    I'll see how i go with the photo's . I bought a 35 3 window coupe rolling body about 18 months ago Down in Tennessee . It had no floor and was very rough So we carted it back up to Indianapolis & cut it up & shipped it back to Australia . We also bought a 36 Sedan out of Ann Arbour Michigan . Nice original car . I think it was an old police car at one time . Nice front sheetmetal , no running gear , & reasonable floor pans , back to the right hand rear edge , wheel arches & right rockers . I'll be building a resto rod with dropped axle , '38 -221 flathead & a '39 box . Right hand drive . My son & myself stripped the sedan out & Un-picked the factory roof join & put the 35 back section on . To date it's taken about 3 months . I've used most of the sedan door sections to salvage the coupe doors . & this is where i'm at to date with it . Enjoy . 1. IMG_4357.PNG 2. IMG_4358.PNG 3. IMG_4361.PNG

    That is an awesome project, you're doing great work on her! Love that 3 window body style!
     
  13. If you ever lean towards a name for your car I think "Topnotch" would be a fitting moniker. Nice save. I Like what you're doing.

    One of my favorite fat cars . My buddy had one years ago , it was a nice car . Only issue was someone filled the roof with a flat piece of sheet metal . A donor top would have made it as sweet as apple pie .
