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

I would like to ask, do you have any good pic's of how the cowl meets the wood cab? Fitting the cowl isn't in the plans.

James, I am starting a huckster also and would you please let me know where to get plans from. Thanks, Ron Johnson

I know a Huckster is not a "true blue" Model A Ford type body but there are a number of them around. So all you "odd balls" let's join in together and share some ideas.

Fred, I am just getting started on a huckster but as of yet have not found out where to get a set of plans. Can you help me here? Thanks, Ron

Ron, sounds like you have a project ahead of you. My huckster was made from a completed body that I purchased from Lentville A's back in Holland, MI. I just went back there and picked it up from Jon and hauled it out to Oregon and just sat it on my frame. I guess I did it the "easy" way.


But in the Model A News there has been the ad for body plans. The ad is from the "Wagon Works" 213 S.W Kline, Ankeny, IA 50023 Phone number is 515-964-5085 ( evenings). I do not know anything about what they have to offer so you may give them a call and check.


Other than this ad, I do not have any more info about huckster plans. There is also an ad for complete body kits for Woody Wagons if you are interested in that type of body. It says to call Neil Brown at 231-620-7802 or Mike Nickels at 231-342-9173.


Hope this info helps. Good luck.

Ron,


I bought my plans from Wagon Works too. I'm building their "Huckster Van" but they have plans for several different styles of wood bodies. If you do end up ordering a set of plans from them, be sure to also get the DVD since the DVD includes additional information that clarifies parts of the paper plans.


Good Luck and be sure to keep us posted on your progress!!!
