1932 3 window coupes; arches or no arches?

Just wondering what everyone thought and why?

I can't make my mind up. The front arches lose the mean look, but no arches lose the classic look.




ooops forgot the poll!

Well you could always go Chrysler Prowler style and make arches just to cover the wheels and not the full arch and flair.

No arches/guards make it look too much of a beach buggy in my opinion.

With arches, looks much classier and will probably keep the car cleaner. No to mention save the paint from stonechips.

Don't think I'll be getting too many stone chips on a 1:18

For those who haven't figured it out, I'm about to start hacking a model up. Can't afford the real thing so I'll start small, afterall it's a car I hope to own one day,

I thought about the Prowler style arches but it doesn't look much different to none at all.

Ah well, I'm gonna start hacking stuff up tomorrow, I'll keep a thread going somewhere for the hell of it.

Re: 1932 3 window coupes; arches or no arches?

haha I was thinking limo

Got the model today, within 30 minutes of the box being opened she was stripped. Body has been sanded back and a coat of paint whacked on. Gotta figure out how I'm gonna go about chopping the roof. Also need to find some wheels.

Damn, should of got some before pics, ah well!

For some reason the coupe looks odd without them, but the roadster looks sweet without them to me.

We had a 32, damn sweet car.
