Anyone have knowledge of the Cunningham C-3 from the 1950s?

I know they came with a 331 HEMI, but trying to understand if they may have used any Industrial 331 HEMIs, too?

Thanks,
Scott

I have some knowledge of them, and Briggs Cunningham, but there are 2 places in Naples, FL that come to mind:
REVS Institute
Collier Auto Museum
I think one of them has a LOT of info & records, easy to find on Google, Wiki, etc

Don't know much about them. I have a car book with a photo and a bit about the car and Briggs Cunningham.
I like the oddball Mopar powered cars. Have a '73 Jensen Interceptor.
Wish I had a '67 Ghia 450SS

I went to a Concours d'Elegance in Dallas circa 1992 and they had a C3 there. I was expecting to see the roadster and it was the street coupe.

Hadn't heard of the Ghia before. Neat looking car. Ever hear of these guys? They used Chrysler 440s in their two doors and built four doors off the F body chassis with 318s. They even built an SUV off an IH Scout chassis.

There's an episode on Leno's Garage about Monteverdi too.
