Great progress Tom, I'll quote our friend "Keep your eye on the prize"!
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

I rode a lot of miles in that 34! I think it was originally built in the 50's in Cheyenne Wy. & updated several times. It has been owned by Dick Rodwell, a major update by Tony Price, then owned by My pal Don Palfreyman and now Kevin.
A real road warrior with a blown small block. Great car.

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.

Further progress on the metal work !  Quarters almost finished, door outers almost done, deck lid fitted, rear panel mounted, and best of all the body is now attached to the floor.

Got a custom stainless tank for it I’m not using. Make you a hell of a deal.

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.

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.

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....
