1940 wood siding

We just purchased a house that was built in 1940. The exterior has wood siding on that has about a 2.5 inch reveal. It's common on older houses but does not seem to be used any more. I'm trying to find some for repairs. I can't tell if it comes in sheets or strips. Sound familiar?

Most likely it's a strip type siding since plywood wasn't very common at that time. Pull a pc off that you are going to have to take off anyway and visit some older building supply places in your area....not big box stores like HomeDepot/Lowes/etc, but local places that can tell you more about it.

Don't know where you live, but when I worked in Charlottesville, Va., this was a stock siding (just 10 years ago) - It was called 1X4 - but was a true 1/2" thick by 3-1/4".

Like Andy said - the box stores won't have it - but a good lumber yard should - or be able to get it.
