Iím looking into building a wood body, to replace what came on the my Model T frame. Would anyone have plans I could purchase. Find the attached photos, to give you an idea of what Iím looking for.

George,
If you are a taller person. Consider moving the gas tank and seat back a little bit when you build. You will be much more comfortable when driving.

Thanks,

George

With a bit of scaling this information can be adapted to a full or partial commercial vehicle.

George, I will be printing your drawings off, once I get back home. But due to winter, Iím staying in Florida, until it warms up. As for your plans, I like the detail on what type of wood, should be used, at which location.

I noticed some measurements on these drawings that don't seem to make sense. The article describes the body as being designed for a Ford commercial chassis (truck chassis) with a wheel base of 123 inches, and with a dash to rear wheel center measurement of 96 inches. You see the 96 in. on the drawing going from the dash to the rear wheel center. However,according to the other measurements on the drawing, the total body length is 96 Inches, from the dash. So the body on this drawing is for a standard T chassis, not a TT. Also, this body rests directly on the frame without any risers. If there are only the 1 3/4 in. thick crossbars resting on top of the chassis, the rear chassis crossmember hump would be above floor level. The body would require a garage door ht. with about 85 1/2 in. of clearance. It is nice how the plans tell what kinds of wood to use where, although if any oak is used it should be white oak.
