It looks a lot like my '26 Chevy. Well, mine isn't that nice, and never will be, but the lines are very similar. Good work Moose. Maybe I should just get some nice pictures and a 3D printer. ;D

The pic's that you provided were a little low on resolution so I grabbed a different one and made the modifications you were looking for. I hope it gives you some ideas. Here is the before and after shots.

Moose  thanks  it sort of looks out of place with the roof chopped and not the body suppose i will have to put air bags in it to get it down on the ground.I am either going to use the 15 inch buick riviera wheels or the wire wheels with wide white walls 4 inch or larger. I purchased a 14 inch from a GS car and cut that in half to fit the continental kit. Also with skirts.I bought a pair for an oldsmobile and will have to cut them down to fit. thanks  wayner

  Ed. The rave around here is to take the coupe de ville cut the roof off them and get  a rag top from whatever and graft them . I have seen them done where you could not tell the difference  like the 72 montie carlo convertables.  GM never made one but they do exist. They were cutting the roof off them and using chevelle ragtops from a wreck. I have two cadillac Broughams  one an 81 silver 350 oldsmobile and one an 84 with the 4.1 liter alluminum V8 engine Eleganze.I am more or less making a pimp mobile out of the 81 .But i will also utilize it as a trailer hauler just for laughs and they do so ride like you were on a cloud.
   I just got home from a fishing trip out on lake ontario,and on the way home i spotted what looks like a 30/31 chevy coupe light blue heading into Kingston. Looked like a full fendered car and looked prety sharp.I was headed the other way.I am searching for a 54 chevy half ton truck or 3/4 ton truck front axle juice brakes and springs.

Dugeman  I like the three armed spinners as well, but put them in the corvette centers or the chevelle centers that fit that style of wheel.That would be sharp. O purchased the three armed spinners from summit and made them to fit the new cragger SS wheels on my 59 and they sure are sharp and old school. I guess i am giving up my age  AH  lol lol  vette59jdwl

This photo was taken before the glass was installed . I do run the small hubcaps on the car right now but can't find trim rings to fit the 4 1/2" front rims . I just registered and insured it and past the NSRA 23 point inspection. Now I am enjoying the hell out of it.

Sammons and myself are so sure that we have both said these are corvette stock wheels could be bought in 6 in. 8in. and 10 inch  check for the center caps for a chevelle or corvette.Then put the three arm spinners in the center or leave them plain
