A lot of work went into this 56 car, currently with a Chrysler 392 featuring twin Carter 4bbls.
It's covered some road mileage so the main bugs have probably been worked out.
Get in and drive.

Bit too cartoonish for me, those arches. But I always admire a chap who actually finishes his build.

With five days to go, bidding is lethargic. A bargain, likely.

Sold for $35,000 despite a good deal of criticism from commenters.
Not such a bargain.
But nice for the seller.

Given stock Heleay's in that condition go for 2x that, I think the buyer did ok. Couldn't build one for that. Even a rough rolling shell would cost a nice chunk of that price.
