Not that unique to us! With 2 doors getting hard to find we have found these are still affordable and Hot Rodable. We chop everything and anything The cool thing is the kids can still experience old tin, and big horsepower.

He decided on a 3 1/2" taper chop, retaining the only curved glass, the rear window. We cut in a 40 ford roof with the front peak. It gives it a little something. The front doors were streched 6 inches and the rear doors shortened 6 inches. the rear passanger door was lost in the transformation and never found again. He also pied the hood 1.5 inches, relieved the front wheel reviel 2". welded VW headlight rings on the body. With removable buckets from inside. And a ton more that I dont remember. I think I will get him involved with this forum and let him discuss it further. He Z'd the frame and put a 318 with auto trans, Valarie clip,and Jag rear end in his beast.
