Default four doors are so gay... but what can i say i like men.



ive always wanted a 54 chevy but i couldnt afford a 2 door and a buddy had this sitting in his backyard for the last 10 years, so a deal was struck and i drove her home.

the car was in amazing shape and all the doors opened and closed great, and all the windows rolled up and down perfectly so i decided against a 2 door conversion ( although the idea is still somewhere in the back of my crazy mind) so i just decided to live with it and try to have a mild custom 54 with a couple extra doors

finally i was ok with those rear quarter panels opening and closing but i really didnt want to see the handles to them, so i shaved the rear handles along with all the side trim, emblems , and rocker panel trim. i also welded the seam up on the hood.

i didnt have the budget ( at all ! ) do have the bumpers dipped so i just took a flapwheel and smoothed them as best i could and make them shiny with grind marks, then i buried them in clear. they came out pretty good, not as good as chrome but pretty good for only about 20 bucks in different grits of flapwheel discs.

it has been painted sunburst pearl orange with a cream white top, the dash and all interior trim has been painted to match the top. the orange is crazy out in the sun the pics really do it no justice.

it has been converted to 12 volt and has a new gas tank in it ( 68 mustang new LOL) also some very untraditional front seats that i will make sure dont get posted in this thread (haha) also i redid the rear seat cover, and it has all new carpet.

i also dropped it 3 inches all around.

headliner still needs done, and the breaks have some pretty crappy sqeaks, plus the fuel pump is weak as shit, but those are all things i can work on while driving.

i only got about 2 grand in this the way it sits, so i really cant bitch about anything, im very happy with how it turned out.

anyways heres the pics
(im looking like crazy for the damn before pics, but not finding them right now ill post them as soon as i do)

I say if you got it you build it. You could have left the rear door handles and it still would have looked cool. Nothing wrong with 4 doors. Like my signature says... they make cool cruisers. It looks real good for 2 grand invested!

The whole "4 doors are gay" thing is gay. Great looking car. If it were mine I would be more anxious to get fender skirts on it than lose the extra doors.

I think it looks great with the four doors and shaved handles. Did you put in any outside entry system for the back doors? I know guys who say that four door cars are not worth buiding but I also know guys who prefer the four door car. The four door guys are significantly younger than the guys I know who think they are worthless. I wonder if it is a generational thing or if it is just the guys I know?

Damn nice looking car, especially for a 4 door. 4 doors are good for the kids and good for make'm too - or at least practicing. Nothing gay about that, unless you are into that kind of thing.

no outside entry system for the back doors, but its real easy for the person in the front to reach around and open it for ya. haha

im only 24 but i dont think its a generational thing, i just think older guys have more money to spend on 2 doors. and 10 years ago 2 doors were easier and cheaper to find.

ive been looking for quite some time and i all i could find was a couple of rust bucket basketcase 54 2 doors. and they all went for more than what i have in this car.

hell i started getting parts for the 2 door conversion (before i even found this car ) and i paid 200 just for a drivers door.

i dont like the look of fender skirts unless car is laying way down in the weeds, and this one is pretty much already as low as it will go without spending a lot of cash and cutting some shit up.

I used to be a 2-door-only person. I'd snub 4-door cars and hardly give them a second glance. Now I prefer them! You can get more people in and out without the contortions of folding the front seats, you can place swap meet items on the back seat easily. Lots of perks with those 4-door rides.

Nice ride! I'd rock that all over town!

I got my 4-door Century because I have a young family and I want to get them into cruising on summer nights together. If it's *gay* to have an easy way to get car seats in the back then I guess I'm gay. Don't know how I'm having kids if that's the case, but someone can explain that I suppose.

i get how some people may prefer 2 doors. Me personally i dont care. I like 4 doors, i like 2 doors. I just dont get how some people seem to make such a big deal on what some other dork might think in his own make believe world.

Thats a cool car. i dig it man, well done. i'da passed on a shitty 2 door for a decent 4. Starting with a good foundation is more important imho but hey thats just my opinion...

however my mind is still blown by the announcement that you like men in the thread title....

4 doors can be cool. i mean look at the 60's continentals. like was said, you can score a really nice 4 door for less than a basket case 2 door in most cases.

one thing ill say that was pretty great about getting a four door is...

the old lady was bitching for monthes when i was looking a 54, but as soon as i found the 4 door i was telling her how it was gonna be more practical and WE would get more out of buying it, ect ,ect..

then all the sudden it became a great idea and almost like she was the one telling me i should get it, so that worked our pretty great.

so its a cool custom to me, and a good gas mileage getting practical grocery getter for her.

even though shes never gonna drive the damn thing. haha.

Good to see any old car back on the street! Pity the poor guy that drives a mini van to work everyday and never gets to enjoy the experience of owning and driving an old car cause he can't get past the fact it has 4 doors.
Good looking ride-have fun with it!

4-doors are great cars. There are only a few at any show. And trust me, when you have kids in car seats, those doors are a blessing!

oldcarfan,

First off, kudos to you for coming out as a homosexual. That was a pretty brave thing to do on a forum full of cantankerous old timers and ex-punk rock/skateboarder too cool for school hipster doofuses! I'm sure you know you were taking a huge risk of not being accepted here as a man lover. So good on you!

Second, you did a great job with the chevy! The color looks good. Flashy and flamboyant, but not in a homosexual way. Stance is nice, but I'd like it a little lower front and back with skirts. I can understand though if you don't like skirts, lol.



Seriously, you did a great job. Nice work, and the car looks really good. Shaving the front door handles too would've done a lot for the cause. The whole 4 door vs. 2 door thing is really beyond me. I had a four door '53 bel air and had a lot of fun with it. But let's be realistic. Anybody who says they prefer four doors to two is a four door owner. Two door cars are infinitly better proportioned than four doors. It's just a fact (or maybe it's just my opinion). On the other hand, that's not to say that four doors are junk and unworthy of being built and driven.

There is a place in our world for four doors. They can be cool when done right. Yours is cool. You're enjoying it NOW. You probably wouldn't be driving now if you had the same amount of money in a two door project. Enjoy it, flip it for a profit and get a two door if you really want one! Otherwise, drive the fucking wheels off of it and be proud! YOU built it, take (gay) pride in it!

Being a guy of the 60's who is in his 60's I prefer two doors but this day in age they have priced themselves out of a lot of guys budgets along with becoming about as rare as rocking horse poop.
I had several friends who drove those 53/54 four doors back in the sixties simply because they could buy a lot more car for about half the money of a two door at the time and the hardtops have always been spendy in that model.

I'd just say to keep the mods simple such as the nose and deck and shaving a bit of trim on it. What you save in big mods can be spent on getting the chrome done later.

One thing about it though you can almost bet when you and a bunch of buds are at an event and it comes time to head out to dinner the 54 will be the choice for the whole bunch to cruise to dinner in.

Owned a few over the years. 4 days are just a great social car. Not that 2 doors don't have back seats as well, but there's just something about a 4 door that just makes you want to call up a few of your female companions and cruise the boulevard...or men in your case...not here to judge.

I bought my 49 sedan because it was a 4 door. didn't want another 2 door. never felt the need to apologize to anyone because of it.

4 door haters are lost in the 70's.

Got a '52 Stude suicide 4 door IMO looks as good as a 2 dr, The 2 door thing was great way back when they were so plentiful, but now hey, a 4 door is way better than a no door.

First, shave the handles (done!). Next, weld the things shut. Finally, extend the front doors back a few inches ---- viola!

Car looks good. Drive what you like. Ive had a few four doors over the years. I don't understand shaving off the rear handles though. Are you embarrassed its a four door? Doesn't seem like it to me. I think you should shave the fronts to match ... That would complete it for me, course its not my car, drive what you like =)

This is my first 4 door. Didn't shave the rear handles for anything except to smooth it out a little more. Skirts fit right over the dog legs on the rear. Just more room for more people to enjoy the ride.....

I agree about shaving the rear door handles off on a 4 door and leaving the front on. It does not trick anyone into thinking it's a 2 door. It makes the car not look right. If your going to do it shave off all the door handles. I think door handles are ok, and in my personal opinion, they should be shaved off only on full out customs, like cars with a top chop, etc.

ahh crap you guys mean you can still see the rear doors even though theres no handles? well shit!

