  1. You could almost make the car palatable with that wheelbase if you really wanted to get out the axe...

    Now this I love. It really works on this car, I'd love to see someone build this for real. Never had this thought occurred to me. Nice work James D.

    Those should be one of the easier ones to do a two door sedan conversion on by using 2 door doors,moving center post back and filling quarter etc. but then you would only have a 2 door 64 fairlane, so??? I like 2 and 4 doors of those pretty good.
    I drove a 2 door post/sedan factory burgundy, raised front and back with aluminum slots, (skinnys in front) for a time years ago

    @ The Moose: thanks - it does.

    @ Low Budget: that's what I told him in the 1st place but his answer was it would be just another replica of an iconic car (Thunderbolt). I'm also OK with the 4 door (dad had one in Israel in the 60s and I'm in the EU where we don't look down on 4 doors, lol) but, like I've said, if you have to modify it like he wanted, that bunched-up wheelbase does not work on any US-made car (unless it's a Crossley or an American Austin, but that's like saying "any small European/Japanese car").

  5. It´s not impossible to make something like this work, but wow....you'd be doing a lot of cutting....

    James D: that was another thing I've said. It will be a lot of cutting anyway you look at it, so why not try and make it something that looks factory...

    I think what James D is saying that by the time you make it look right you're right back to original. So put away the torch and go buy one.

    For sure. The guy (not me, lol) wanted to create a clown car originally, and I said more or less the same - if you were to take out the cutting disks, you might as well create something useful and not stupid looking. My idea was to simply convert to a 2 door post but he does not want "just another Thunderbolt replica" hence my original request. Oh: I think what James created is not a factory two door post if you look closely...

    You're right! For some reason I was reading it top to bottom. I was so blinded by the shortened version I couldn't see straight.

    Just out of curiosity can one of you guys show me what this would look like slammed to the ground? This one won't be touched but I'm really hoping to get another one and doing some cool stuff to it. IMG_4812.JPG

    Thank you! Haven't had it out all summer. It's just been a super busy summer with family stuff. Would like to paint it this year and that's the color combo it was born with... Regal Turquoise/India Ivory.

    Moose, can we do a little brighter white on the top and side trim inserts? Or, take the pic I attached, since it's better quality, lower it, and add the 5-spokes. Would probably give us a better pic. Thanks again!!

    Burgundy is also a good place to go, from red, if you decide not to go back to original, if you like:cool:
