I am sitting here reading the April 09 edition of
Autoweek, page 32.

There is a company in Ohio called Brookville Roadsters
Using their 750-to Hamilton Press they have
specialized in limited production of full steel body
shells. Featured is the fully authentic 1932 Ford
Roadster Body Shell. Fully leaded seams, rivets where
original, etc. All up to 2001 fit-and-finish
standards, They have sold 90 of these with another 90
on order. Price is $10,500 out the door (with doors).

it be done, would the volume be there, etc? For 10k I
would buy one. Looks like a job for Hugh and / or the

HI Mike,

Brookville Roadster is located here in Dayton and has been around
quite awhile. I have often talked to the other guys here in our area
about having panels made as the have a computerized laser cutting and
forming machine . If there is more interest I could load amphi up and
drive over and find out the scoop.
