Gee guy is ther any thing you can't scratch build? The wires are outrageous, when where the 39 Chev's in yellow plastic , the 4 dr. is availble in resin, but I don't think you'll need to go that route. Here's another question, have you searched the net for pics of 39 Chev. converts, I have and haven't found one for reference pics[ all the angles], my son found one that I use as a screen saver, it black, brown interior, but there's a model standing in frt. of the side, darn. I know he found it on lowrider mags. site quite a few yrs. ago, It does have a club placard in it but since I can't see it now I'm not sure what club is represented, real bad recall. I have even searched the club site and still can't find any pics of it. I really like 39 Chevies, all of them. Also 46-8 Fleetlines. 2 & 4 drs.. Enough said will be look'in for progress on the 39's.

as far as i know there was no convertable offered in 39.... the one u saw is probably the same i've seen.... a one-off done by the Tovar family... Try searching that name and you might find it... they build a lot of classic "Bombs" and had a original 37 convertable they built up featured recently on the cover of Lowrider Magazine too....

well if youre refering to his last project youre half correct, its a monte body but with a grand prix front and rear end, so that turns the whole thing into a grand prix. :)

The Tovar '39 Chevy convertable was the cover car in the May 2001 issue of Lowrider Magazine.
