1932 wood body framing
« on: April 02, 2008, 08:41:13 PM »
I'm currently rewooding a 1932 convertible coupe Fisher body 168. Due to the complexity of the parts it will be some time before the project is done.  Owning a cabinet and wood products manufacturing company affords me the use of large machinery to replicate the parts correctly.  The purpose of this posting is to see if anyone else is interested in acquiring a wood "kit" if I were to make an extra set.

I don't own anything of this vintage, but I did want to commend you on such a generous offer.  I cannot imagine having to restore a wood frame, and having anyone offer their assistance on such a venture would surely be appreciated.

Please keep us up to date on your project, and thanks for perpetuating what the CLC is all about -

Tod and Geoff
Thank you for the kind words.  I am surprised by the large response I have received by emails,  Apparently quite a few of these are being restored. I am happy to be of help.
Regards,
Mike

I have recently purchased a 1932 Fleetwood 5 passenger coupe and am in need of wood for it.  Today I read your post from several years ago.  Did you make any extra when you did yours?

There's been nothing on this forum from Michael for 6 years:-\
