    just read a thread about a guy turned a sedan into a coupe , and I seen old cars turned into pickups , so I got to wondering has anyone ever taking like a old pickup from the 30's or 40's and turned it into a three window coupe, I allways thought that might be kind of cool, thanks for reading guys

  3. Sure, have at it.
    Here's some teasers out of 35 or so pages. But it's a 5 window.

    IMO... the toughest thing will be the cab back to tulip panel... most trucks are almost flat across the back, the coupes, roadsters and cabbies have a mild arch across the back...
    with a '30-'31 model A, I would leave most of the tulip panel with the quarter's roof and graft it into the truck's cab where it fits best...
