I missed your post. Seems like we did almost exactly the same thing, give or take!

Internet high five!

I'd call that an inch or so up front and perhaps as much as two inches toward the rear? It's a lot of work for a seemingly small return, but it'll look better than slammed down too low.

51ChevPU - I dig the coupe. It looks pretty nice and complete as a starting point.

There are a few of us on here who have chopped Hudsons, with some success. Years ago, when I was considering a chop on my Brougham, I collected photos of every chopped Hudson I could get my hands on. Unfortunately, there were plenty of horrible examples, and few good chops at that time.

These days, thankfully, there are a few more nice chops out there to model your haircut after.

In my opinion, when it comes to chopped stepdown Hudsons, a mild chop flows the best.

Since your car is a coupe, I'll point you towards "THEKID49" 's chopped coupe. He pretty much set the bar on a perfect coupe chop. He's already commented in this thread, but here's a link to his chop thread:
http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=542232

Hudson48's chop was a 4door to 2 door conversion, and is absolutely beautiful.

Studhud's Brougham is also a killer chop on a Brougham. His car has a different rear window than mine, and has slanted B pillars. He also swapped out the windshield for a cut down 54 unit. If I reember correctly, his car is chopped 2.5 inches at the B pillar.

My chop was done a few years ago. I cut 2 inches out at the B pillar, and slid the entire top forward a bit, dropping the rear window a bit and then filling the tulip panel above the trunk. Granted, my car and studhud's car are both Broughams, but you get the idea.

Here's mine:



And in case you want to look through an old thread that details the chop portion, check out this link:

You have just provided an excellant perspective on the shop of a step down Hudson. Also,I have reviewed all of your cars and chop posts just so that I can stay on track.

I would agree that TheKid49 has set the standard for the coupe. If I do the chop, I think that's the direction I'll take it.

My first preference was a Brougham, but when the coupe came along, I grabbed it since I had already had a 51 four door.

I'm looking forward to the build since you simply don't see many around and I tend to like them better than the merc.

Thanks for the helpful comments!

Here's something I've thought about, but have only been able to find one car that looks like it has a carson on it.

RichD, you probably have the gift and talent to photoshop one, but I've only seen the photos I posted below.

Anyone up to the challenge of photoshoping a similar carson on my coupe just to see what it might look like? Sorry...but I can't make the pictures below any larger.
