G'Day Deuce,
The bumper bar on the unrestored car one seems to have the correct ends for '35 and the restored car looks more like a'36 bar with more angled ends. Also did some European cars have the horns fitted under the bonnet not external below the headlights?

Well spotted yes the bumper bar on restored car is of a 1936 car found it at a swap meet fully rechromed so fitted it on car..
Unsure about horns only seen them on the front ofcar .

I think the horns on the Belgium car were removed when it was painted and never reinstalled.
