    I know this has been posted before, but I thought some of you would like seeing one of the first assembled 'steel' 3 window bodys from SAR. The quality is incredible. I understand there will be 2 completed 'roller' in Louisville.

    Here some close up shots you asked for. The firewall has been recessed but there was a lot of effort to maintain the OEM styling integrity by integrating stamped features and using soft cotours as opposed to harsh cut & fold bends. Other than that, it is as close to a gennie body as you can get, in certain ways it is better quality. The fenders are just as nice. Finally you can get steel repro 33-34 fenders that fit without quartering them up!
    I want one too Drewfus....but I am like you, one dollar at a time.

    Okay, so now where are the Ito drawings that have surely been inspired by this little body?

    Broman,

    Thanks for the thought, but I can not take any credit for these gems, these are about as close to the genuine article as you can get. It is all about Ford Motor and SAR. I would love to have one of these!
    Here are some additional pics. Wouldn't it be great to have a pallette of quarter panels like these at your disposal?

    What a sight for sore eyes ! .. :):)
    SAR sure knows that there is NO substitute for High Quality !!

    BTW .. Belive the "Patina" stuff is from Brookville ( `32 -3W )
    SAR , or Brookville , Those guys sure do excellent work !!
    Very impressive !!

    Beautiful looking bodies. I'd take one of these over an original body in a heartbeat.

  12. Hey Chopt 34 where are you getting the pictures? I am surprised SAR doesn't have these up on the web site? They promised august delivery and it looks like they are going to come through. That is a kick-ass product. Thank you for posting.

    Before you go complaining about the price of one, just look at the money they have invested in all this sweet tin.

    i will take all the originals you guys dont want.:)
     
  19. I don't wanna brag or anything, but I'm on the list... :)

    In the top 10, I hope to have the body this fall. My frame and driveline was supposed to be ready by then, but I'm way behind ($ and time)...

    I get the photos directly from the man himself. I have been friends with Steve for a while.

    Congrats Oldstyle34coupe, man I am jealous.
     
  21. I better get the rest of my dough together. I have a deposit on body #3. I thought they would be close to August, but didn't expect August. Brookville is a great company also and putting out an equally nice product, but they have had my deposit for almost 21/2 years on their 3 window body. Thanks again for the photos.

    My buddy Steve wanted me to point out the reason the quarters from the SAR 34 3 window in this picture do not have any surface rust is due to the 'E' coating on the body panels. This coating is OEM rated and guaranteed for 10 years of no rust without paint on them!
