  18. Tassie oak as we call it in australia is not a true oak however it was ideal for and was used extensivley in timber body frames by many local body builders Harder and more durable timber was used for the flooring on flat tray and well bodied utes
  19. DCE you dont say where you are from I presume somewhere other than USA as US Dodge Brothers had all steel bodies If you sre like me from Australia I believe the timber used was Tasmanian Oak It was in good supply light and strong Hope this helps Ron
  20. It was Quite common to have a slight gap between the slats so as to prevent warping if the timber got wet The same as when beds [trays if your an Aussie] had wooden floors a slight gap of about 1/8th was left between the boards[slats] They usualy closed up in winter but the boards didnt buckle and warp In summer when the moisture was cooked out of the timber you would have the gap back again
