    Can someone help me identify this fiberglass body. It appears to be ‘34 Ford but with earlier windshield and later top. 4DC4B9BC-144E-4E3F-B0A7-1004AD14354D.jpeg B7A59E4B-BB5A-4625-8CA8-0F6B75E9A648.jpeg 39FAD3F5-6000-48EE-8D12-DB3BA56F1CF4.jpeg 3AB794AC-9431-47CE-8805-1254F72F9EAD.jpeg 425A2F32-15B0-48B6-B0DA-97203F505617.jpeg F1A11C84-EBF2-43F9-996F-221888B92F8C.jpeg 4DC4B9BC-144E-4E3F-B0A7-1004AD14354D.jpeg B7A59E4B-BB5A-4625-8CA8-0F6B75E9A648.jpeg 39FAD3F5-6000-48EE-8D12-DB3BA56F1CF4.jpeg 3AB794AC-9431-47CE-8805-1254F72F9EAD.jpeg 425A2F32-15B0-48B6-B0DA-97203F505617.jpeg F1A11C84-EBF2-43F9-996F-221888B92F8C.jpeg It is a one piece body with no latter modifications, it was manufactured this way.
     
  2. Even though I've never seen that body style, that strongly resembles a Street Beast body. The Street Beast (also known by other names) mostly made full fiberglass 34 Ford replicas. I say replicas because nothing is interchangeable with a real 34 Ford.

    Definitely a Street Beast Cabriolet body. Here's another one, but without the top. They were known to be exceptionally poor quality, with non-removable fenders and other panels molded in.

    Now that really has some possibilities for a builder with an imagination who is willing and able to think 'outside' the box. Hotrodding is all about creativity. Something this place seems to have forgotten lately Restoring is like putting IKEA together but with better instructions. Hotrodding is like designing the stuff IKEA copies.

    Yeah, until you see a finished one in person... at night... when it's raining... and you forgot your glasses...
    To each their own, but I remember seeing a finished one on display at the airport years ago. The bright lights made it look much worse than the pics I'd seen before.

    Might be a good base for a custom.

    Horrible quality and near zero resale value!
