RE: Why is engine not bolted in?
This looks like a 292ci T-Bird motor from a 55/56 Fairlane due to a single carb. I had a 292 in my 1957 Fairlane 500 and they both look the same. Also theres a very nice looking 60 j code soft top for sale on E-Bay i think you will like this one Alex due to its colour and interior! but then again i liked to have the whole car.
