Hey guys, I'm vetting out a potential 48 fleetline to purchase here locally, and the guys says it is chopped.
However, I'm just not seeing it. Can someone tell me the measurement of the vertical window opening measurement for either driver or pass front door glass on a non-chopped car?

(This obviously isn't a deal breaker for me, just curious. There is no other evidence that would suggest it was chopped.)

Thanks!

From what I see I would be totally surprised if you find any chop on that top.

From what I am looking at it is the same as my47 fleetline and with visor gives it even more of the "chopped" appearance. What I call a "natural" chop from the factory.

You guys are correct. The car I was looking at didn't have a chop. The 47 in the pic I linked used to be my car, and it absolutely did not have a chop.

I did however, recently buy a 1947 fleetline with a slight chop. I'll put together a a new post introducing that car and outlining my plan for it.

Thanks again!
