    Absolutely! As soon as I find my old 9-iron. Maybe a 3-wood will do it? :p:D

    Looks great! I like the idea of matching the wheel color to the interior.

  3. Nice! I like it the way it is. Maybe shorten the tail pipes a bit and an early looking steering wheel. Otherwise drive that sucker!

    In researching the difference in body style details between coupes, roadsters and cabriolets, it appears that the car is actually not a coupster, but rather a chopped cabriolet. Thanks for pointing it out, Mr48Chev.

    Its a real nice build lots of work went in to her but the thick door rails and square windshield are buzz killers for me . I wish I could of seen it in its coupe dress./..

    So Ford never made a coupster, did they? It was just a Coupe with the top cut off, and made into a Roadster, Right?

    Your right the Hotrodders and Jalopy Racers modded them. Some were quite well done others not so.

    I think alot of them retained the windshield posts of the coupe similar to the cabriolet...but yes some reworked the cowl to accept roadster accessories as well as reworking the doors and areas behind doors and seat.
