Stopped to look (very large local show), but only one Y-Block there.  A ‘57 Fairlane (?) HT.  Heavily customized, and absolutely EVERYTHING under the hood (except the engine block & alum. radiator) was chrome plated (polished Mummert intake though).  I WAS intending to hang around and speak to the owner, but all the body/etc. custom work was in such poor taste, upon reflection, I thought better of it.
BTW: Star of that show for me was a perfectly restored Lincoln Zephyr V-12.  Never seen one before.

Well at least the owner kept the Y-block in there, gotta give him credit for that.
When I come across a car like that I fully expect to see a SBC under the hood.

True.  Dummy lake pipes, cheesy paint colors, fuzzy dice, inch-off-the-ground, etc. theme,, and when I saw the generic chrome finned valve covers, I then started to walk away thinking… ‘SBC’🤮
Until, I finally noticed the distributor location and the two-bolt-hold-down ‘T’ nuts.😁

I have real lake pipes, black on black, with fuzzy dice and a 3" lowering job. Plus "generic" Offenhauser finned valve covers on my blown 292 (bored to 325). So now I'm cheesy?

Definitely not!  Your car is a perfect example of what I consider a true 50s/60s-era classic custom/hot-rod done in excellent taste (IMHO), and thus you get a pass for the fuzzy dice (unless those spotlights are dummies?….but, even if real, maybe a bit ‘over the top’?).

Spotlights are dummies and exactly what we had in the late 50's. The true Appelton's were way expensive even then. I've often thought of wiring them with a light but can't decide on the bulb color. The slot mags are a nod to the 60's and the setup for when I go racing. Otherwise I run the spiders with beauty rings.

I always liked baby moons with beauty rings.  Standard back then though if you didn’t have AR mags, was spun alum. full moons or (Plymouth?) ‘flipper’ hubcaps, that were popular also (and would likely look real natural on your car).

Old's flippers was the hoot. Most of the time I just ran no hubcaps and contrast painted wheels. It took money for the other stuff. Had my share of baby moons along the way.
