    Hi Hambers,

    i am curious about this body style...what is it, "panel coupe"??
    or is it a home made hybrid?

    i kinda like it very much..

    Looks like a RR. Btw RR doesn't stand for Rolls Royce.

  10. Not a Ford body style I'm familiar with. Kinda goofy looking to me.

    I'd bet it's a 4 door with the rear quarter window brought way forward and the back doors eliminated/filled to make a pseudo-sedan delivery. When you channel/lower a 4 door to that extreme level, the back doors become non-functional due to tire clearance.

    While I'm not a fan, it's no rat.

    I kind of like that, lots of work went into it. Nicely done.

    Not a rat, no; too well executed. But what bothers me is that it palpably references a rat-rod idiom, as if it is specifically addressing a rat-rod audience. And it is nothing but the fact that it sits too low. Another 3" under the body would transform it.

    I like the fats & skinnies. It's a wheel-tyre approach I've been proposing for years.

    It cant be from henry, look at how far the rear fenders go up on the body. Different but still a nice car.

    I agree not a RR. I do not dislike it. I would like it better if it was more stock looking as far as the channeling. It gets an A- for the idea and an A+ for the work that went into it.
     
  18. It's a regular coupe with the rear of a blind back sedan grafted on
