    Looking for some insight on the best 5 window fiberglass body for a traditional hotrod. I do want an original type firewall, cowl vent, prefer a functional rear window and not more than 3" chop. The Russ Normore and New Age bodies both have their good points. Do any of you have any experience with either bodies? Any help would be appreciated. Bill
     
  2. Have done both, won't ever do another Russ Nomore.
    Ed @ New Age builds the best out there.
     
  3. X2 what 34Guy said. Good folks to deal with. New Age is good stuff, Ed's a stand up guy who'll treat you right.

    I've owned both...............Top Notch cars.......have no complaints with either......but at Louisville last year I looked at a Be-Bop '32 5 window....they now install original drip rails as an option....and the doors are thinner on the edge...thick door edges are the dead giveaway for glass cars......I'd build any of the 3 without a second thought...but I'd really check into the Be-Bop...I really like the original drip rails.............Yellow car in New Age and Red car is Russ no More.....the yellow car was sold to John "Rocket Man" Paxon a few years back and he's put about 60,000 miles on it since I sold it to him...he loves it................ IM000906.jpg P1010156.JPG just my opinion

    I've seen fresh off the delivery truck bodies from both and I think you would be happy with either one. That said, I think the New Age, which has true drip rails, would be my choice.

    No experience with Be Bop.

    I would certainly consider the United Pacific steel body. Do a price comparison. The difference may not be as much as you think and it will hold it's value better.

    Wow, Im suprised this thread came up again, as it is pretty old.
    I decided on a New Age Motorsports body a few years ago.
    I am really happy with the quality.
    Hope to have it in final paint next month.
    Thanks for the all the input.
    Heres some pics when I got it.

    Dennis and Matt of Ionia Hot Rod Shop fabricated the chassis and will be powered by a 49 Ford Flathead.

    Looks great! Ionia put the frame together on my '29 with '32 rails as well....they do fantastic work.
