Based on the other builds you've posted here this will be great to watch. Bob
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.
let's get this party started! hold on..........
This makes me sick!!!! Sick with envy for such skills! I'm in...like we say...takes a real man to cut one up!!!!

Good find, that's a shame about pics,anyway of getting them back?
Plus 17k in the trade?
Here we are now, entertain us! (or for those that are more Sinatra than Nirvana... I'll be eagerly watching)
Subscribed and looking forward to more.
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.

You've come this far, it'll be a shame if you move on,looks great. Thanks for the info, the finished car looks awesome
I'll be watching... cool project!

As this is not a customers project,I will log and post the hours taken to build if anyone is interested.
I'd be interested in that for sure.
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.
Just found this !! Watching with envy ............
I'll be posting everything picture wise ,just like the 32 sedan lakester a while ago.
First off ,cleaning up the body before we get to the conversion.
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.
This is going to get Good...
Jigs? As doing this over and over?
Just twice in phase 2
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.
[QUOTE="oldolds, post: 12058163, member: 127493" I always thought I might like a long door truck.[/QUOTE]
Been there done that. A lot of work but rewarding.
I plan on doing something similar- subscribed!
I'm definitely going to learn as much from this thread as I can so that I can get on with my project......UK 37 four door sedan to cabrio project.
