One of Gregg's books has the production figures listed for each chassis type , I think the end production of C8/F8 was just under 10,000 with about an equal split for Ford/Chev.

I have been wanting to fabricate the canvas framework for some time, I have asked around but nobody local has the correct pipe bending mandrels. They used heavy gauge plumbers pipe for some reason. I will make up a bender myself , the thin walled gal. pipe seems the best option. 2mm walls . The heavier walled pipe 3mm is available but this would require more power ,
