cope? Inherited a basket case (Rich Bn6 here passed away) what I thought was a 58 it looks like he took the frame of his donor car, a bn4 2+2 I believe and was trying to make it work with the body work from his 2 seater bn6. The Bn6 tail section is in much better shape, is this something that would normally be done? I guess my choices are to have a bn4 frame/body with a bn6 motor or a bn4 frame with a bn6 body and motor. Thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. It looks like he was more interested in weekend cruising club get togethers than concourse type restoration unfortunately I cant ask his intent. Thank you

Interesting project- I guess anything is possible with enough cutting and welding. The engine in a bn4 or bn6 is the same unless an early Longbridge bn4 with the gallery cylinder head. I’ll send you a private message- I’m in the Phoenix area and would be happy to chat. Best, Austin
