Projects 1950 Chopped Chevy Sedan Delivery

Discussion in 'Traditional Customs' started by RMONTY, Jan 15, 2016.

  1. I understand not making the job bigger than it already is. Wish I could do photo shop. I'd do it both ways for sure. My eye tells me with the adjusted Top height the stock quarter length would look very good with the Longer door. As it is the Stock door looks very short to the length of quarter in front of the rear fender. Have I told you yet that I don't think like Normal People? The plus is that you wouldn't need to shorten the SS belt line trim.

    You're contemplating exactly what I wanted to do with my old 50 delivery. I even went as far as finding one good tudor sedan door for the conversion. I believe the tudor doors will be a great improvement on your delivery. Just for kicks, take a look at a 36 chevy delivery. They used the longer tudor sedan doors from the factory and the look is out standing! I'd change those doors in a heartbeat. The chopped top will complement the long door/short quarter look. 36chevrolet-sedan-delivery-1936-1.jpg

    Much appreciated Chaz. I'm just a guy that enjoys putzing around out in the shop. I can see in my mind what I want the car to look like, and I think it's headed that direction.

    The weekend has been spent getting the 2 door donor set up so I can get it in and out of the shop as needed. Had to visit the used tire shop in order to get all 4 tires rolling, (couple of inner tubes was cheaper than used tires) and had to do a bit of ghetto fabbing. I didnt want to spend much time taking care of a missing leaf spring on the drivers side, and the missing rear shackle on the passenger side. The car can now be rolled easily by myself. That is a good thing. Here are a few pictures of the donor car. The engine compartment stuff is a bit rusty but in pretty good shape overall. I will use the inner fenders and vents, etc. I am thinking of smoothing the firewall as well. But thats on down the road a bit!
