But not to worry, my project does go beyond Ford and Chevy... in fact, I have "every" manufacturer from 1946-on and several makes pre war back to the early 1930's, including Hudson. I am still seeking the 1932-1933 Hudson and Essex models diagrams right now to finish the complete manufacturer's diagrams.

Thanks for understanding.

I have posted the same at the H.A.M.B. site to no avail so far though.

Erix Get a hold of the Hudson, Essex, Terraplane, club they would have all you need on the 1932-1933 Essex Terraplane. !933 was the last year with Essex in the name or being a car, It then became the Terraplane.

Your first question is on Google search. Good luck to you, you have quite a trip ahead of you,I'm sure that you will find that many of these cars, as a make have all this info in a club, I think you will be one of the few that have a big group of them all together, and rare cars well if you wanted to get into them, it could be a lifetime hobby or more, many blacksmiths, or bike makers of the day built one or two cars. Many towns across the US had car companies spring up, many carriage makers made cars, or just bodies for other companies. So you could keep busy for some time. Many I would not waste my time on, it would be neat to find out about the cars, but when only one or two were built, your time wouldn't be well spent.

Here is one for you, the Pan, I will even help you they were made in St. Cloud MN. Good luck and have a fun trip, learn as much as you can on each car, besides the frame, they will never make them again, those cars had class they weren't the cookie cutter cars that we have today.

I have gotten away from the restoration/concours kind of cars as I have found that there are enough differences from running changes and production tolerances to just drive a fellow nuts. It may be a commendable effort to try and be exact but I am not sure one can get there from here.

just what I have found..

Thanks for the heads up but at the HET website (and another that has the same books online), there isn't a shop manual that has the frame dimensions online but only the frame part numbers. Haven't asked yet otherwise.

No, won't be going for the minor makes pre war. If I was to include EVEY car manufacturer then I would both go nuts and broke keeping up the website. There were literally hundreds of auto manufacturers with many going out of business by 1930.

So, I focused on just cars that had X Frame bracing. That includes US cars made basically between 1932-1964. That is a task in itself and not all manufacturers used the X-Frame or not for very long but a majority did during that time span.

If anyone has manuals, bulletins, books that show frames with dimensions from the 1930s and early 1940s, please let me know. Always looking for help with scans for the project. Thanks!

1941 and 1942 Frame

I am bringing this back up to the top in hopes someone will post the frame dimensions diagram for the 1941 and 1942 Ford cars so we (and I) can see the differences? Thanks!

Erix You must not of got any help on a restorers forum or you didn't go there. I don't think many street rodder have what you are looking for, but you get a "A" for effort.

Moving this to the suspension forum for now, it's gone into left field from the original OP's question, turning more into a general discussion.

I don't have the name of the sites, but you could try early V-8, or early ford club, they should have something on them.

1941-42 Ford Frames

I am also looking for frame dimensions but for a 1941 Ford 1/2 ton pickup truck. I am building my own frame and need to know the OEM for the rear axle/diff unit. I am going to run a 48" straight axle from Speedway so I want a proper flange to flange measurement for the rear. Anybody have any info, would be greatly appreciated.
