I know nothing about these cars. Is it normal for the gauges to be on the right and the steering wheel on the left, or has this car been converted to left hand drive?

The ones that have been sold new  in Belgium all had LHD.

All American delivery cars were LHD.   I have paid attention to these for years and have never seen a RHD in the US.  I'm sure they are around but there are lots more of LHD here.

Wonder how bad it really is? Paint may be terrible for concourse,  but it's alot better than some paint jobs I have seen.  I didn't see any cracking or lifting. Wet sand and buff.  If the floors aren't rotten,  detail it up and get it running.  Not sure what good ones sell for.

Great cars, but as far as I know a wood, body structure. So rough ones { like this one seems to be according to the seller } means a very big rebuild. If profit is the goal this is probably the last car a person would want to be involved with. Strong club support.

Instrument panel is dead center. See the positional relationship with windshield center division and wiper switch. Old leather and wood interior looks so good I can almost smell it from the pictures.   -    Carl

Not the project for me, but I can certainly see why someone with more skill and experience than me might bite.  If this could be the end product, it is very attractive.
