I have a type 34 chassis and I've been told that it can be used for a Thing. I haven't been able to find any information to support it.

Any info would be appreciated.

I don't think you will.
It's a completely different shape.
Good luck, Mondshine

The Type 34 is a Type 3 Ghia. Those are even more uncommon than a Thing, Type 181.

I believe you can however use normal Karmenn Ghia Type 14 pans, with some alteration, instead of the unavailable Thing pans. Not the chassis.

That might be where the confusion is.
