That's a beauty!  Thanks for posting the pics - it's a rare beast indeed.

What's the story with the feed bags on the front bumper?

They are actually desert water bags.......Pretty common on southwest/western cars on the highway in the 40's and 50's....before Ice chests and water jugs for camping became common/popular..

Here's one of mine....

 My FIRST car....when I was 13....was a 52 chev sedan delivery  (former ambulance)......

Just dragged this 54 Oshawa built SD home last year...(45 years later)....apparently one of 1400 built that year

That's original paint AND upholstery.....95% complete and is supposed to run....
