LOL. We can't claim to be good until one of us is right.

I believe you are right John, now that I have looked a little closer. It does appear to be a 46-48 Chevy. I was just going off the horizontal tail lights, but after I looked again I see it appears to have a second light/reflector below the tail light and they do look too low to be Ford.

Martin I had to zoom in, turn the lights off, and squench my eyes to even get a guess, and I'm pretty sure that was wrong now that I see a few other things lol

I'm always good...........unless I'm being bad, but even when I'm being bad I'm good at it

Brings a quote to mind "If you can't be good, be good at it, just don't name it after me"

I think the tail lights were pretty much the same from 1941 to 1948 which puts you in the year range. It's a picture of my 41 Chevy I took the other night in my garage with the cell phone.

That makes you the winner!

Next question?

Purely a guess here but I would think the coupe having roll up windows and window frame versus the roadster having no windows at all would play a part in that.

That is probably true BB but that is not the reason.

Well if it's not the window thing then it must be that there is enough wood from the engine packing crate for the roadster door but not enough for the coupe'.

Alright. Let's not be tacky. Next thing you know you are going to say the roadster was a throw away car.

Again purely a guess but are your doors originals and your buddies doors replacement or did he replace the wood with steel? If I remember correctly replacing the wood with steel is a fairly common change on those cars but I don't know enough about them to know if the coupe came wood or steel? Or maybe it was a cost thing? Since the roadster was the less expensive model?
