Hi ..Im currently building 3 of these delivery vans..My bodies are hand built in Ash & birch ..by an elderly fellow in Canada..
im hoping to finish all 3 by the end of 2010 using authentic parts & replicated new parts then sell them off to a large corporation as promotional vehicles..I was wondering what wood was used to replicate your 1913 delivery van..john
