Dear me Mark only on cars delivered to the Amazon area in South America. When one became stuck in the river crossings one whipped out the boards and off with the shoes and down went the feet and push you did!! Sorry!!!
I stand to be knocked down but I would be suprised if any post war RR or B chassis had wooden floors. Certainly prewar cars did. The Cloud series not only had steel floors, no part of them was removable unlike the previous model where the whole front floor could be removed which was marvellous for fat old fools like myself who hate to be inverted and subjected to showers of greasy mud and other detritus lodged in the entrails. The Cloud body I believe was so strong one could almost have dispensed with the chassis!!
