Nope, Wescott doesn't have any plans to add any diagrams later that 1940 anytime soon.

For people who desire to use customized frames or something that "will fit", I can see your point. But for those who restore and seek points in competition, it makes a difference to have the correct frame under the car.

But many times you can't just use something that has a similar wheelbase as there would be too many alterations involved.

I felt my question was pretty straight forward and generic... I asked a question about the different frames and if someone could post the diagrams from the Ford Shop manuals so I (and others) could see the difference between 1941-1942. The reason for the use didn't seem relevant at the time.

When you post a question, make sure you have everything in it, I don't know every dimension on all the frames, but I do know what would work with what. That's what I was going to ask you this morning, is what you were doing.
