    Being the owner of this car to this current date, I can tell you that it never had a 409 or was never sold to Reggie Jackson.  Miles did the 5" chop on my 1964 Chevrolet SS in the winter of 1978. Still not completed but, is still sitting in my garage waiting to be finished.  God bless you Miles Masa .... I miss you and all your car stories you shared with me while my car was at you Downers Grove shop.   I promise to finish this car in your memory some day soon!

    You are lucky : nearly everythings fit everythings . In this case , you shorten  a car and you're right .
    A shortened 4 doors become a coupe , and new proportions turn your car out , into a coupé , first advantage  .
    The second one : car is beautiful and useful  , just after the cutting .
    A four doors is always too long , uselessly too long .
    What is magic is the new " reactions " of the car , once it's shortened it's always lighter  ,   faster  .
    .... without modifying the engine !
    I don't live in  USA , and in my country , this modification is highly forbidden  .

    We knew someone , here , who did it still . On a 1948  Oldsmobile  . It was no more a straight 8 engine , but a stock V8
    Automatic transmission  .....  , a true airplane , and more a very beautiful " little " car  . THE   DRAMA :
    this car ended in a junkyard ," for the parts " .  Car has been put there by authorities  . So cut !  if you can  !
