    The Federal yellow is growing on me, but no shots of the engine bay , maybe that's what needs to be finished.

    The cowl battery lid shows as pre-63, and the King-Seeley 6V speedo show it to be pre-'57. I wonder what the title/serial number shows? Either way, this looks to be a very clean "restoration" for reasonable money.

    Maybe it was supposed to say '55 for the year? Certainly seems to be quite a deal.

    Got a heater so not'55, I might be inclined to say early '57 from the speedo.

    It's another case of who knows what it is. Park lights say mid '60s, heater controls mid '60s at least, cowl faux battery cover says no newer than early '60s, speedo age as discussed. :shrug:

    Small horn button too. I can't see if it has metal pedals or rubber pads. Most of this one look pre-57.

    But what under the hood ? Painting is fun, but it is just painting. This color attracts flies in Spring and Summer, this is an other problem.:D

    Stomp on the brakes with that mismatched rubber on a wet road and watch it turn into an orange tornado.
