anybody have any pics of a 1930 chevy truck interior?

The project I have has rotted wood that either needs replacing or removed and then put metal in it's place. I'd like to go with metal. Anybody have any ideas or input?? Any help would be appreciated,thanks.

re: 1930 inside wood paterns.

look,guys,,I'm a long haul trucker. I'm only in town for a few days at a time. I'd like to find something about woodwork (or fabbed metal work) inside of a 1930 (or so) chevy truck before I leave out again. I seem to be having bad luck finding anything (10-24-09).

When I was doing a '34 Chevy Sedan, I found there are few companies out there that make reproduction interior wood kits. Whether or not you can find somebody that has a kit for your truck I don't know.

But I found more people than not are using steel to frame in these bodies. Is all the wood there? If it is you could try building them yourself, or it would atleast give you an idea where to build your framing.

If I can dig up some info on the wood kit companies I will, but I sold the car a few years ago.

naw the wood is mostly eat up...rotted out,you know. I had some time today so I got out there and started fartin around with it and I did some torchin and some grindin and then I decided to just build a metal structure inside to replace the wood. I looked at it a real long time and I see how I can do it. The metalwork will be covered up with carpeted panels anyway...so it ain't like anybody is going to see it anyway. I am planning to use 1 inch square tubing and 1 inch wide 1/4th in. flat stock. It will look allright. Planning to do the same with the flooring too.
I had to torch out some of those rusted in screws that were in the wood. Made some of that hard wood catch fire. Stunk like hell! Had to take a dish soap bottle with water in it to squirt out the smoldering. Got everything ready to start cutting the meatl and placing it in next week when I get back in town. I'm fixin to have to go back out on the road again in a couple of days.Dam...just when all the fun was startin too!

If it were I, I would get creative on my own as the trucks of those days really didn`t have a interior. They just had the very basics thrown in.
I imagine also riding in these with a V8 transplant makes the interior even worse noise wise than it was new, so adding some damping material would likely be of help. The older cabs like that had so little damping in them you can talk in them and hear a small echo. Really blew my mind the first time I noticed it. Your truck, you decide. But in case you can`t find what your looking for, get creative. Diamond tuck seat, door panels, would look old school but never goes out of style.

I have a dolls head for a radiator cap and the head is mohawked. The eyes bob up and down. As for creativity I allready took out most of the rotted wood (today 10-28-09) ONE piece at a time and replaced it with square tubing (one pice at a time). And for seats I have some that came out of a toyota. May have to make some higher floor mounts for them though, they're kinda short. And I used to build handicapped vans for the state years ago...so I allready know how to build panels and cover them with material. I'm planning to do that for this truck. Add sound proofing insulation to the floor and inside ceiling.
Building the inside of this truck wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. But it IS time consuming.
I find that I kinda like this stuff. So below is my next project. It is a 1928 international 1 ton truck. The interior was wood, it rotted, but the cab and the doors were there. They are in the back of my truck in the other picture. I'm thinking about Z-ing the frame and lowering it and making the back into a panel van look. I am gettin pretty good with that square tubing.
