Gosh, to do that to a Morgan, I'd have resurrected the Weyman body. Wooden frame, two layers of canvas, and paint, with padding between the layers to fill out the shape.

Here an article on the history of the Carson Top Shop:

customcarchronicle.com/cc-builders/carson-top-shop/the-carson-top-shop-part-1/#.XhoNXZSIajI
Quote:
The birth of the Traditional Custom Car in the late 1930s was influenced by one big event.The design of the Carson padded top by Glen Houser in 1935.

They did Jaguar XK-120 as well:
