Watch this video: Some of the pics are of the Red buses used in glacier nat park..those have been in use for many years and were restored using new Ford truck chassis and woudl make a great foundation for a limo.


I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

After reading you original post I went to Google/images and I was amazed at how many and honestly how cool a hot rod limo can be. There were everything from T-buckets to Nomads. it seemed that the Nomad wagon would be the most practical due to size and width. Please keep us posted on what you decide. As for your question, Go with one of the aftermarket steel repoduction bodies such as Brookville. This way you wont frustrate your concern of using an original car and finding someone who can build a stretch from fiberglass would have to cost an amazing amount of money over steel. Again please post pictures including build photos if you can.
