    Now that we shift into 'Family Sized Rods' will moredoors become the new unaffordable vehicle?
    With coupes and roadsters actually become affordable???"(Tongue in cheek)
    I've always like the accessibility with the extra door (s)
    Nice car that will hold it's own today

    I smiled to myself looking at the car that was the pinnacle of a show car then (when I would have seen the original magazine article in the 60's I would have been in love with the car) but now I found myself asking, why is the car sitting so high, the rear axle is too wide, the top radiator hose was a "will fit". I just need to appreciate the car and the abilities of those fellows that built it before we had wire welders and plasma cutters in every home shop:)

    What a neat old ride. It's got that early Lodi Nationals look I remember as a kid.

    I can just see it idling through Bob's Big Boy at night....roadsters, coupes and other sedans pulled up in their parking spaces..60s music blaring from car speakers. Oh yeah..

    Green hot rods with four doors are lame Joey, especially when they have fog lights!

    Hope this isn't too new for the spirit of this thread. A favorite 4 door of mine.

    Nothing wrong with 4 doors. Looking for one for the next project. Now, with kids and grandkids, makes a lot of sense.

    I dig it! Hopefully mordors will start getting more respect as the younger generations become involved.
    I have a 33 Fordor that is getting the mid 60's treatment. It will be metalflake blue with metalflake silver fenders and as much chrome as I can afford.

    Within the last year or so, at of all places a Hundai dealership here in Everett, Wa. in their enclosed/rotating carousel, was an almost identical green 4 door. I don't remember the price, but it was way out of my range. The older the car, the less important the number of doors. Even some new performance cars are based on 4 door sedans. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    If it's built right, it can look good no matter how many doors it has....like it!
