The one type of metal body which does not appear to have been developed to any great extent is what one may call the all-metal built-up body… This construction may be likened to that of a modern steel ship. Whether it will be possible to make it lighter or more durable than a really good wood frame I very much doubt, and the indications at the present time are all in favor of the wood frame maintaining its popularity with motor body builders, not merely because it is the form of construction for which their experience and training best suit them, but because they have not been able to discover any other advantages in building."

C. W. Terry, in Motor Body Building:
A Practical Treatise on the Various Branches of Motor Body Construction,
For Coachbuilders, Draughtsman, Designers, Students, and Others
Published 1914 by E. & F.N. Spon., London & New York
