    Heres my 500$ 1934 ford sedan that will be converted into a radically chopped 3 window .....thanks Mr Gene. I just started to learn gas welding so this will be the perfect project to learn on. Feel free to give advice or tips

    Tough part will be the belt line that wraps around to the panel above the deck lid

    '35 trucks doors used a garnish moulding, '36 -'37 trucks had the garnish stamped into the door's inner skin...

    Cool! I'll be following. You got a great deal for 5 bills!
    A lot of your work will be making the turret of the roof look Coupe like-leaning it and taking the "bubble but" out of the Sedan shape, but you know this from your 5/w conversion.
    Door frame shape and Sedan rear window shape won't be such an issue with a severe chop.

    If needed the beadwork between the rear window panel and the panel above the deck is the same for '33 - '34 coupes and '35-'36 trunkbacks... Is a little short but you can add length to the flat section... it converts the vertical window to the horizontal trunk panel...
    also a '35 - '36 truck's roof above the w/s from hinge to hinge will patch a '33 - '34 sedan / coupe... HIH... go blindowl go !

    Sloppy jalopies, I find your knowledge of early Ford's seemingly limitless.
    I wish I could hang out in your garage...

    Looks like a good build to follow, clean all the to be welded areas before you fire up the torch. There was no MIG or TIG in the old days.;)Bob
