In case anybody is looking for a set of body wood plans for a 24-25 Coupe there is a set on Ebay for sale.
These don't come around that often so I thought I would pass this along.
I have one of these cars so that's what caught my eye about the wood plans.
I have no interest or do not know the seller to make a buck.
When I restored my Coupe I wish I would have had a set.
Thank you for posting the information. The link to the e-bay auction is:
Looking in the lower right hand corner of the plans they were drawn by Ron (R) Buckley who is still selling his rewooding plans he drew up for his 1925 Canadian coupe. While there are slight differences between USA and Canada as well as earlier 1924 vs the later coupes they are still very helpful plans. His e-mail was posted and checked good back in Feb 2012 and is: email@example.com Folks should be able to order direct from him.
From one of the previous posting a person who used the plans stated, “This is the best set of wood plans you can find for a 24/25 coupe. He includes an instruction book on how he did it, well worth the money, which I believe I paid at the time $90.00.this was in 2002.The plans are full size.”
If someone is considering rewooding a 1924-25 coupe, if they send me an e-mail with a subject line similar to “Send 1924-25 Coupe restoration article” I will send them a free copy of two articles form the “Vintage Ford” about rewooding/restoring the 1924-25 coupes. One of those is Ron Buckley’s article. They are not a substitute for the plans, but they are helpful. If someone wants those articles, they can click on my name at the beginning of this posting and my e-mail address is the third line down or you can send me a private message via the forum. The club allows us to share those articles for free to promote our club, our hobby, and to hopefully get a few more Ts on the road.
For someone rebuilding a 1924-25 Coupe I would also recommend looking at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/45766.html where Dave S. explains that there were actually several versions/slightly different 1924-25 styles of coupes, even though most vendors only sell one wood kit for the 1924-25 coupes.

I have a set of plans from Ron and I would never copy them.There is a copy right on the plans what protects him and he can go after any one that does! Ron spent many hours drawing them up and they where great for building my coupe, I wish I had more time to do the favor he did for the T's and draw a set for a fordor. I have seen many plans out there but NONE are full size plans. My hats off To Ron Buckley.Thanks again for your plans and time spent!!
I am the one with the wood plans on ebay I had 2 1925 Coupes which I have sold I purchased these plans from Ron Buckley Ron & they were very helpful in restoring my cars I thought I would pass them on to someone else.There are actually two sets of plans another set from Jenifer Miller & other information I have collected.These are not copies just for the record.
I have to say Bill is great to deal with. I purchased a number of parts recently through eBay and they arrived quickly and were well packed. I would have bought the plans too but I got mine directly from Ron a month or so ago. He still sells them for $90 and I can't say enough good things about them. With the second set with Bill's auction makes it a good deal.
Thanks for clarifying that the plans were not copies. And as Rich noted, with the other plans and information included they will be a great help to anyone rewooding a 1924-25.
And for someone who may read this after the auction, you should still be able to contact Ron Buckley to obtain a copy in the future.
