The soft top models would obviously be easier to make and cost less.

OK, who here has a body we can send over for reference? Would fiberglass work for shapes and dimensions?

Just for discussion sake, would the first buyer (I'm assuming that's you Baddbob) be willing to have a "non-exact" deuce built. If so, instead of finding and shipping a deuce all the way to Pakistan and back, could ehsankiani use a 1/24 th scale model as his guide? It just seems for the first experiment out of the box that you would want to do this with the least amount of hassle and expense. And it's a lot easier to ship a Revelle model than it would be to ship an entire body (assuming you could even find somebody willing to part with a body for that long). What do you think ehsankiani, would it be possible for your shop to scale up from a plastic model?

Yes. That is one possibility. a bit larger then 1/24th would be better along with actual measurements. Can anyone post pics of a body that has been stripped down. That would give a better view for assessment.
Thanks

Ehsan, If your friends can produce a coupe or roadster body shell for $4-$5000.US and if shipping is reasonable and quality is acceptable you'd have a huge market for it here and many other places around the world. How long would it take to tool up for this project? I would imagine panel forming dies would need to be made and you'd also need a test buck? Interesting....
