On Bat, from which I can't post pictures, a two door Californian coupe of 1953 into which someone has shoehorned a 350 + T10.
Nicely done by the looks of it, I like the way the underbonnet wiring has been corralled into conduit, no spaghetti.
Pontiac drum brakes & axle for a period ride.

Externally bone stock, with red steelies and whites, and the interior also not messed with, this rather sweet little car is surely an ultimate sleeper.

I love the way it bobbles along in the (very gentle) driving video.

Light body colour must be a big help with cooling on a sunny day; was reading a magazine article about a Mercedes 220 that has done some serious touring over the years, it commented that a white wrap on bonnet and roof reduced the interior temp by some 15 degrees on a hot day.

Yours for perhaps not much money even after hauling it from Tennessee [bringatrailer.com]
