Can't tell anything from that pix . look at the dataplate on the other side.
If you get your car judged, there are a few points that will get knocked off.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

This is off-subject, but I just had a S/C counterbalanced crank made-up by SCAT in California. Perfectly fits 35-36 Auburn Lycoming engines. They now have all the specs, so the cost is not too high.
I also have the patterns to make S/C exhaust manifolds, (exact reproduction).

G-T: It looks from that picture that your car was converted from standard to supercharged appearance. There are no s/c intake manifolds, no supercharger and you have a non-s/c carb. & air cleaner. My guess is that someone liked the appearance of the external pipes and built it that way.
Beautiful car, though!

I think Paul's car was more "yellow" in paint color with perhaps red interior and wheel disks too. Looks like same idea though.
