Where are the updates?! This build is eating at me...
Just found this post & blasted through whole thing. Very concerned u in penn state & have no title. Very concerned u get title unless other plans as part of school project. Better check state laws & talk to someone to get good paperwork. Good luck
Not another title BS diversion!
I want to c the build also - but my warning can be ignored or taken care of without posting a word about it
Worst case i have a sedan title i will figure something out. I am far from needing a title. Tonight i started laying out the cut lines on the sedan and on the coupe. I plan to cut the coupe tomorrow and finish laying out rear of sedan. Check it out.
Go baby go! I'm not even on the edge of my seat, I'm jumping up and down!
I can see a fenderless salt flat or drag car there.
I, too, am very anxious to see this come together! You definitely have a lot of work ahead of you, though.
Thats a great undertaking! and somewhat balsy to put it on the lift in the first post
The coupe has been cut.
Yikes!!! I guess you have to break an egg to make an omelet. I'm sure it'll be great when finished. Keep up the good work.
Man I thought this one was rough
Sent from my XT1710-02 using The H.A.M.B. mobile app
Picked up two rough zephyrs today, a 36 coupe sedan and a 39 sedan.
Will they be blended, similarly?
I'm dying to see that coupe chunk melded into that sedan tub.
I plan on building the 36 coupe sedan. That car is #89 of 1814 made. I will use my 37 sedan roof and the 39 dash to make the 36 coupe sedan. I will then use the 39 rear fenders on my 37 coupe. Lots of work but a lot of parts have been located. It all takes time. Planning to cut the roof on the sedan in the near future. My coupe doors and trunk should be ready to go in the next couple weeks and then I can really get to working on it all.

That coupe sedan side profile reminds me so much of a Aussie ford sloper
Holy crap, more air than sheet metal
nice find, too bad it wasn't found a lot sooner!
That's what I thought too. A very attractive 2 door sedan
Keep at it bud.
BTW how far was your journey to grab the two latest Zephyr bodies?
That'll rub out...
I had them both shipped in one from Washington State and one from Upstate NY
hope to catch up soon
Let the bracing begin, I plan to get a lot done over the next few months stay tuned.
I recently pulled the suspension and purchased a frame table to do the conversion on. I am hoping to make some progress over the next couple months.
Looking forward to seeing the sedan cut to accept the Coupe rear. Is that spare on the sedan hinged to access the trunk or a help in changing a tire? Bob
Maybe I have missed it but I don't see a CarTronic or other electronic measuring system.
I have over 60 years I the collision industry and I-Car certified but every time I took the test they taught it to you in the morning and you had lunch then took the test in the afternoon.
I think the I-Car test is basicly to shield the insurance co. from any liability. Where as the ASE test you walk in the room and take the test without being prepped. I am certified in both
I-Car and ASE collision and paint as well as estimating. Know what's is included or not included in the repair is where the $$$ are. Read the P-PAGES. I firmly believe that the labor should be in Dollars not labor hours. The door goes up the hours go down and the Tec. gets less money for doing the same job. Sorry for being on my soap box. Frank
