This is perfect!! Great job.
ct,whos coupe is the 7 in chop black hemi powered?
Not sure Quinton, I'll have to see if there's some another photo I have saved with the info on it. That is your style though, for sure.
great photos and info if you all want why dont we include wheel and tire size and the amount of drop both front and rear and how much channel if it is.
it's a great thread for someone looking for a certain look and stance!!!!
thanks for all the posts so far! VERY VERY HELPFUL
Here is the thread that shows my client's 31 model A chopped about 2.5 inches
3 inches, no channel
Cool car, not an "A" though.
This is my 30 Pickup with a 5" chop.
This little car looks killer!
Very conservative and clean!
Thanks for all the pictures and replies! Very helpful!
Im 6'2" and the 3 1/2 chop was right , you would'nt think so but, another 1/2 would of been too much...
What will you be using for a seat? Stock?
Here is 2.75" on my coupe:
4" on mine. I'm surprised Ryan's coupe is only chopped 2 3/4"
I think Ryan's coupe proves a point. Chopping the crap out of a car (for the most part just to be a bad ass) ruins the end result if practical use is the goal. His car is just "right" on so many levels. Must have something to do with those Tardel folks knowing their way around a hot rod.
Dang..i can't wait to cut my top on the sedan...plan is 4 and 4.5 in rear, keeping as much of the rear window as i can.
Not a H.A.M.B. Friendly car.....but here is my '30 fordor with 6" chop, 6" front "z" and 18" rear "z"..body channeled 3"
I'm pretty sure I have a man crush now. Excellent car!
Ryan's coupe is all of Bad Ass but i have to say Mr. Casny I wouldn't be kickin that one out of my garage if it were in there. Both very nice machines
my 29 tudor chopped 7.5 inches and channeled 3 inches
Stock Seat Height ......still have to crouch to look under visor for Signals at Stoplights.......
This is the one of finest examples of period perfect A's.........Like others have said though, still looks deeper than a 2.75 cut...
OK I'll play too. Mine's 5 1/2 inches with a 3 inch channel.
Here's my tudor with a 6" chop. Like Glen said in an earlier post, I wouldn't go that far again. I'm 6'1" and it's really hard to see traffic lights the closer you get to them. I have to sit in the rear passenger footwell to make it comfortable which meant I had to have a really long steering shaft and a removable wheel. If I ever get a coupe 4" would be my max.
we'll i finally decided on 4 1/2" chop NO channel
here is a picture of it. thanks for all the posts it really helped me decide.
i'll send some other pictures later.
4 1/2 6
here are some others of ours 4 1/2" chop.
still working on it.
