Looks like it could use just a little off of the top....
I hate to say don't hotrod that car, but don't hotrod that car.
what is it?
I would hate to ruin the back of the cab. That would make a unique Hotrod,but I would try to maintain the integrity of the original car. DON"T CUT IT UP!
Thats a pretty kool find....
dont cut it up keep it original
That car is way to clean and cool to chop! Please don't!
NO.... leave it be
Dont cut it up!!!! Its way cooler the way it is!!!!
dont cut its a true lady leave her,dignaty alone.
Yeah man go go go!!!!!
Are those 12 spoke spindle mounts front and rear??? HAHA
k so what is it. it looks like a curvy Model T.
What the heck is it, it looks HUGE! I like the 10 spokes on the front. No, don't cut that thing up, whatever it is.
that is one big ass car...check the compairson to the guy at the tailgate...large marge for sure...no chop,just chrome them rims..
Leave her alone, she doesn't need a haircut.....
Is it just me or does that thing look like it's the size of a small yacht??
Would make one hell of an aquarium.... Fill it up with water and tropical fish......
Don't chop it. Absolutely make it a Hot Rod, but no chop. It has a sort of 'Rat fink cartoon' proportion that makes it super cool
HELL NO!!!!!!!!!! That is a Woods electric coupe body on a Stanley Steamer chassis, some might say it was an early Hot Rod.
Thats way cool.....
Oh, and step away from the Sawzall...
I really hope you're kidding!
More pics please...
I believe the owner is a HAMB member, there are a lot of shots of the car on the web, it was once part of the Barney Pollard collection in Detroit.
I agree with my brother HAMBers. It's a gem and butchering it would be a crime against the past. Keep the top as is. If you need inspiration check out the "T" sedan John Buttera built --- that is pure class. Yours, whatever it is, has the uniqueness of a time long gone, that will never be again, that hangs on in the very lines. It's like the coach the Royalty ride in to their coronation --- like a sculpture by one of the masters. Need I say more? Resto-rodded it would be marvelous dahling. Simply mahhhvelous. Butchered up, it would be "What the f--- you do that for?
Aw hell someone should at least play with it in photoshop!
Another view. And i vote NO. It's got neat funky proportions.

I'll chirp in with my 2 bits............don't chop.
