looking for a touring tub for a 1912 touring email me a firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com thanks
Early, middle, or late '12? Early '12s are step sided, late and middle '12s are often referred to as "slab sided". They are quite different.
early type no doors to the front if I can have not to fussy ,,middle or late
99.9% of all 1912 touring cars had fore-doors. I only know of one exception... If you want open front, you want 1911 or earlier. What is the serial number of your upside-down chassis?
You can order an entire reproduction body here:
Ray does nice work. He has a 1912 commercial roadster in stock.
You can always take the fore-doors off and have an open front. I have had mine on and off from time to time. My '12 is a late slab side without external rear door handles. I have the doors on now because my wife likes the way it looks with them on. I prefer the look with the front doors removed but anyone who is or ever has been married knows how that works out!
One thing for sure. A touring is not a tub. Lets get it right!
Larry - Kinda' wondered about that "choice of words" myself. Sorta' smacks of "hot rod", no?
In the hot rod world a touring is a tub.
sorry its a early touring im looking for ,im told that there is a late touring body type im looking for either type body thanks for you input .
Sounds to me like Andrew wants to destroy an early body to make a hot rod
Judging by the profile picture of a nice early brass chassis with no body, I'd say it's NOT destined to be a hotrod.
I frequently call a Touring body a tub also. I'm not a hotrodder, but I have friends who are, and occasionally buy up their left-overs to use on my projects.
I'm sorry I missed understood Andrew.
In Ireland, it might be called a tub.
I also buy leftover parts from hot rodders
no Richard if you look the picture im looking for it for my rolling chassis . it would be a sin to cut up a body for a hot rod . im trying to finish building my car . thanks
You can buy a new reproduction 1912 touring body from Ray Wells. His contact info is on the vendor page of this web site.
