Hey guys. I keep flip-flopping between making a speedster with my T, or a touring car. I have acquired the following touring body parts:
1) front left and right body panels,
2) back left and right body panels, with back seat metal and back of car
2) front seat metal material
3) one front fender
4) one back fender
5) two running boards
6) both shields/side skirts
Most of these body pieces have no wood on them, and I have no idea what the wood work is like for a 17-25 touring car. Does anybody have the body plans/wood plans in diagram form, blueprints, etc? I know Lang's sells a wood kit, but it's out of my price range. I know my body is of 23-25 design.
Leon Parker and Jennifer Miller have plans available.
Thanks for the response, I'll look into it.
I have a partially restored touring body, circa 1919 that has a new wood kit, I am not going to use it, and I think I could make you a deal that would be cheaper than making one. My e-mail is magnus(a)safelink.net

I have a few shots on there. I could probably find more. Mine is a kit, back when the kits were 1300 bucks.
Are the Miller plans still available? I had them bookmarked for my upcoming runabout project, but the site appears to be gone. Just wondering.
Matthew, you have the bug bad. I can see now that eventually you will have one of each. A speedster and a touring car. Maybe a closed car too. I've seen it dozens of times. You can laugh at this now but in twenty years think about this.
One of the guys
Don't give anything away you might need later.
I have rewooding plans from 1913-27 for the roadsters and tourings. email@example.com
I hear Leon Parker's plans are the best. I had found Miller's online with a Google search, but at the time could not find Leon's contact info. I am going to replace his into my bookmarks now.
I am still curious what happened to Miller's website?
By the way, what Richard E said!
Maybe Jennifer isn't offering them any longer. I have two sets of them: one dirty from use and one pristine.
I custom fit my own pieces on my 22 touring cutoff with a table saw and some Home Cheapo wood it came out good. I couldn't afford the wood kit.
If you are not careful, you are going to outdo me on putting together something from nothing! I have followed the postings on what you have done with that family truck for a couple years now and I love it!
Anybody that has no money, but a few skills and determination, can have an antique car if they want one.
Yours is wonderful!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Wayne thank you, it means a lot. Every time I take the truck for a spin its like going back in time. James
Thanks again for the info guys. I took Gustaf up on his offer. Looks like I'm officially making a touring car! I am now more excited than ever to get this car back together and running.
