that's a great looking conversion.

I think extending the "cove" past the back of the door and closer to the rear wheel opening might reduce the "heavy" look of the back half of the wagon that the new roof line is creating.

(just a thought)

That sounds like a good idea. I'd also move the B-pillars up to the door line, or pretty close to it.

Looks like the factory designed it.  I like your 300 wagon in the background too.

Very creative concept.  I have one of these complete roofs in the parts box, and your build is giving me some ideas of how to use it.  Looking forward to updates.

Very clever, the roof looks a very good fit !

Look forward to seeing this complete,  then you can start your magnum, with a stude roof grafted on ! !

Excellent work!  This type of custom often suffers from the "tail droop" look, but this one is solid.  Also good that you resisted putting oversized wheels and tires on it, instead going with realistic rubber.  Could pass for stock.

Pretty cool ideas here, and nicely executed as well! Doesn't that Stude body just beg for customization?! SUCH a cool style for its time; quite forward-looking. Keep it up!

Just found your build, looks amazing! Might have to attempt that someday, after my hundred or so other ideas. Love the look!

Looking forward to the rest, keep it going!!
