Question is it gonna be cool

I'm loking for some input on my project. It's a 54 4 door belair. It's got a 461 chev. with a 871 bds blower, 400 tranny,9" rear w/ detriot locker, 4 wheel disk brakes.
My question is, will my car be cool for showing even though it's a 4 door or should I do some radical disection and make it a two door. Any input as to other cool body mods will be taken into consideration as well. thanks

Cool

It sounds cool, but a 2 dr would be cooler!There not easy to make into a 2 dr, you have to lenghten the front doors, can't just weld up the back one.If the car has a center post it's really a job then!
Theres nothing wrong woth a 4 dr, makes it easy to pile all you buddies in!

Nobody thought my 69 Buick Skylark was gonna be cool back in '84. Cars of choice back then, GTO's, Camaros, Chargers, Mustangs, etc.. Of course they thought different after I cut the quarter panels, painted her canary yellow, and painted some red and orange flames on her. I built her 'cause I thought it would be cool not because I knew everyone would like her when I was done. There were some that still didn't understand and thought I should have picked a more popular car. Oh well!

I'd say you had a pretty good "sleeper" going there! Leave it the way it is. Just pay particular attention to detailing. Imagine how it would be if all the rods were two-doors....boring

Being the driver of a Studebaker station wagon..... I say diversity is the key. Four doors are often over looked, but with what you have done to the drive train, I don't think that will be the case with yours. A cool car is a cool car, no matter how many doors it has

The question is, is the car cool to you? It doesn't matter much what other people think as long as you like your car and are happy driving it. I personally like the idea of a sleeper, but another cool thing would be to put air bags on it!!
