They're still out there! This one appears to be amazingly solid and straight[:0] And not yet committed to either stock or rod:

Guido loves to show his floor pictures- this one looks as good, and in that super-popular body style[8D] Of course, the price is showing it...

Not my dream body style, but if it was, I'd be turning over couch cushions to put together the money this will draw... how high do you think it will go?

Wow! Great start for a project, starring the most beautiful body style ever!

Of course, I am somewhat prejudiced, in case you don't know.

Yeah, that's a sweetie alright. And you could eat off those floors! I bet it gets to about $6k with a no-sale because the seller put the reserve into the stratosphere.

The car looks solid and may have come from the West, but it was built in South Bend, not Vernon, California.
Before you drop the suggested 502 into it, you would want to beef up a lot more than the rear end on that Champion.
When I was building up 1953-1954 Starliners, I could never locate a body like that to start with. I would rather pay extra for that car than start with a bunch of rust at any price.
