Little biased here but I think that the 3 window looks best - unchopped with fenders
5W. Chopped hiboy. With a hood.
Three window for sure
Now...if it was a 33-34 I'd take a 5 window.
Well if it was my choice i would take the 5 window, and build a Milner replica car.
She looks good now but what about at age 79. Think of the body, frame and engine work it would take to keep her looking that nice.
Wow. This question sucks. Good one J'bomber. Since you said I could have it my way I have a plan for a steel 3W that I've never told anyone about. I can see it in my head and I think it would be one of those cars you never forget for all the right reasons. Then again seeing the comments earlier in this post is making me think about what my plan would look like on a 33 3W. That way I could have the one I really like most, the5W. Damn it, now I gotta sketch it in a 33. No, I'm not sayin what it is except that NOBODY has ever done it.
So my 5W would be a mild chop, full fendered, no hood sides, Caddy or Olds power, classic stance done more with tires than suspension. It would have to be an early drag race look but clean and finished with lots of kandy or pearl, off white upholstery and lots of chrome. As I bang on this keyboard I'm thinking dark blue with pearl over it and a white top insert. Now if my plan looks shitty on a 33 I reserve the right to change my mind.
I like my 5W but I like 3windows too...
wow your coupe looks great with the different color wheels and bias plies
i like 3 and 5.. i want my cake and eat it too yours lookd good too dererlic
If I HAD to choose I would take the 5 window. Personally I think the fiberglass cars have killed any desire of mine to own any 32 except a cabriolet...
If i could afford on i would take a five window in a heart beat. for now the sedan is keeping me in the hot rod game. If i hit the lottery this is what i will build.
The best looking car the shop has yet to build, just a mock up.
138 5w 114 3w
3w fo sho!! Chopped, little tires up front, biggies in the back and powered by a blown elephant. Been my dream ride since I was old enough to say " oh ya".
I voted once already for the 5W.... Here's a couple more pics..
I'm still waitin' on my pal to email me more pics of her..
Is there a prettier car in the universe than this??????? 5 window!!!!
I would choose a 3 window. No fenders, flathead powered with a quick change rear end out back.
Looks like raw gold!!!
That's a huge statement knowing what comes out of Custom Auto.....
So that was just a photoshop of the roadster you built or....?
I want at least one of each..But if I had to choose between the two, I would keep the five window......I do not like how If you are standing in front of a 3 window looking at it from the firewall to the doors the cowl bow's way out...the design doesn't really fit the frame all that well, almost like the body is too big for the frame. And quarter panels are kinda too flat on the top, where as the 5 window has a nice curve and fits the frame nicely......i do prefer the suicide doors of a 3 window. But that is just my opinion......Now when it comes to the 33-34 the 3 window is perfect and wins that contest hands down...LOL
Three window definitely. Imo, I'd rather get an A and save the cash than a Deuce five window. And even with a Model A, you can do something along the lines of what Bass did with his coupe.
Three window definitely!! With a good outside finish.
I love 5's...
I vote 5 window. Jive Five is my favorite.
