I have what looks like an after market Martin-Parry wood cab on my TT. It's fairly complete but needs to be restored. I am missing several boards use to attach the floor of the cab to the chassis.
The Martin-Parry website has some great catalogs and my cab most closely resembles the Cab No. 52 found on page 23 of the 1919 catalog. I contacted the Martin-Parry website owner and they do not have any cab blue prints.
Does anyone out there have a cab that resembles mine that you could send me pictures/dimensions of? This would greatly help me piece together what I am missing.
While I can't help you I am enjoying your excellent photos of that wonderful body.
Thanks and best of luck.
The curve in the bottom of the cab is a great look. More difficult to deal with than mine but well worth it.
Jason I sent you an email with my phone number. I cant text photos of parts easier than email.
I would suggest replacing all the glass with safety glass too while you have it apart.
All the best.
Thanks everyone. Anyone else recognize this cab or one similar? I didn't see any on the Martin-Parry registry that resembles mine.
Jason, you can read up on the history of the Parry company on coachbuilt. That was before they merged with Martin to become Martin-Parry. Surviving examples of Parry bodies are very rare, so you do have a treasure there, if you can substantiate it as Parry built. Sure looks like the details are close. ( I sold a Parry body tag a couple months ago. If you reach out to Jack Darons family, they may still have some. Jack reproduced them while he was still alive ) I have seen a Parry Hack but never a truck body. As Dallas mentioned, that curved body is a great early feature, as things were made less complicated later on. There were hundreds if not thousands of body companies out there, and only a very few made it until the late 1920s, with Martin-Parry being the largest. They became Chevrolet Body Divison, part of General Motors. Keep us posted on your history search. Great vehicle !!
