    Why? Seems like you could find someone to trade bodies. There are folks looking for sedans. But the nice thing is you can do what you want....be watching.

    I know this one is a mix of parts and is more '32 than 33/34 but was definitely built with 33/34 Tudor sedan doors and some sedan roof pieces. I haven't found a thread on it but if there is one I'd love to see where all the cuts were made.

    And this is where I left off on my 33 4 door sedan to coupe project, I found some workable quarters to use but now I might have a line on a cleaner '34 sedan body so I might upgrade and sell this project off, not sure yet.

    The '34 would get the same coupe conversion treatment, it's just a bit nicer body to start with, and even if I do get it, I'll tidy up this '33 and get it into one piece before I sell it off.

    I'd be interested in hours, but even more so where all the cuts are and any measurements you can share. I think the Tudor conversion will be more work than the 4 door to 5 window but should be well worth the effort.

    And if there's any sedan fans out there who'd like to trade me a coupe body as was suggested before the '34 gets cut up, I'm here! Seems a little unlikely though.

    I'm following this thread, am also interested in cut-location, & how the rear qtrs get done - esp if you don't use oem or repops. (Thinking of future project, for which there are virtually NO coup/roadster/cabriolet rear qtrs).

    We will be making what we don't have from scratch. We could buy SAR rear quarter panels,decklid etc but that wouldn't do us any benefit for phase 2 as we would still need jigs. So we might as well make them in the first place.
    We do have a line on an original un chopped 3 window to pattern off, hoping this comes off.

    I made a closed cab pickup from a 34 Tudor to have the swoopy passenger style cab ,fenders and grille . Is always fun to watch someone do something similar.
