    Anyone ever used a donor car to fill the roof of a 30/31 ford coupe? If so, what car/year did you use?
    thanks

    We installed a late 60's Chevelle turned backwards in a 28/9 coupe once. Would probably work well in a 30/1 also. The front of the Chevelle roof where it's curved over the windshield fits nicely on the back of the coupe roof.

    Might even be able to order up a brand new repro skin if you can't find an original in a yard.

    Find somebody good with an English wheel and they can make one, save you from rambling through the junkyard. Good luck.

    I just used the rear half of a 2007-2013 Impala to fill my Chevy coupe. Might be close enough to yours. It fit prefectly!

    I can't believe no one stamps them out now.

    Lester Codd and I 'nibbled' the roof off a '69 Buick wagon, before Moomjean sent it to the crusher.
    Some trimming, and the curve was just perfect.

    I thought Jonathan W was a interesting topic, he used a Gremlin car hood.
    As bad as that sounds, he actually had room for a 3rd brake light.
    The choice is yours. If you are trying to do a full resto and sell it for a full price ... good luck.

    If you trying to build it to drive it, you will have a lot more fun out of life.
    Used metal rather it be a 70's chevy or a 60's rambler, that is your new top.
     
  13. Vega wagon (if there are any of those left)...the roof has ribs that were the perfect length for a coupe.
     
  14. 07 Dodge Caliber worked on my truck, should be close on a coupe, it is a really low crown.
