G, day everyone, my name is Steve and I am only new to the club, I live north of Tamworth and love old stuff.
I have recently brought a 1927 Chevrolet truck and was hoping someone may be able to give me some direction or advice on building a timber cab and tray for it, having searched the internet I have not been able to find anything as far as plans or design, or measurements go.
Any help or information would be greatly received,
don't forget that in 1927 most truck cabs in Australia were still made by coach builders who each had their own design. There was no ' standard' truck cab back then. Most were imported as a running chassis and the panels from the cowl forward, the rest was custom made
Also build the cab to suit your dimensions people are generally larger in all directions than they were 90 to 100 years ago - the extra space in the cab is the difference between an enjoyable, comfortable drive and a cramped, uncomfortable, pain in the neck vehicle you hate driving
Hiding in the shed covered in grease and muck - want a coffee?
There is a member of our Club at MAcksville that has one of these or very close to the year model but same cab style ass the green one in the first post of that link. Mike does not always come to the rally being held at the end of this month but his is a fine example and from memory has a tinber slat bench seat so if you go that way find a space to store some pillows for under ya bum.
