This last photo is the best photo I could get with the hood only opened a fewinches.I did not want to compromise the hinges. Itshows the air cleaner on the 2 carbs, the chrome valve covers and a complete original engine---the most important thing.

The radiator hose looks new which meansthe car was running more recently than the rest of the car indicates.
