1961 Cadillac Chop Top

A little off the top, that’s all it takes on these Cadillacs. It seems like the factory add just a few too many inches at times. A 3″ cut off the top of the A-pillars and laying down the back glass brings this roof line to a much sleeker flowing profile with the rest of the body. Not everybody will notice the chop, but when this car is parked next to a stock one, it will be obvious which one looks more sleeker.
