I have attempted to contact Leon Parker both by phone and email. No response. The phone appears disconnected. Any help in finding a source of body wood drawings would be appreciated. Thanks, John
Checking Leonís profile he was last logged in on Jun 17, 2014. I hope the reason you haven't made contact is because he is on some mission like visiting the grandkids or looking for T parts or some other high profile mission. I have not heard of anything that has happened to him, perhaps someone else has an update about Leon?
To help with your search for wood plans, you may want to add what body style and year of wood plans you are looking for. For example Leon does not produce the 1924-25 coupe wood plans but they are available from another source. And of course if you want wood plans for a 1923 it is often helpful to add if is a low cowl 1923 or a high cowl 1924 model year that was produced in 1923 calendar year etc.
Note in today's instant access society, I get used to web sites like Amazon.com responding in less than a minute with an e-mail saying my order is being processed. But I have to remind myself that with most of the T folks -- it is our hobby and we are busy doing lots of other things also. So I wouldn't be too alarmed at the moment.
And yes, Mel Miller's daughter also has made Melís wood plans available on an "on and off" basis. Of the two plans, I prefer Leon's because in the past he often provided telephone, e-mail, and forum support to questions folks might have. The last contact information I have handy for Melís daughter was at the thread http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/346173.html?1362690117 and it was not that solid.
Good luck with your project. Iím sure you will be able to find a set of wood plans. Worse case if both Mel and Leonís plans are no longer available direct from the original sources, you should be able to borrow a set or purchase a set from someone who no longer needs them. You will see them advertised in the classified section every now and then.
Does anyone have an update on Leon? Iím assuming he is doing well Ė but some confirmation would be appreciated.

I have wood plans for open cars. Give me a call at 303-774-9246. I will be out of state for a few days so wait a couple of days before you call
Hap Tucker...thanks for your meaningful response...as always. You are a major contributor to the forum...I'm sure everyone appreciates it.
Dave Huson...thanks for the offering.
I need plans for a '19-'22 touring.
Forgot to mention that this thread is a follow-up to my previous thread. This may give some insight.
I ordered wood work patterns from Leon for my 24 roadster a few weeks back and they arrived in New Zealand very quickly. They are very clear and detailed. I only wish someone had done the same thing for the 1920s chevs I have restored in the past. I suggest be patient I am sure he will respond
Yes I am still here. We have been out of town for two weeks. I do have a new phone number 270-493-6088
prints from 1913-27 tourings and roadsters.
Leon its nice to see that you are O,K,
Thank you for the update. I hope you had a good break for the normal routine and welcome back.
