Two inches; shows you don't have to whack the crap out of the top to get a killer profile!
your stance is coming along well, I really like it. Got your wheel/tire to wheel well set up well.
Thanks a lot

View his profile ^^^^^ Nice work............
Built for fun- Flathead, 5 speed, quick change, lot of vintage bling. Available.
Our 32 sedan as we bought it.
Some great Tudors, thanks for the inspiration for my project! I hope to have mine on the road this spring...
Just finishing up mine.... Need to finish some wiring and AC odds and ends, then get the hood and hood sides back on. Hope to be on the road in the next month or so! That's my Dad's stocker in the background. It should be done at some point this year as well.
Killer sedan! Looks like a lot of fun!
Stoked you dig it 51farmtruck!
Bought this one back in the summer and my brother and his wife beat me out of it.....kinda wish I had kept it....
Very nice sedan
I love the look
I saw your dad's 3 window at the show which is also very nice. All in the family!
Thanks Pewsplace, I appreciate the kind words! I have visited your site many times. My Dad was a fish out of water at the GNRS's! He so wanted his coupe to be outside with the rest of our buddies and not locked down in a building for 4 days..... The drive over to the show was the first time the car had been on surface streets for 10 years and the first real drive since the re-do. He is very happy with it and it sounds and runs killer! These cars will get a lot of miles put on them for sure! Here is a few pics of the coupe (sorry for posting coupe pics in a sedan discussion):
Lorenzini, WOW! Your dads 3w is stunning. A real nasty, bitchin, beautiful hot rod right there. Real hot rods all around in your family.
Lorenzini, Do you have any more pictures of your sedan? Some specs on it?
When I bought the car it had red steelies with most of the front end and rear end components painted red and the windshield and grill painted black.
Although a nice car, it was someone else's vision. I got rid of all the painted stuff and either polished, chromed, or painted (black) everything. The car had a 350/350 combo, which was replaced with a Ray Zeller built 383 with a dual quad set up, hunt magnito, Milidon gear drive, aluminum flywheel attached to a Tremec 600 5-speed. Al Simon built the 2.5" exhaust system, which I have not heard yet with the new stroker motor. Can't wait for the first fire up! The car had a 9", but the housing was bent, so we built a new 9" with a tru-trac 3rd member with 3:55's and Currie axles. I really wanted a quick change, but I didn't want to get into notching the fuel tank or messing with the cross member.
The E.T.'s came off of Bob Bauder's deuce roadster and I just recently replaced the rear knockoffs with flat plates and mounted Eric Vaughn era Real Wheels on the fronts that came off of Bob Rothenberg's 33' Willys. Since everything else got torn apart, we re-wired the car, put in a vintage AC system, and a Lime Works steering column. Amount other things, I found a NOS Stewart Warner tach that had been in a boat shop for 50 years that will finish off the column and match the other Stuart Warner gauges in the dash. Hopefully, we will get her all buttoned up in the next month or so and back on the road.
Here is the car just after paint with most of the exterior changes. About two weeks after this picture I tore it down to do the engine/motor swap (backwards build!). It's been down for more time than I want to admit!
A recent picture with flat plates in the rear, Real Wheels up front and the new drivetrain:

A few local cars.
Brisbane has some bad ass Tudors!
Here are a few photos of my long time friend's sedan. A long project (aren't they all) but the end result was worth the 15 year build. The chassis was built by Lobeck and he has a Winters QC in the back. Your dad's 3 window is super nice and I remember it being built many years ago when it was red.
Lynn, your buddies sedan looks great! Do you happen to have any more pictures of the rear end? I would love to see a better shot of the quick change.
Here are some more with QC's. Larry used a Winters which doesn't require cutting the tank. He moved the rear spreader bar back a little and can still change the gears. You can also modify your crossmember to work with coil overs. The others are with a model-A spring. I am old you know!
The last photo is another friend mine who is building a sedan with coil overs and a Winters. He used the JHRS $$$ bones. It can be done but would be a lot of work and noisy. I love the look.
My chassis originally had a V8 quick change but was replace with the 9" prior to my ownership. So a V8 would fit right back in there. With the HP I'm running now, I wanted to fit a Champ, which would have required modifications. The full fendered car with the coil overs looks beautiful underneath! Like jewelry!
I meant the full fendered car with the model A spring! Sorry...
