Yeah...holding breath and turning as blue as her dress...
So, this is not my car, just one I found a picture of. However, I may be buying a 37 slant back and I always wondered what it could look like with a good angle chop and possibly tipping the slant forward?
I hope this is something like what you have in mind and I wont bore you with what you would have to do to make this happen because I'm sure you are already aware of what an undertaking it represents. If you have the tools and metalworking ability it could definitely be accomplished.(Look at what Cody Walls does on his build threads) It still has its stock wheelbase and most of the work would be with the top, fenders and doors and I'm sure the seat would have to get dropped way down. Sure would make something unique though
Man some great ideas for a Morrie guys.
Hadnt even thought about a three window. pretty cool - nice work bro.
Ohh thats cool and pretty spot on.
oh man I like that. So lets see. lower the front frnders. merge in the headlights. extending hoods trim. pancake the hood? narrow the front wheel arch. fade away fend fenders. - amazed you kept the old flop out indicators. lay the window screen back? ace chop. laying the rear window back and shifting it back so i guess extending the roof? nice flowinf rear fenders with great looking skirts. then some stainless trim along the bottom. oh and droping it to a way better ride height. what else am I missing?
oh i like that even the colour you picked.
man if I can tell you I like that even more than the one above.
god damn Genius my man.
Thanks! You guys knock it out
I think that just about covers all of the mods...I'm glad you like it!!
Here's a slightly less-labor-intensive version:
I meant some baby moons.
To be clear, I mean the car looks perfect the way it is (other than the bare centers). It came out wrong.
That's pretty good themoose, any way to make it not look reverse chopped? As in leave the height in the rear, angle the slant in and take the front down? Not sure if it's possible, maybe that is just the way it turns out? I have a picture in my head but not sure it's realistic...
Is it possible to convert the painting of the Ford of Mat Egan on my Ford but with the color of my roof (green) not orange !
I love the 62 comet.
Oooh, that will be cool!
I think the slant back '37 loses something with the chop. The rear slope is interrupted or something. I like the idea but just something a little off IMHO.
I would like to see the batmoble made into a wagon thank you
Would you be so kind as to show me what the attached interior would look like with the green section in red and the roll and pleat section in the gray with the rest staying white as shown? This is not my interior but I like the design and would consider doing something along these lines in my 58 Chevy Biscayne 2 door. Please and thank you in advance!
Thanks Moose, I appreciate that, it looks good!
Hard to understand what he's asking, but maybe he means to keep the flat back angle the same as stock. So, maybe lengthen the roof, or cut through the 1/4s & slide the whole roof/trunk lid forward?
If it wouldn't be too much trouble, could you reverse the white and gray on the seats?
Thanks, I think my first thought was the better looking way to go with them! And this shows how valuable being able to actually see what it looks like without spending the $$$ really is!
One Bratmobile served up.
One last request is that it is possible to keep my Ford wand and make me the same painting without the Buick wand style that there is on that of Mat Egan???
Thank you so you can themoose !!!!you do a great job!!!
Not sure what your asking?????
Keep the shape of the chrome side trim like his original? Guessing
OK I'll give it a try...