LOL. you both thought way to much to this, i wasnt trying to trick anyone into thinking it was a 2 door. i just didnt have the money for this project to buy door poppers ( and ive had bad experience with them before, and could care less about hooking them up.) the rears dont need any so i could shave them off without having to worry about getting in and out, but still have a nice smooth look. thats the reason i only shaved the rears.

LOL. you both thought way to much to this, i wasnt trying to trick anyone into thinking it was a 2 door. i just didnt have the money for this project to buy door poppers ( and ive had bad experience with them before, and could care less about hooking them up.) the rears dont need any so i could shave them off without having to worry about getting in and out, but still have a nice smooth look. thats the reason i only shaved the rears.
You don't need poppers. That's what the vent windows are for. Now shave those front handles and blend that paint!

It looks good.
I gotta say though it would look better if it were a 2 door.
I understand that you have to work within your means, and you did a great job.

You leave the vent window open and just reach in and grab the inside handle.

Right. It's not really a trick. Just must not be popular in the gay community,lol.

If you're worried about security you can put one of these in your vent window.

Good tip.

You can also run a cable from the handle inside the door through the door, through the jamb into the front fender. It'll be out of sight but easy to grab if you do it right. Put a loop on the end and pull on it to open the door. Lots of guys with solenoids and poppers do this as a backup in case the batteries in the key fob go dead. I'm sure somebody's got pictures.

The benefit to four doors is that they are usually in very good condition.They havent been butchered and hacked a million times.And they make great donor cars for Two doors..lol..Kidding.

I dont know why 4 drs keep getting refered to as gay. I would love to have such a cool 4 dr to haul the friends around. Were all getting up there in years and pounds and crawling into a 2 dr is not as cool as it used to be......or maybe I'm just getting gay in my old age?

Looks good! I did a 1951 Ford 4 dr. Custom that way in 1961, plus changed the grill to a custom made ( by me ) 1957 Chevy pu grill and tail lights added a 1958 Chevy roof vent. Painted it White, it was black. I was 16 @ the time.

I'm sure you know you were taking a huge risk of not being accepted here as a man lover. So good on you!

Second, you did a great job with the chevy! The color looks good. Flashy and flamboyant, but not in a homosexual way. Stance is nice, but I'd like it a little lower front and back with skirts. I can understand though if you don't like skirts, lol.



Seriously, you did a great job. Nice work, and the car looks really good. Shaving the front door handles too would've done a lot for the cause. The whole 4 door vs. 2 door thing is really beyond me. I had a four door '53 bel air and had a lot of fun with it. But let's be realistic. Anybody who says they prefer four doors to two is a four door owner. Two door cars are infinitly better proportioned than four doors. It's just a fact (or maybe it's just my opinion). On the other hand, that's not to say that four doors are junk and unworthy of being built and driven.

There is a place in our world for four doors. They can be cool when done right. Yours is cool. You're enjoying it NOW. You probably wouldn't be driving now if you had the same amount of money in a two door project. Enjoy it, flip it for a profit and get a two door if you really want one! Otherwise, drive the fucking wheels off of it and be proud! YOU built it, take (gay) pride in it!

I saw a 57 Chevy 4 door in one of the displays inside at the LA Roadster Show that had the rear doors "suicided" - really looked cool. I'm sure it was a lot of work, but it's something you might consider down the road a bit.

Picked up this four door for the wife the other day. Gonna use it to haul the grandkids around. Survivor 1962 Buick Electra 225, 401 nailhead with a dynaflow. Worked on the AC a few hours and its got cold air now. All original and all there. Heck the adjustable speed warning buzzer even works.

I like 4drs, 2drs, wagons, coupes, sedans, fords, chevys, mopars...whatever. I don't care what it is or what the stigma is about. If it's a good looking car, in good shape, I can afford it, and I like it,then I'll drive it and I don't give a RAT'S A$$ what anybody else thinks about it.

Pretty sure none of use got into Rods and Kustoms because we wanted to impress the general public in the first place right?

Gay is pulling up a three year old post and thinking the guy just got the car. Probably doesn't even own it anymore. I heard he traded it plus cash for a two door.
