Part 3... is he going to have a shorter roof to deal with?

I think the 60 fury trim fills the gap?

Thanks for posting
Not sure why he is doing this, I would have thought a better body would have been the go
instead of killing the dodge (even though that was also my original plan with my cars)

Anyway, Interesting to watch

I think the roof will fit, but I think the 4 door sedan ant the coupe windscreens had a difference which may show itself down the track
of his build

the guy is in Alberta Canada and I don't think there is really a choice nor is he dumping 5k on a body. Its rare to see a 2 dr hardtop even in the states that is usable.

He picked up the dodge cheap(800$ i think) and i assume the fury even cheaper. I think they fix up cars and sell them and do body shop fixes.

The guy does amazing body work. He can pound out any dent and make the metal look perfect and paint.

He did this before with a 60's Ford, came out what appears perfect.

here he cut a 4 door 69 ford in half... insanity..

wow, its getting even better.

Of course people bitching about tearing up a 4 door dart car to save a 2 dr ht fury but that was the right choice...

The donor car was an abandoned project (1960 Dodge Dart Pioneer 4 door sedan) that happened to run and drive (a little). Rust free body and frame, but incomplete - couldn't have prayed for a better donor, especially in Canada.

Biggest remaining issue seems to be a possible rear passenger quarter replacement - not only for the rust out, but also a rotten repair job near the fin at one time.

Despite the unibody construction, was there still any additional rigidity installed for hardtops over sedans?

Watching the video, it was just the door post in the middle, so no didn't appear to be any. This would be scarier with a framed car I think. the unibody helped keep it in shape I think.

I think he needs to use a come along on the tail fin(make a big adapter) and use a lot of work to fix that quarter, finding another donor in Canada would be an insane task I think.

Part 5 is up already - mating the drip rails are done and, at the end for a little bit of a cliffhanger to the next episode, it looks like he's picked up a 1960 Plymouth 4 door hardtop, possibly for the quarters as well as the passenger fin. What you see in the video thumbnail are the remains of the '60 Dodge on what's left of the '60 Plymouth lower unibody. Yeah, it sagged in half within a matter of months:
