    yeah,,,,i was actually thinking that the chop didnt appear to be as much as that
     
  6. That is the perfect chop to copy if you are going to hardtop it. That profile is perfect. Sam was a master.

    Remember, the door tops and meat around the windows are gone because it's hard-topped...
    This makes the window openings bigger that a comperable basic chop...
    I think the numbers sound about right. But that being said, most of the numbers surrounding Barris cars or cars Barris hi-lighted seem suspect to me...
    I think a lot of it was just marketting. And if the numbers on the litton car came from Barris, I'd question them because I don't think they even chopped that car.

    This might be one of those 'cut and try... repeat...' processes to get it right.
     
  8. The Buster Litton Ford is the most beautiful shoebox ever...imho.
