There are repoductions of early GM Fisher Body Manuals which have illustrations of the structure in the 36 and earlier Chevrolets and other GM cars. These are available from various automotive related book outlets or from early Chevrolet parts dealers such as Kessler's in Olney IL.
Most early cars were structured in oak, ash, and other hardwoods.
But, as I have stated many times before, it is more economical and certainly time-saving to use steel tubing.

The Old Car Manual project has a body service manual for a 34 Chev. It shows the complete structure of the wood without body panels. It will give you a very good idea of what was used and where. From that you could decide how to build a steel replacement structure using light rectangular tubing.
