A fellow just posted a 53 hardtop tonight for sale. He is supposed to send me some pictures tomorrow. The price is right and it is only about 90 miles from here. Got my fingers crossed.
I got the trunk area cleaned up today. Tomorrow I am going to get some more all-thread and cut the tack welds loose holding the front and back together. Then I can pick the body shell up and trial fit the trunk floor.

|Stick895||Well, the guy that runs Classic Cars of South Carolina had a 53 coupe. He apparently is not inclined to deal but maybe if enough of us went by, ya know?|

A Sedan frame does not have this 1/4 inch plate in the top.

Ouch, if you had that sand blasted all that would be left is holy tin foil.
You're too far in to give up now. Maybe something will pop up local over the summer.
David seems to find all kinds of cars, have him join the hunt...

|deadbodyman||Well John, I don't see you buying a new frame and don't think you'd be happy splicing 2x4 tube to your old frame...I can however see you getting some original pieces and welding them in, making an undetectable repair.|

DVAP shows a couple dozen '53 & 54's on their website, no converts tho.
One is a panel truck and 2 wagons. would they have the heavier convert frame ?

You've spent the past year showing off fabrication skills that most of us are barely worthy to even look at, and you're worried about whether you can build a frame??
You are too bloody modest

|1971BB427||I guess finding a convertible frame might be impossible. So I'd guess getting another frame and putting your parts into it might be easiest. But from what I see of your work, I doubt easy would really enter the decision process. I'd think you'll go for best, not necessarily easiest!|

Looking great John, you are a true inspiration. On the bright side, all the rust makes less to cut out for replacement
Any chance you will be at the F100 nationals next month?
