    A depot hack would be easy. If you are going to work with wood, challenge yourself. Wouldn't a boat tail speedster Chevy be unique, and a challenge.

      Strangely enough, my Dad and Step mom have a Model T Depot Hack in their garage.

        I could make any type of body from wood...a simple pickup box would be neat too, less work!

          If I grew vegetables, it would be real useful every Thursday at the farmer's market.

            Like the Good Humor truck Not suggesting that for Jim's Chevy, just that I like it.

            In the words of my middle brother, "Sure I'm the Good Humor Man. Wanna fight about it??!!"

                  yup!

                  I went to see The Man about getting a title...since there is no floor for there to be a serial number tag on, there's not much they can do right now. He suggested I get the thing mostly put together (wheels, lights, etc) then apply for bonded title, and they'll probably have to assign a VIN.

                    If you plan to keep the motor, can they not go off that?

                    If you wanted to go the cheap and easy route for a body.

                      They might be able to go off the motor, we'll see what happens. That's kind of what I had in mind...sort of....thanks for the pic!

                        When I got a new "VIN" on my little camp trailer in California, it was shockingly easy. The guy came out, looked at the trailer, checked the lights, rubbed clean a spot on the frame and stuck a metal tag on it and printed out the registration. 20 minutes once I got to the counter. If a car and Arizona is similar it wasn't that big of a deal.

                          They like to make things as complicated as they can around here. And good service is rare...there were about 30 folks in the lobby and one clerk working! they have 10 workstations, and no staff for a city of around 50,000 people. Crazy.

                              I didn't think stuff that old really had VINs, a serial number yes, but not much of a VIN.

                              Grandpa, 92 now, remembers his family getting a new Chevy in 1927, traded it in '29 for a new one. For '29 they made the 6 standard, no one will ever want a 4 again!

                                Folks call it the VIN, but yeah, they were just serial numbers until 1968.

                                neat! not many folks around can remember cars like this as part of daily life
