Red face 1947 Austin princess

Hello All,

I just bought a 1947 Austin Princess - A135 (body). Car has been outdoor for sever
years- interior gone. Engine look all rusty and parts will be difficult....... I have small budget of 5k to restore and paint. My main concern is the engine & transmission.......... any advice ?

A) keep original engine and spend money to make it work............. or a use engine with transmission, radiator, brakes .............back Suspension ( no spring- they have old style arc type of bar and brake seems to have some oil pressure type (not pad)
