    I know it's been talked about quite a bit in the past. But I just wanted to get a fresh perspective on the subject of fiberglass bodies. If you were going to go out and purchase let's say a 30 tudor pheaton glass body,what company would you buy it from? As far as I know Gibbon is the only one that produces one ,but I haven't heard alot of positive comments about Gibbon products since the old man passed away. And I never see any steel tudor phaeton bodies for sale. Thoughts?

    If you want one, get a Gibbon...and if it is lacking in any way, fix it. I think you are right about Gibbon being the only producer of them. Do they still make them?

    This one belongs to my buddy, John ( A tub on here ). It's glass, and it is a super cool hot rod. If it were upholstered, it would be real tough to tell it's glass.

    You might check out" Westcots" for the body you want. I think they offered one in their
    catalog a few years ago.
