TD assaulted by maniac with louvre machine

This poor TD has been the subject of an egregious assault that has left the bonnet resembling a cheese grater, despite which its cooling is somewhat marginal...

On BaT, where there are better photos that I cannot post here, a TD of 1952 with a 355 SBC + Muncie + 3.5 posi.
Deceptively stock-looking, the original steel body sits on a custom frame, with 4-wheel independent suspension.

Fortunately the seller has posted a link to HAMB where the car sat unsold at $20k in 2016, and included a few photos that I can post....

Personally, I would have liked a glove box, otherwise looks a clean, attractive build that has the added bonus of being around a few years for most of the bugs to be worked out.

Rnm at $16,250.

Strange lack of enthusiasm for a good-looking car.
