The roof of the body is chopped about 4" , the body is of course channeld and tubbed to accommodate the huge 33" Slicks in the rear.
The front is a one piece fibreglass item,as well as doors,tailgate and bumpers.
Rear quarters and roof still remains the old steel from +50 years back,good ol' quality...
