I was seriously thinking of making a gasser out of the other 48 ply or possibly a chopped roadster type thing with no sheetmetal on the front end..It'llbe awhile anyway, so I got time...I really want to chop it though ,I'm leaning towards the gasser but I dont think it would look right with a chopped top ,I dont think anyways,maybe i'll try it and see ..You ever see a gasser with a chopped top??? Hmmmmmm...
Yes, I've seen several chop top gassers, but NHRA had limits on how far you could chop them (2"-3" if I remember right) so they aren't ever a radical chop. Big John Mazmanian's Austin gasser was a chop top version.
