One picture of the engine shows it has the later spring lift hood and the contour of the inner quarter panel looks like it might be '61 and later. Definitely has an oval front windshield and that back window is definitely oval.

Probably a scabbed together Frankenstein.

Hideous. And obviously bogus. I doubt there's so much as a single screw that dates to 1949.

You know they're the real deal since they are complete "with the blinkers on the front side of the fenders." Wink

Here's an actual '49 so you can see the differences:

That car appears to be a butchered 57 or late 56 oval.
