    I need some inspiration for a 1956 chevy more door. I was thinking lowered and chrome steelies.

    Depends on the body color IMHO, I've always been partial to semi gloss black wheels, black wall tires and some stock type dog dish caps. My favorites have always been baby moons with the bow tie in the center. The stock 56 caps also look good as is!

    I just finished a solid black 56 210. Inline 6 with 2 carter/webers. Steel wheels black wall tars and dog dish caps. NO front bumper that gives it that old H/Gasser look.
    Good luck

    This one is my favorite, basically bone stock with a factory two tone and lowered just the right amount.

    My '56 is the same colors and I'd like mine to look just like this one.

    I found that pic in this thread, some good suggestions there.

    If you're real ambitious, check out this build

    That's what I'm planning to do with my '57, I've already done a couple of Mopars the same way. Thought about doing my '56 as well but not sure yet.

  9. Paint it some dark color and remove the door handles so it looks like a more sporty two door.

    Don't listen to any of the two door propaganda douche baggery, build a cool 4dr that looks better than their 2 doors.

    I LOVE that stance. What have you done chassis-wise?

    Gasoline Junkie.. the rear is stock leaf with a 2 inch block. i have a 4 link for the rear to install someday.

    the front has a 1 inch drop spring and 2 inch drop spindles from CCP. i got the prototype set to test out before they went public with them.
    stock wheels and caps. sits just about perfect in front but i want to lower the rear some more. have to wait and see how the 4 link sets up. bag it someday possibly.

    i like the scallops on yours.

    I dig it. Theres nothing cooler on a 57 than steelies and stock dog dish caps in my opinion. They just look sinister as hell.
