PapaG From what I understand that is a hard one to chop. It must be planed out and all that stuff. Dick Dean is one of the best on that body style, but he is retired and lives in California. I think there are some magz articles on this chop on the internet. Do a search. 49, 50, and 51 are all close IIRC. Like od39 says, go to showa and find those cars and talk to those people and find someone that does. It will not be cheap. It will require a 2nd roof or someone that is good making stuff from scratch.

Chop job

I would tell you that you need to find someone that has had a top done and ask them about a referance to a shop just dont take it to someone that says I think I can do it or you will have a nice roadster not a hard top. Do yourself a favor and if you have to take it to New York or someplace far it is worth your Money. Go to car shows and ask folks there where they got their top done. They will not mind telling you we do like to talk about cars..........aint that weird
