The top was chopped 3”. The windshield and back glass are recessed into the body just like modern windshields and even the wing windows are functional. It has power windows and door openers which you will not find on just any 46 Chevrolet Coupe allowing you to open doors from the key fob. The top of hood of the car was removed for a new sheet metal top. That was done instead of welding the center hood seam which could cause warping and possibly rust later in life. The new hood skin was cut out and a slight brake was made in a sheet metal brake to form the hood peek. Then it was oxy acetylene welded and hammer welding, old school. The hood nose is laid back 2.5” from stock. Until you see it setting next to another car you will not notice it because it is so subtle. The hood scoops were made using a ¼” steel rod and fully welding both sides of the rod in to place. The rain drip rails were removed and a ¼” steel rod was welding on both sides and molded into place. The belt line below the back glass going around to each back window to help break up the body and create a better body line. This is a subtle but dramatic change that really enhances the appearance of the Coupe. The final paint and body work was performed by the famed builder and painter Rodger Ward in Ottawa Kansas at Bad Paint Company who has had several magazine cars over the years.
This stunning Coupe also has frenched head lights, filled door handles, frenched taillights, and a smoothed bumper and grill. The wheels are Torque Thruster wheels. 17” up front and 18” on back. The rear end is Posi-trac with 3:23 gearing. Holley Sniper fuel injection has also been recently added. The radiator was replaced with a new aluminum radiator with electric fans. Evans High performance coolant was also used over standard coolant. Front disc brakes have also been installed and the brake lines were replaced with new ones.
