body swap.

It still had the decals on the radiator support, and hoses, wires every where, Hotrods are supposed to be easy to work on, but he was a GM pro. I saw another body shell swap at Paseo Robes a few years ago, before the show moved, We did that over 50 years ago , We put an olds Rocket engine, trans, rear and cut down instrument panel in a 36 chevy coupe. ran it for a couple years, then found a 31 chrysler body. We cut the IP loose, laid it on the floor, left the chevy floor in place and cut off the coupe shell. We lowered the roadster body down, trimmed the floor to channel it, trimmed the instrument panel again, a real unfinished Rat rod roadster, bullet holes. patina paint.
