          Appeal No. 96-2302                                                          
          Application 08/260,058                                                      


          claims 10 and 11 are objected to as being dependent upon a                  
          rejected claim, but would be allowable if rewritten in                      
          independent form including all of the limitations of the base               
          claim and any intervening claims.  Claims 14 through 17 stand               
          allowed.  Claims 19 through 34, the only other claims remaining             
          in the application, stand withdrawn from consideration by the               
          examiner pursuant to 37 CFR  1.142(b).  Based upon the above,              
          the sole claim under rejection and for review on appeal is                  
          claim 9.                                                                    
                    Appellant's invention pertains to a frame structure               
          suitable for packing vehicle bodies into a transport container.             
                    Claim 9 addresses a frame structure comprising, inter             
          alia, a base, a vehicle support means which comprises a lower               
          vehicle support member and an upper vehicle support member, the             
          members being mounted across the base in a horizontally and                 
          vertically spaced relationship relative to each other, the lower            
          vehicle support member being relatively close to the base in use            
          to support a lower end of a first vehicle body, and the upper               
          vehicle support member being relatively high from the base in use           
          to support an upper end of the first vehicle body, and attachment           
          means for securing the first vehicle body to both the upper                 
          support member and the lower support member.                                

                                          2
