Yup, been there, done that! I seem to remember mine looking similar to that back in 1990.

Bob are you doing a full chassis on that car or just a backhalf?

On that one of mine, the top was chopped 4 inches and the wheelbase shortened up to 111 inches. Also the engine on mine is set back 10 inches. Yup, hacked that one up pretty good. Not much Studebaker left on mine. Looking back, I probably wouldn't cut the top any more than 2 inches now. Not that it's a problem other than trying to find a rear glass for it but it would allow for a little more head room.

I like that front end. I should have put one of those on mine when I was building it but I don't think they make a 55 front end. Man, those old cars have some steel in them as mine is heavy as a tank. Course it's probabably got a ton of bondo in it. O:)

Anywho, looks like you're well on your way and it should be a blast to drive when it's finished!
