I think it's mainly information about the wood structure Mr Anderson needs Bob.

the 7513 and the 7533 appeared to be the same.  I wondered what the difference was?

I have both and, like I said, the 7513 from '37 has no trunk and the 7533 has one. As far as I know, several 75 (including the commonly described 85's - V12's) series - always referred to as "TOURING" Sedans and Imperials - had the trunk backs. Specifically, based on numbers obtained for me by Mat Larson (RIP) some years ago, Cadillac built 15 7513's in 1937. I have also owned a '36 7523 which had a trunk and the liquor "hatch"in the rear of the front seat (i.e., no IMPERIAL divider).

Yes, at this point I am interested in information about the wood and also trying to find in formation about the rear seat area.  Does it have an armrest in the center?  I am also going to need rear seat springs, brake booster and a spare wheel cover.

what type of brake booster are you after? Does it have to be specifically a Cadillac one?  A friend of mine has asked me to list a booster on eBay here in the UK. It's a large one, meant for high-end cars in Europe but could be made to fit any car with cable or rod brakes.

Thanks for the offer Steve.  If I could find the correct one I would consider buying it, however as early as I am in this project I would hesitate to try and fit something else.  The chassis is not assembled enough to know what would fit.
