Chopping A 51 2-door Sedan?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by MR_WIMONE, Sep 24, 2006.

  1. Bill Hines And A Few Others Chopped A 51 In A Recent Mag Of Ol'skool Rods, And I Have One But I Wasnt Impressed By The Way A 51 Sedan Looks When Its Chopped, Is There Maybe A Wrong Way Or A Right Way To Chop A 51 Sedan? I Know Fast Back Looks Real Cool But A Sedan Has Just A Way Different Look..

  2. '51 Ford Fast Back????????

    I thinkMr himes did a chevy in that particle. Will mad respect towards and his insane talent. I think the top looks too flat and doesn't flow very well. His craftmanship was and incredible as usual, but who ever decided the roof line must have had left over shroom pizza for breakfast.

    Assuming for a moment that we all don't study Ol Skool Rodz with every passing moment, is this dude talking about a ford or a chevy?

    hi just wanted to say each car has its own lines every chop is different but on a 51 ford i think this is a good example of a chop that doesnt take away from the cars look. 512.jpg

    a girl told me one time the lower i go the more it will cost me :eek: ..................a 5'' chop on a two door in primer/flat black no paint runs about 2000-2500--and if you are going to paint it 3000-3500 plus paint cost. thats just me some are cheaper some are more. and hambers get a break:D $$$$$

    It's most doable, lots of work, but doable. The sail panel area will take the
    most work, on a fordor, to pull it off. You may wanna look into the fordor-
    ta two door route on this one.
    Go to the archives section under chops, here on the HAMB.....there have
    been pictures of fordor chops featured. In a pinch, study the Mercury four-
    door chops for ideas on problem solving.
