I had these two boxes sitting on top of each other in my garage that I was walking by every day. I never smoke in my house, so when I need a cig I go in the garage. So I was staring at the two boxes for ever. One was from a Revell '32 3 window and on top of it was an old issue of the ZZ Top's '34. So this crazy idea started eating at me. I love 32s more than anything else (well except Ferraris), but I always loved the roof line of the '33/'34 better. So why not have the best of both? So I took a Revell 3 window and cut it to receive the Monogram's '34 roof. The Eliminator's roof had to be pie cut in the middle to narrow it to fit the Deuce body. Then the back end of the '34 hood was cut, sectioned and glued to a 32 hood, creating a hybrid that is a 32 top hood, but has a 34 cut infront of the windshield. I have glued the side hoods to the body right now, but they are going to be cut to follow the door jambs and to meet the top hood.
There are things I do know how I want and many I don't. I know it will stay fenderless. I know I will keep the louvers, and I will try to use the Mercster wheels. I want this to be the perfect mixture between a traditional and modern rod which is a hard balance to keep.
So what do you guys think?
Then what should I do for a chassis?
The standard Revell '32 chassis
The Phantom Vicky's chassis
A custom one.....?
Vette rear end, solid axle quickchange or Jag IRS?
Any suggestions appreciated.
