NEVER use Western Union for anything....their money sending documents are some of the most highly forged in the industry. And there is absolutely no recourse to get your money back.

Other that the extra extensions that were welded to the front, longer rear crossmember, and the possibly the brake quadrant, is there any differences in a 1926 frame from earlier ones?

I was thinking how one could modify a 26 frame to fit an earlier car, IF a regular frame could not be procured.

Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans

I am very good at organization and reprinting and cataloging, but the pricing would have to be insanely cheap and that would not be fair. Unless arrangement could be made to make payments to her in kind so she could benefit from the sale of the plans as well.

Re: '19 Centerdoor restore... :)

Don,

Will you be retrofitting a gas tank to go under the rear seat, or take the easy way and put it under the driver's seat? In 1915, it was under the rear.

Re: Ford history questions

Edsel Ford was only 19 in 1912, so highly doubtful he had a plan for replacing the Model T then. He didn't become president of Ford until 1919. The story about the sledgehammer is fictionalized for the movie "Henry Ford: The Man and The Machine". Cliff Robertson beat a prototype with a sledgehammer....

Re: Is Cubel's Fordwood still in business?

I compared my Classic Wood touring kit to a set of Mel Miller's drawings, and it was extremely close. You are right in that he did not do any drawings for closed cars. Fordwood was indeed taken on by the children of the original founders. That was about the time I was originally sourcing a body kit....

There is no other way to contact those people except by phone, post office or email. Period. Let's say you want to get a 25 touring body kit.

The wood in Joe Fellin's Centerdoor, while an ambitious restoration, was not anywhere near the caliber of Les's centerdoor wood. And that's just the opinion I formed from looking at both. I'm not degrading Joe's restoration at all, because restoring a center door is a daunting task. (i know first ha...

Re: ”Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black.”

One way to solve this would be for someone to offer up a totally original 1914 touring and allow scientific analysis of it's paint. And I mean a car that has never been touched.

I firmly believe when the assembly line began, there was only one color.
