Ford 34 Coupe - Chopped and sectioned custom - Project "Attitude"

Recommended Posts

Started this project last summer with a simple angle chop to a 34 ford coupe body.

Reformed the front fenders from the wrap around wheel to the sweep of the 32 fenders I like better.

Decided it needed a bit more attitude and angle-sectioned the body for a lowered stance. So far I'm liking the direction its going.

This is a snaptite kit, but only using the body, will fabricate a chassis and install a motor with opening doors and trunk. 

Started with this

the work you have done to the top makes it look like it could be removed / hardtop- like

are those some of the 70's monogram wheels?

Thanks... I'm toying with a removable top... maybe... 

Yes, the wheels are from a 1/24 Monogram 56 Chevy kit. I slid the rears into Pegasus 19" aluminum sleeves to give the big-little look. The tires are old 70-80's MPC Goodyear's
