Bob, have you checked fordwood in utah? They make the wood kits less than the suppliers. I have their wood in my '20 runabout. If you want to make your own everynow and then a set of Mel Miller plans come up for sale. Good luck and remember fit the wood to the metal not the other way.

And if you do buy a wood kit just remember that the wood kit will have to have some fit up. It just wont drop into place.
The reason is that Ford used up to 4-5 body makers to make and build the bodies.

The sheet metal is pretty much the same but some of the body builders sheet metal has a few minor variations.

Good advice from George V. also about fitting up the wood to the metal FIRST and get the right fit up then start putting the metal together.
