    We have a 1929 Ford Closed cab Pickup body that is severely pooched.
    Is it worth thinking about cutting the top off, and grafting it to a Brookville RPU body? will the doors fit? or, are there repop panels available??:confused:

    i would think you could find another closed cab for way cheaper than buying a brookville

  4. The RPU and closed cab bodies are different dimensions; would require lots of cutting and likely wouldn't wind up looking "right" in the end.

    I am also looking for the window and lower cab panels. I bought the back corner and t strips from Howell on ebay and also ordered the lower but never received it and now I am unable to find the middle 2 panels anywhere. Maybe someone has a set of these for sale
