Yes I would think you could. Send me your email and I will try to send you a picture of mine.
Mine was a 1929 CCPU and it looks like yours is a 29 also.

Yesterday was a landmark day for me. I installed my new Mitchell transmission, thus completing my Huckster's chassis.

Now comes the fun part: turning perfectly good lumber into sawdust!

Woo Hoo!!!

Yes, it is. Just not much activity.

Let's see if I can breathe new life into this thread so it won't fade into obscurity.

My 1930 chassis is complete except for painting and the next order of business is to start building the wooden body. However, I'm having a dickens of a time locating adequate lengths of tongue and groove white oak for the rear floor. Floor & Décor (a wood flooring chain in Houston and probably elsewhere) sells bundles of random-length white oak flooring (for houses) but I need all one-piece 6-footers for my rear floor since the Huckster's flooring-support framework isn't set up to adequately support flooring splices at random locations. Anybody have any suggestions that won't involve a complete redesign of the floor structure?

I thought of buying several bundles from Floor & Décor just for the long boards in each bundle but that would cost a small fortune and result in a lot of unneeded short boards.

Harvey
