Here's a cheap eBay score, just because we have nothing like it in resin or styrene...

One idea:

Will require lots-O-work (rescribe or make longer coupe doors, etc) but I think a Standard coupe would be cool...

 

Or maybe a sedan delivery B)

Actually, if you can find a suitable replacement windshield frame, I'd leave it just as is.

But where's the challenge in that? :lol:

 

I like the one-off stuff that you can't buy off the shelf :)

I get it. But it does look pretty cool as a convertible. But it's your model. Have at it! Just remember to show us the results.  :D

Cut the hood sides off and put a Hemi in that thing !  :lol:

Great score.

Better yet find a caster to copy your body and make both versions .

Do these Pegasus wheels look BAD on anything? :lol:

Jeff, that looks pretty sweet just the way it is.  I see that you also like redoing the diecasts when we can't get that particular car in resin or plastic kit form.  They definitely fill in the gaps.
