Cool project Jimmy!

I was pretty surprised to see the difference it made to lengthen the cutout to the back of the C-pillar and the back of the quarter.

Keep goin'! I'm watchin'

I got a little more done on her... Cut & rolled the top of the fender over then built the corner up to the door line and took off the fender line on the door. Filled in the side bodyline & added the lower window molding..

I have never heard of changing a good into a Chevy. Lol. Great idea. Looks like a lot of work. But it looks like you have a nice handle on it

Having trouble posting pics for some reason But it would let me attach pics ?

Got the passenger side as far as the driver side, took a break from the body and cast a pair of rear slicks & rims and carb.

After several tries I got a pair of headlight buckets made up..

Also been working on a big block for it, scratch built a head to copy and a oil pan that still needs something ? lol
