Building a '31 Chevy coupe from a Model A Ford


Recommended Posts

I've got a bunch of Monogram Model A coupes, new and parts.

I also have an old NIB MPC '30's Chevy roadster kit .

Looking at a hot rod '32 Chevy coupe in the latest issue of Hot Rod Deluxe got me thinking.<_<

These two cars look an awful lot alike. :huh:

I was playing with the idea of grafting a MPC Switchers '32 Ford top onto the '33 Chev roadster body. Not a direct drop-on, but looks like it might be possible. I'd like to get a bunch of other stuff cleared off the bench before I start on it, 'coz I know how I am.

Looks like it could be done, with adjustments to the roof profile, belt line molding, A pillars, and visor.

This also serves to highlight why getting the right curves and dimensions is SO critical on a model A Ford coupe. If just a few things are off--boom, it's a Chevy!
