Doesn't have to be a fiberglass replica. There are some pretty nice steel reproductions around too. Brookville Roadster makes a very nice steel 32 3 window coupe and if done correctly, only a knowledgeable deuce guy would be able to tell the difference. There are also a couple excellent glass bodies that with some very minor mods could appear to be stock steel. The only way for most people to tell would be to stick a magnet against the body. The point is that it could be done if someone was bound and determined to be dishonest and do it.
