Pics are on hartford Connecticut Craigslist ..... still can't figure out how to post here..... thanks keith
Thanks for posting the pic
That is cool! I would love to hear more of the story about Aluminum bodies!
1915 Centerdoor bodies were also made out of aluminium, but high costs for the material and a limited gain in weight caused a change to steel from 1916. The same story was repeated at the intro of the Fordor in 1923, but the change to steel was more gradual into 1924.
There were aluminium skinned bodies in 1909 too, made by one of the body producers, Beaudett in Pontiac, Michigan.
I have hood and radiator and shell that goes with car just not in pic......
My 24 fordor has aluminum door skins, quarter window panels and the upper rear window panel. The rest of the body is steel.
