I was hoping to start this thread a while ago but my plans changed so many times up to now it was probably better that I didn't. Let me explain but it is a bit of a story … Several years ago I bought a 5-window project with a body that would need a lot of work to save it, along with many misc parts. Seems the top was replaced by a 4-door version massaged to look like a 5-window top. Anyway, I was in to it and started collecting parts to do the best I could with it as it was - it could be done, but it would just take me a while. I planned for the Buick nailhead that came with it, a nice, narrow 9", dropped front axle - just a driver. That was plan one .... A year or so goes by and now UPAC comes along and I can get all the parts I need to bring this baby back to a much more original 5-window state. So, plan 2 is to use UPAC parts - I start to list and add up all the UPAC parts I need and the numbers start to mount. I'm beginning to wonder if I really want to tackle a 7 year build at this point in my life. I all ready have a 40 Ford pickup in the works and a 28 pickup in the wings after that. So, why not use a complete UPAC body? So, I start to work on plan 3, check out the UPAC body at the TRJ, see what comes with it. Again time and money begin to add up – no glass, window risers, paint, interior, firewall, other items, and then there’s the time. I am not adverse to the cost – just not sure whether the end result would be what I really wanted in either case regardless of the time. Don’t get me wrong – it’s a beautiful body but just not what I really want. That’s when my present plan came up – find as close to an original body with most all of what was missing in the UPAC body and at the right price. Now where the hell am I going to find that? And how am I going to pay for it?
