Can you identify the company that manufactured the depot hack body in this photo?
More of a "covered express" than a depot hack - hacks usually have multiple seats.
Any idea of when it was produced? Syverson Cabinet Company of Desplains, IL produced wooden replacement / kit bodies back in the 70s. I don't know if they are still in business. My Syverson bodied speedster has a VERY small brass tag located on the seat riser.
I have no idea when it was produced and it has no brass tag. Bummer.
Actually Kim, Syverson Cabinet Company was (or, maybe is?) in Palatine, Illinois. The founder of the business passed away about 15 years or so ago, but I believe the son (Ray Syverson) continued on with the business at that time. Whether that business still exists or not, I am not sure,......harold
The firewall on my 09 was made by the Syverson company. I contacted Ray to see if date it for me and during the discussion I believe he also retired quite recently.
The company moved several times and as they always put their name and town on the products, it is possible to determine when various items were fabricated.
The body looks home made to me.
I found a Syverson catalog on-line. It looks like mine is a covered express but it's a little different from the one in the catalog. Here is a link to it: https://www.nwvs.org/Technical/SyversonWoodBodies.pdf
