    Hey all,

    Anyone got photos of 41ish Plymouth Sedan customs? I ask cause I got a line on one and while I know EXACTLY what I’d do with a coupe, not sure on a sedan. Wondering if anyone has chopped one and worked the the bulbous back into a slope for a chopped smooth custom look

    If you’ve got any, please send. Need inspiration

    Thanks

    I would look at some 50 fleetline or 40 ford chops to get ideas. You could probably move the roof forward a bit and lay the trunk down.

    No personal experience with a 40’s Plymouth sedan but Take a look at videos of people chopping a 46-48 Ford sedan. That is probably closet to the Plymouth roof shape.
    They are more work then it might appear.
    You can lay down the rear window some what but the best ones I’ve seen done involves cutting out the entire roof skin and taking some of the crown out of it. As well as splitting it length wise which leaves you a gap to fill fight down the center of the roof .
    Of course there are other ways well.
    Not a chop for the faint hearted.
    JMHO
