    T-bird restorers hate those fiberglass replacement hardtops that were made for the 55-57 T-birds, they can be had in great shape for a couple hundred bucks. I'd cut the roof off of this one, leaving the windshield posts in place, and replace it with a removable T-bird style top. The rest of the car is neat looking, but the roofline is really an abortion.
     
  9. Were they trying to make it into a Nash Metropolitan?

    Yecch.

  11. They have got to be kidding. No wonder they're selling it.
    You're right, it could have been a bitchin' Merc version of a Ranchero. I would have dug that. I'm surprised, now that I think of it, I've never seen one before.

    That's a great idea!

    I had a '64-Ford-Falcon-Futura-Hardtop-Hand-Painted-Silver-With-A-Brush that I'd gotten the big idea that it would be killer as a beach ride - you know, cut the top off and drive it. Problem was:

    1) I live in Michigan, and;
    2) The idea came to me after one too many beers.

    I'd somehow convinced myself that I'd be able to cut the top and re-attach it at will...Beer will do that to ya sometimes.

    After mentally noting cut lines, I went into the house to retrieve the saw. Thank GOD I passed out before following thru on that cockamamie idea...

    Looks like the owner of the comet has a much higher tolerance for alcohol than I did.

    I know where one of those tops is availible for about $200 if you're interested. It's light enough to take off with one person.

     
  15. Hey! lets chop a car...but not the normal way, and lets make it really ugly too...:eek: :eek:

    though i wouldn't mind the Jensen Interceptor mk.3 in the back round!!!
     
  16. Here's basically what I was thinking- Comanchero. Making a car into a pickup doesn't seem to turn out very well, though I do have a Rustchero I could mess with before it goes to the smelter.

    Thanks,
    Kurt
