What type of wood was used on the chassis of the Arrow and 999?
If I aint mistaken a Brush had a wood frame or axle?

I would think hickory for the same reasons as the spokes on our T's but it looks like these cars had wire wheels?

The Brush had iron pieces on the ends. I don't know if they would actually float or not? But that was good for a major laugh! Thank you BCG! I needed that.

In the case of Franklins and Stanleys I believe they are typically ash.

Well, yes Brushes are a 'little' underpowered. . . And the engines run the wrong direction. . .If memory serves me, spark and throttle work backwards too (but it's been about 25 years since I drove one).
BTW, Stanleys use wood reach rods between the axles, wood frame, but metal axles!! :-)
