1934 pontiac wood kit?

Does anyone know anyone that makes wood kits for old pontiacs? My dad has a 1934 5 window coupe that doesn't have any wood in it. So we have no patterns to use. Any help in any direction would be helpful.
Thanks

Replace the wood with steel tubing.
There is no such thing as similarity in a wood kit except that it is made from wood. Every make had their own dimensions, bends tweaks and turns. You just cannot modify a wood kit from a Ford or Chevy to fit a Studebaker or a Hupmobile or an Oldsmobile or a Conestoga Wagon. Wood doesn't modify well, know what I mean Vern?

There have been several comprehensive, well illustrated articles in rod mags in the last few years showing how the steel tubing is installed in a previously wood-structured car body. Get them, read them, and visit the steel yard. Save yourselves a bunch of money (oak and ash aren't cheap) and a big sackful of aggravation.
