What Kind of wood?

I'm in the process of restoring a 1928 Durant M2, and Iwas wondering if anybody knows what kind of wood should be used for the frame. I have a lot of dry rot,and termite Damage.
especially on the pieces between the Body, and chassis

Re: What Kind of wood?

From all that I've seen the wood is usually Maple or Oak. Any other could probably be used as long as it is a good hard wood.

Re: What Kind of wood?

White ash will also do a great job.
