    Not my ’53, but I was part of the team that chopped it. This was done during one of Joel Davis’ (Davis Haus of Style) weekend chop classes. 4 inch chop at the A-pillars. A ’52 Chevy rear window was used.

    Drop axle installed. Time to play with the rear springs a tad.

    From Buckland Automotive 

    1938 Ford custom pickup ready for paint with the many sheet metal modifications complete.

    With ‘38 Ford car front sheet metal, ‘40 Ford front fenders. The hood top had to be extended on the sides so we added a 2 into 1 swage to flow down from the cab into the nose chrome trim.
    Cab extension 4” through the middle of the doors, roof chopped 1 1/2” and crown reduced by 1”, and raking the screen back 3” to pull it all together.
    Chevy pickup rear fenders on the shortened pickup bed with a rolled rear panel. One off fabricated running boards filling the gap.
    Inside there is a ‘40 Chevy dash modified to fit the ford cab and to house a ‘40 ford gauge cluster.

    From Mark, Customs by Flash…

    ”After a series of sandings on Les PoPo (180, 220, 320) I put it into black HOK sealer. this will help identify any shallow low spots or bad curves on the car that block sanding might not pick up. I still have to do the hood and cowl vent, that needed a bit of work. Next step is to mount the body back on the chassis ( which is out for coating, and Mike’s rebuilding), then go over the engine compartment, assemble doors, and hood, and final prep for paint!”

    That’s a lovely chop. I don’t think enough people rake the front screen and sometimes it’s a big improvement.

    From VonHitch_Kustoms

    “May not look like much now but I guarantee that was a pain in the ass. Back on the Zephyr windshield opening that flat VW looking glass is gone. Still playing with the shape of the opening but it’s close and the proportions to the side windows are better nobody is ever gunna really know how different it’s opening is heck I even lost track. Had to lower the windshield opening into the cowl a bit as it looked to fat below the windshield right now how it sits the largest part of the opening is 1/2” smaller than the Zephyr opening was its lost some of the bulky forehead look by moving it up Gunna stare at it a bit n smoke a cigar before I commit. I ain’t sold on the shape yet but it’s close. The one thing for sure is the V glass with chrome frame is huge improvement have no idea what Lincoln was thinking with that flat glass.
