    Kev,
    That is the best (A Pillar) post position that I have ever seen on any chop. And heaven knows how much I dig Model 40's. Most Excellent Job Well Done!!!!!!!!

  6. I talked to Greg a few weeks ago and he told me the coupe is on hold while he does a car for his dad (57 Ranchero?). He is a busy guy, he has also built a nice home shop since the chop.

    Kev, did you ever do a thread on the other 5 window with the short doors? Was it ever finished?

  9. I doubt we will see anything Shiny. I did use a lot of pointers when my buddy and I chopped mine if it will make you feel any better. IMG_1903.JPG IMG_1906.JPG IMG_1907.JPG

    IMG_3899.JPG Some folks have asked for an update on the 34. It has been very slow going as I have completed a few other cars and added three kids to the family. On the 34 I made the door gaps perfect by adding or deleting metal. I built frames for the front and rear firewall and hung pedals. I collected a bunch of missing parts including a mint grille and original halibrand four-window mags for the rear. .
    I recently put the motor in and fired it up. Its a SBC with a Mooneyham 6-71 on an old Cragar manifold and Camel-back heads. The car will still have the T-56 6 speed gearbox and a 9inch rear. I had plans to build this to run at El Mirage but believe I will just build a street car out of it and drag race some of the local nostalgia events. The tech requirements for SCTA would add a couple years to the build at my pace, and I'm not sure the delay would be worth the pay-off for me.

  14. Car looks amazing, Greg. I followed that whole chop when Kev was doing it. Always dreamed of owning a 33-34. Looks like it's finally gonna happen next week.
