    I have a four door 1936 Chevy I bought some years ago, it´s a pretty easy puzzle that almost just needs to be assembled and painted. My own thoughts are chopping the top 4-6" and lower the car. I have searched the internet for inspiration, but cant really find any pictures of the model that I really like...

    I cant really figure out if I should build the car, or see if I can sell it and buy a model A. Are there any HAMB´ers that has a cool 1936 Chevy they would like to show me? :)

    I had a hard time finding 4-Door pictures, but here are some ones of 2-Doors with the look you would like, maybe. Just to give you some ideas on paint, ride height, etc. Also, another cool idea would be to make it into a Sedan Delivery, or something like that. Just a thought.

    Four doors should be restored!

    I think all these street rods just lose that old car charm. And you can't really do a trad '36 fou door cos they were just beaters back then. Restore it or pass it on. Rod a Ford.
    Just my opinion of course!

    I have had some of the same thoughts! And I would never build it like a street-rod but as I mentionend earlier as a mild hotrod, with only a lowering of the roof and the car itself and some other wheels.

    I have also thought about building it in to a Sedan Delivery, but I am not sure what to do with the trunkback. I think it will be a difficult job to build in a "backdoor" as the deliverys have! Im probably gonna build the car this summer. (If I dont sell it) The frame is painted and rolling and the body and fenders needs to be fitted and painted. Then there is the wirering, and some new wood in the doors. But all rust is fixed.

    I bought the car as my first hotrod project, because I fell in love with a chopped 37 Ford Tudor as a kid. But now I think its the model A tudor I really would like to hotrod!

    I have attached a photoshopped picture of how I would like it.

    I've given up trying to post a pic of my 36 but. A four door would be a bear to chop. My 2 door is chopped 3 1/2 and unless your looking to do something wild that gives a good look. And you can still see out.

    Can anyone tell me the value of a 1936 Chevy 4d compared to a 1930 model A 4d if they are in same condition?

  8. I would rather be different and build a model A because there is not that many model A's out there.

    It sounds interesting, do you have a link? Or you could send the picture to my email and I will resize it so it can be uploaded here!

  12. I was being sarcastic, build the 36. The easy way out would be a model A.

    Hey, Danska Drenge, ditch the '36 Chevy and get a Model A! I've had several of both during my lifetime, and the only '36 Chevy that ever really turned me on was a '36 coupe gasser. Every Model A that I've ever had has excited me, even the 4 doors.

    I have had my thoughts on a Model A the last two years, so if the trade seems fair then I' ll go the model A-way! :)
