I have the ambulance doors in mind.
There's two factory body seams in the roof, one right behind the windshield and one above the back doors, on these cars.
I'm gonna cut at one or the other of these, take the back section of the body from the parts car to repair the black car.

Those are some nice plans


As is the sedan delivery idea.

Oh lord, Not another sedan delivery. I hope for asthetics sake you plan on lengthening the front doors to make all the lines look right. And don't mind me. I just see all kinds of wagons and 4 doors up here that everyone busts out the side windows and fills it with metal thinking they have a hot rod. Done right and it will look killer since Pontiac never made one. I just see so many done, um, not right. Looks like a solid car to start with.

Thanks SR8
I've been in the shop removing the wood floor.
Well, what's left of it
Then I can start gettin the body squared up.
I can put bracing in and pull the body off the frame.
Here's something unique. All the original wood roof grids are there in place

The Chevy sedan deliveries front doors were not as long as the 2 door. They were the same length as the 4 door.
I intend to combine the back door and the back window with no separation between them.
I appreciate your input.
Am I missing something or does this look wrong ?

I think that looks bad ass!

I have no doubt you're going to do this one right.

I do understand what jfg455 is saying, not everyone can pull it off. It's the whole package that makes or breaks it. Have to have the right stance, chop, channel,
fit and finish of panels, etc.

Seems like there is less distance from the back of the front door to the rear tire than on a 4 door. The one in the above pic doesn't look bad. But I think the front door should be longer. I am used to seeing the rigs like the 2 OT wagons pictured here that are converted. They are built by the same crowd that puts stacks on their V6 pickup trucks and think they look good!

The 38 Chevy master I think should have a slightly longer front door to look right but isnt bad. The ford delivery looks right IMHO but then it is a tudor sedan with deleted windows. Just my own idiosyncrocies. I think it would look killer with just 3" taken out of the roof and the rest mostly stock with your planned drive train under it.
