Still undecided weather to chop my coupe. What do you guys think.
I like it just the way it is. Dick.
I wouldn't chop it . I'd get rid of the four bar's maybe.
I like chopped,,,,say 4''. But that's me.
Chops are cool but the way that car is done I wouldn't, it's perfect. If you do chop it I will never talk to you again!
I have removed the front 4 bar and added a hairpin. As for the rear I am planning on removing the 4 bar but I am not gonna do it till winter.
That's a bad ass coupe. I wouldn't chop it.
I like it just the way it is
i would not chop, it looks really nice as is.
Send it t me...I'll enjoy it while you ponder your decision....leave it alone
Chop, yes, but not that car. That car is sweet. Time to build another and chop the new car. I wouldn't do any thing to your car except drive the wheels off it!
Leave her as is - looks great.
super cool coupe. would be much cooler chopped!
Good looking traditional hotrod! At my age I don't bend very well, so a chopped car is really not an option. You might look down the road to being an old fart who still likes to drive a hotrod.
Looks good as is
My vote is NO chop for whatever it's worth...
I like everything chopped But your A looks just right. I did chop my A sedan back in the day and I liked it better chopped but it was full fendered and I was going for a more hot rod look from a resto rod that I first built. FYI I took 4-1/2"'s out of her. Again Your coupe looks good as is. And that is saying something coming from me.
Build a chopped clone.
That's a very cool model A as is but there's nothing that compares to riding around in a chopped model A.. I'll never own an unchopped "A" again...
Looks great like it is--no chop on this one.
like it like it is no chop
Leave it like that,I've had several chopped cars over the years but now I prefer to leave the top the way Henry built them. HRP
I agree that the 4 bar set up is too" street rod" I had 40 radius rods on the 30 coupe I sold last summer. If you are tall then stock height may be good I am 6"5" and I was planning a 2 1/2-3" max chop but that was in my opinion just enough. I also like the look of rolled side pans to hide the offset of the sock A frame to the outside edge of the body. Just one man's opinion The car does look nice as is.
I would not mess with that car go drive it!
leave it as is
No on the chop, But if you are going to drive the car a lot, The 4 bar works very well, better steering, control, and ride. If that's what you are after!
A 4" chop would be perfect.
That is what God made a Sawzall for. It's cool now, cooler chopped.
I do keep my Sawzall idling at all times just in case!
