Very nice work........must put a smile on your face to almost have a complete pristine body!

So happy for you. Looks great. Keep those pics coming. What engine combo is in store?

Looking good Tom.Still going with fenders ?

I think they look great both ways, but I'm leaning towards full fendered.

My 2 cents worth --
No Chop – Fenders
Little Chop – Fenders
Aggressive Chop – No Fenders

Tom,
Got to quit looking at your Coupe makes me want to get back into one myself.  It sure is looking great and is going to be a hell of a ride when finished


Thanks guys; I appreciate the compliments.  The coupe has sat for so long that it's great to see it finally starting to look like a car again.   As of today - I'm going with fenders...

I agree, Dean; a hiboy '33-'34 coupe looks best with a hard chop, etc.  The problem is that I'm 6'2", 6'3" after seeing my physical therapist  ;)   I really like a 3" chop with slanted A pillars a la 32drifter's coupe, but that's another $5k....
A couple to kept the fire burning.

Tom,
Looking great, can't wait to see the final details.
There is a chopped 3-window in a barn down the street form me I've been after for years -- maybe someday.

Dean, you guys in CA are spoiled; it's extremely rare that you find an early Ford in any condition in Texas.  As much as you hear about hot rodders in Texas, we are a pretty small bunch.

My old 33 3-window is somewhare in that small Texas bunch, Bill Lindig added it to his collection in 1996.
Since sold it but still local to your great state.

Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

6 1/2 years into this project.  A lot of the time was spent finding a good metalman.  I expect progress to go much much faster now.  But it sure makes me wonder why I keep starting from a pile of parts.  The next hot rod will be someone's driver that I redo to my liking.

Finally it is out of the body shop!  The doors still need final gapping, and a few other small items remain, but the body is essentially done.  It is now in queue to get into Dirty's Speed Shop.  My task now is to gather parts.   I have the front axle and front and rear wishbones.  All I need is everything else....

Congrats on another milestone in the build!  Good luck hunting parts......I am sure if you put out a list, there will be a huge response in ideas and where to find them :)
