or is it thicker?

I remember poster board as white and smooth. It would be about the same thickness as .030 thick cardboard, but I would imagine it would be more expensive.

The chipboard in question is a paper product which is thin cardboard like the cardboard on the back of a tablet of paper. There are pictures of it in post #5. You can cut it with a scissors and bend it and curve it however you want.
No I'm afraid not... Kevin was spot on . What we call chipboard here in the UK is what you guys call particle board , we call OSB by the same name but it's primarily used on flat roofing jobs under the felt/asphalt , masonite also has the same name but is also called hardboard , often used as backboards in cheap furniture ,or if you're intending putting rubber/vinyl or carpet flooring down on top of old floorboards we'd put a close fitting layer of masonite on top of the boards , give it a good soaking with water and tack it every 6" , as it dries out it goes nice and tight for a firm level base for your carpet or whatever . We also call MDF the same and use it for the same type of jobs .

I know the coarse cheap type of cardboard you mean but I don't know the correct name for it .

p.s. to the original poster ... this is a great forum but you might also consider signing up at http://www.rodsnsods.co.uk , we'd love to see all you guys come check out the UK hot rodding scene too

The original question was what Ron Mangus was referring to in his book on hot rod interiors, and the "chipboard" he is referring to is thin cardboard, not wooden sheet products of any kind.
