YES - It does!
As a modeler - with a large collection of Studes, and looking for a new project - well, I just might have to!

And to think I keep that car in my shop out of the rain for better than 2 years, just sprinkle a box of salt on the top and the snow will melt away.

Like your Fastback Stude oltrk, maybe some late model Mustang side rear windows to help the blind spots.. Is that an early GM top?

Knock it off with the suggestions, Bob! I'd like to see the finished product in my lifetime.:rolleyes:

Looks like somebody has been real busy in their spare time.:):p:)

Roofline's great. It's the outward visibility that's not good. (grin)

jclary, I would address you with your first name but the owners name is the same so will keep it simple, John knows I am joking but bottom line it would work.

Rog the top is from a 71 riviera, the back window and lid is 51 chevy, the fins are hand made , the outward vision is good. 53 nose, Gt dash with mods. Allen

I know it's a shame. I was cleaning out the pole barn and it got caught over night with a bad lake effect snow storm. It's going back under cover soon. It got caught in snow last winter also. Seems like every time I pull it out it snows :(

Had to share this one given the "Maverick" comment further up; here's a fortuitous alignment of Stu Chapman's 64 Daytona droptop and a 70s Mercury Comet, caught at Mapleview several years ago...
