I am interested in building my own steel body coupe. Does anyone know where i could obtain some measurements for a starting point at least?
I will going to some events in near monthes that I am sure will have a few T's there, but would like to start on my drawing/plans soon.
Any help or measurements any one has would be appreciated.
No such drawings exist to the best of my knowledge. Have you seen a 26-27 all steel coupe body up close? There are many compound curves and some heavy gage steel framing and substructures. Restoring an existing coupe body would seem to be more time and cost effective.
Jeff is correct.
Much better to start with a used worn out body.
If your going to street rod it, the coupe body at least gives you the subframe rails, you can custom sheetmetal over it, leave off the window risers and add electric lifts.....

Coupe body on eBay last month, no sale at $600 asking price....a nice start here.
Along those same lines, can anyone post or give me the dimensions or refer me to some source for the dimensions of the wooden seat back frame and the wooden seat bottom for a 1927 coupe? these are the wooden frames that the cushions ride on.
My coupe didnt have the frames in it when I purchased it.
Jim Yes I could give you the information if I had your e mail address. Send it to me. On my coupe the bottom of the seat had the wood frame. I however have not had the wood support for the back of the seat--I am also looking for those measurements.
Does the front of the metal framework on which the seat rests have two pins on top---they fit in to two holes in the wood frame to shift the front seat forward or backward.
