Default 53 AD Chopped, sectioned and narrowed

A customer wants me to do all three of these mods sooooo
Lets rock

Here's the body that I'm starting with.









First move is to section the cab between the door hinges.

it is only my cruddy opinion but I think ADs dont look right with a chop unless they have also been sectioned.

narrowed though? never seen that!

Interested to see how you do the top chop as some cut these into to quarters(Not necessary IMHO) or straight across and put in a filler piece (I wouldn't do that again)
I
Knowing your work I'm sure you have it already planned out.
If I ever do one of these I will chop it like the pic shows.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

They can look good with a chop only if it's not dropped too much. I have seen them narrowed but never saw the point myself as they aren't exactly the roomiest truck ever built. But hey. It's what the customer wants....
