Well I found a cowl for a 33 coupe along with a 33 frame and a flathead v8. I was wanting to make a roadster pickup out of the coupe front cowl ,but I was thinking I could get a head start if I used roadster doors instead of having to fab a new set. I didn't realize the coupe and roadster cowls were that different? I know that the truck cowls are not the same but I think it would be cool to have a truck with a car cowl!

There was a '34 pickup with the car cowl, a Ute made in Australia.



Other than the windshield posts and the top of the cowl where the windshield meets it, I don't believe there is any difference between a roadster and closed car cowl. But of course that's quite a bit.

Yeah I am fairly new to the 33-34 body I have done extensive reaserch on 28-31 cars trucks etc. but thank you for the info much appreciated I feel like if I make it a roadster I can build a custom windshield frame.
I also feel as though the roadster doors will give me a sufficient start on my project the curved lower line is what I am worried about seeing as I do not have the tools to properly perform this modification. I have found a place that eels roadster rockers and doors I just want to be sure before I fork over the 1500 usd to buy the parts lol

DO NOT buy those parts until you have more confirmation than me! I have never thought about putting the roadster door on a closed car cowl, you never know there may be a difference in the shape, I don't think so, but the body line may be higher or something I don't know. You need to do more homework before you lay out the cash.

Thank you martinsr for the advice you are absolutely right I need to actually check a few out and do some more reaserch! I may just end up buying the tools I need to make the parts seeing as I could prolly do it with a good roller. I already own a planks hung hammer and an English wheel so I have a start lol. I feel like a stamped peice would be less hassle but if it has to be done by hand then so be it!
