This car has European bumperettes, noticeably smaller, not US ones, and of course a duck tail used originally on earlier cars. So the car has obviously had some modifications. Nice car.
thanks. It did look a little frankencar and not particularly American as you point out. My photo doesn't do justice to how handsome it was.
