    ED Falcon Two Door Coversion

    P1010088.jpgP1010076.jpg

    This is one I am hoping to covert over the next few months, its my old ED Sedan After the transmission went on it last year I was stuck wondering what I was going to do with it. Busted transmission aside the rest of its pretty solid, a few tiny dents on the duco but no accident damage and no rust either. In short its the perfect candidate for what I want to do. Four door sedans are a dime a dozen so I though I would have a go at converting it into a coupe for something different. I picked up an extra set of doors the other week. Once I have a second pair of front doors I will begin the conversion. The front doors shown will be cut vertically towards the rear. The second set of front doors I get will be cut vertically towards the front. I am looking to extend the doors an extra ten inches. The doors on the car will remain on it until such a time that the lengthened doors are ready to be fitted. I intend to keep the original doors intact so that I can sell them on. My other reason for keeping the doors on the car is because the car is sitting outside and I do not want the insides exposed to the elements. The rear doors I picked up will be shortened accordingly and welded into the cavity where the original rear doors are currently still attached. I will not be touching anything on the car its self unless I am satisfied that the lengthened doors I have created are actually correct and are going to work. To make sure I get the doors right I will be building a jig to keep them in alignment. Next step will be to get the second set of front doors and shorten the spare set of rear doors.

    Seen Sony scorcher?
    Exact same idea.
    Was heaps of info in street machine at the time when they got it build.

    It's one falcon shape that really suits two doors.

    Good luck and I would love to see you turn this into a build thread.

    it will be fun moving the B pillar but I am sure you will get it done.

    Boxcars are the perfect car for this conversion, not only because they still look right, but also because they're virtually worthless.
    Screw up one shell and just go find another minter for a few hundred..

    Veridian used to do custom car glass, but it's not cheap. I'd say for some thing like this you would be close to five figures.
    This particular conversion it would be worth contacting Hilliers and seeing if they would help out.

    Great Idea. I always loved the Sony Scorcher.



    I think I remember reading that Street Machine based that one off a EA.

    On a net search, I also found that a second one has been done in NSW and runs a turbo 6.
