Decent Unchopped 32 coupe Question

Anybody making a DECENT 32, unchopped 3 window fiberglass coupe body. Westcott is a bit pricey for me. Probably one of the best bodies in the business, but just a bit rich...

Over 2 dozen views and no remarks ??

I do not know of a decent 32 3W body in fiberglass ... other than the Wescott. I do believe that WESCOTT is the best 32 fiberglass body made today But at their price ... a steel Brookville 3W coupe body is not but 20 per cent more money.

If you watch eBay and a few of the other online sites ... you can buy a Brookville for immediate delivery ... no waiting. I have seen a few for sale at the Brookville purchase price or below. I know of one now for immediate delivery in the North Carolina area ... for Brookville list price. Pay the man and take it home today.

I think that the 32 3W looks good chopped ... but I am 6 foot 2 inches tall, overweight and a senior citizen so I want to be comfortable. Mine will never be chopped as long as I am alive ...

DEUCE,
"I think that the 32 3W looks good chopped ... but I am 6 foot 2 inches tall, overweight and a senior citizen so I want to be comfortable."

My reason, exactly...

Me too. But I'm 5 foot 6 inches tall, overweight and and senior citizen so I can be comfortable with a 3 inch chop. For once it pays to be short.

This 32 3W belongs to a friend ... I think his coupe is KILLER and one of the best chops I have ever seen. He started with a roof damaged original steel 3W. They fixed the damage and then chopped it.

I would imagine that 345Desoto has already seen this coupe. But many others here might not have seen it.

I ran a search here on 3W coupes and came up with Redneck ...



http://www.redneckstreetrods.com/32_coup.html

The internet price for just the body is 12 grand ... if that is current

And I found this article by Street Rodder magazine about Redneck
