    Nope, disc. Looks like late model GM.

    It has a firewall mounted brake booster and dual MC and the rear end has been swapped. I would certainly hope it doesn't have the stock Champion brakes.

    I wonder why the radiator had to be moved so far? I've seen other 51-52 Studes with SBC engines that did not alter the radiator support.
    Room for a wide pulley and super-charger?

    I agree with John.
    The bumperettes are bad! But then again, I don't like bumperettes on anything!! Front or back.

    Wow, he moved the radiator about as far forward as you can and still keep the hood latch.
    Seems like a nice ride.

    For a customized 52, I think this is one of the cleanest and neatest treatments of the front end. I don't think the large bumper guards hanging on the outboard side of the front bumper adds much...but overall, it looks good. More pictures might help sell the beast.
