You do nice work, loved your plymouth....
I'm beyond impressed, closer to speechless.
I do think hoarding Zephyrs is cruel, but seeing what you do with them makes me think they went to a good home.
The quality of work like yours makes me wonder why I even own metalworking tools.
Amazing work, thanks for posting your [pics.
Your PS version looks way better than the silver one. Way nicer form, the silver looks like it rolled.

Just think about what this guy is doing..taking a 4 door Zephyr and turning it into a two door.Welding in the bracing,cutting off the roof and restyling and building a new one.Not just a paper concept but actually making a structurally sound And aestheticly pleasing shape that flows nicely.How many people can do that?Beyond cool!
Thanks for sharing; especially the details.
Hell yeah I wanna watch this!

One more reason for me to love the HAMB
Beautifull work ...... Ernie
I admire the talent and work it takes to pull this off. Sure it's nice having the coupe to use for patterns,, but you still need to bring it all together and make the panels to fit those patterns.
Beautiful workmanship and eye for design! Really enjoy following along.
Made a flexable shape pattern off the decklid so i can start shaping the trunk skins, im doing the decklid skins in 2 pieces. i also made a paper pattern so i know where/ how much to shrink and it also tells me what size panel i need to start out with. these pics are from start to current progress
Got all the shape needed in the panel and at this point its clean up work and fine tuning before the panel is ready for installation. this is my current progress on the decklid, i need to make a hammer form to fold the lip over in the correct place along with making a wood buck and decklid inner structure. As i start doing those things ill post up more on that progress.
Rocker panel structure was smoked on this car so i need to make all of it, this is just the start of the progress and will be alot more to this piece then what im showing at this time.
awesome work. Did you stretch the doors to the proper length?
Wow , ! A question that I have , means nothing but in the pictures before you started. It appears the front and rear doors are the same, except from opposite sides? You are definitely skilled.
Awesome work!What gauge steel do you use for the decklid and rocker panels?
i will be making the doors the stock length as the 2 door, i will be also extending the quarters to meet the doors aswell.
im not sure, i didnt measure them but theres a good chance they might be, they will be getting skinned to the correct length so it looks factory.
i was able to locate some 1940 to 48 Lincoln convertible top iron sides today, year doesn't really matter since ill be customizing the top to flow how i pictured it.
The dash on my car was cut out and sold previous to me getting it and these dashs are fairly hard to find. luckily a few friends tagged me on a post on instagram and i found my dash but it 39. i really like the 39 gauge cluster and i think it will look nice when done. I got it all cut down and ready for media blasting and recently found a cherry original 39 cluster but did not come cheap. well worth it though
I’m lovin this
