The Fun Car

Post  bugdust on 2009-06-16, 19:34

OK, I've decided to combine my 64 project and a 61 parts car into my "volksrod" project and finish my 62 ragtop as a mild-custom cruiser. The plan is still similar to the drawing but I may keep the fenders.


I will use the rolling chassis from the 64 project. If I go fenderless I will build an extension for it and change the wheels.


The red 64 body will be used as donor metal for the black 61. Once the black body is finished I will bolt it on the 64 pan. I've started the 4" chop.




I'm chopping it a little different than most people do because, 1) I have no idea what I am doing and 2) I'm trying a few things that are a little different so I'm doing it a little different.

I didn't have much time to work on the chop today. I took a pain pill and when the little one took his nap I tried to get a little done. I'm just trying to get the overall shape and height for now. I think I am going to take it down another 1/2".

Call me stupid but I cut everything back off and lowered the roof another 1/2". I'm starting to get it back together again.

I got it outside for a better look.




I don't like it.

I did work on making the right side B-pillar match the left side and the first fit of the A & C-pillars.




Comments welcome.

Yeah, there has been some progress since those pics, but not much. I have a more up-to-date thread on volksods.com

Here's some pics.
