    This is how the car looked when we found it..A lot of new metal on this one.Its easier to cut up a bad humpback than a coupe.The new floor is 3" higher up in the body.The frame has a 3" kick-up in the rear.The grille is tilted 1,5 " more than it is supposed to.

    Welcome!

    Awesome car! Have you got progress pics? I'm very curious!
     
  10. WOW!!! I'm even more impressed now that I see what you started with. I'm sure everyone would like to see the construction photos if you have them.

    I do have more pics at home...Going home in a week or something.This lookalike is 2.5 " longer in the trunk-area.I think that came out nice.Wasn't going to copy an original coupe.

    Wow. That car is down-right SEXY!
    Right-on.

    Not that it isn't enough already, but it really makes me want to see the other cars you posted in your bio (1932 Coupe, roadster, tudor, 1936 coupe and -40 coupe).

    Again, wow.
    Thanks for posting the pics and WELCOME to the HAMB.

    Some amazing graftmanship on that ex sedan. That has been a lot of metal shaping and perfectly executed.

    Thanks for posting it on the mainboard. And I agree we need to see more in progress photos.
