Post Chevy Truck Chopped top 7 inches... :)

Has anybody chopped a 3 window 1948 Chevy truck top down 7 inches??

I just purchased a 48 Chevy truck with a 7 inch chopped top. It looks REAL good and was done by a body shop. The seat riser was taken out and seems to have head room to spare. I dont have anything in the cab right now (bare bones) to tell what kind of room i have. Most people chop 3 to 4 inches from the top?????????

I've got a good bed but you'll have to furnish your own blankets and pillows. Seriously sounds like a great find, good luck with it and Merry Christmas to you.

i chopped my 48 7 inches in the back and 8 1/4 in front and set it back on and with a seat im not gonna use but i just put it in to check head clearance and i think it came out of a older blazer and it still has all the latches and a tall seat riser on it and i barely have to bend over but when i go to get my permanent seat without a seat riser i will have plenty of clearance.

It's good to hear from somebody else who has an EXTREME chopped chevy truck!!!

It did't know what this truck would look like with a 7inch chop top until the other day i got my Pro's Pick bed and put it on.Then the whole picture came together and i think it looks great!!!!




I will try and post a picture??????
