I have the chance of buying a 95 eldorado convertable with front damage, frame is good and my question is would it be easier to try and convert the the convertable to look like a fleetwood since they both have the same platform and i dont have to mess around with looking for glass and making a top from scratch not to mention the ton of hours on fabricating doors, interior and making them work when everithyng is already there?

Not sure if I follow here, but the 95 Eldorado does not share a frame with the Fleetwood, and never has, the Eldo's been FWD for over 40 years.
i guess that answers all my questions. thnx

the end

Those cars are badass, and go for a lot of money if they are clean. I would just new Eldo parts on it, and you'd have a nice ass car. Post pics if you can...........

so since the eldo cant be made to look like a drop top Le Cab can we use the top and doors on a fleetwood to make it look like a Le Cab?
