threads that discuss them.
