    ralph....sadly not mine..just a pic I found elsewhere on the Hamb.
    I could never find any more info on the car..though someone on here must know it.
    It does it for me.. very nice stance & chop... I would guess around 6"

    these are all about 3-1/2 chops, the top once is just a strait chop, the other two prob have 1/4 to 3/8 more wedge or there abouts in the front, bottom one was chopped some where abouts 1954/1955, bottom one might be 3-3/4 chop but i was pretty sure it was 3-1/2.

    How is this chop acheived without laying the A pillar back? Looks great!

  26. Stretch the roof! Weld in a piece of steel about 1" depending on how much you chop.

    Well yea! in my mind I was thinking the drip rail hadn't been changed in that pic, but that makes sense and I'm sure it has.

    I leaned the posts on my 3.5 inch chop but years ago I took my body man a 4 ft section of drip rail that he has cannibalized to stretch the top on many 32 chops

    Baron, I love the chop on the gray primer coupe . They chopped my coupe 2 days ago, waiting for the photos. I will post them as soon as I get them.
