    You can include me in the we who like 56s! If fact, that is my favorite year for tri five chevys! But your 55, Gordy, is one of my very favorite mild customs, of any make or model!

    Cool thread. Here is my 56 Nomad when I pulled it out of the barn. I had been chasing this car for about ten years, it was never for sale. Sadly the guy passed away, but luckily the widow chose to sell it to me. I had to buy three cars to get it, all tri-five Chevs, but it was well worth it.

    Thank you. I will probably do a dedicated thread on it and/or write a story about it on my site when the time comes. I don't have a ton planned for this car though, it actually cleaned up really well. I'm going to leave the body and paint as it is, just rub it out. Other plans are just to lower it, a healthy small block and 4 speed, etc. Then just drive the wheels off. Thanks again.

    Photo originally posted by vinfab. (My slightly cleaned up version here)

    This is the way I tend to remember '55-'56 Chevys from the '63-'66 era.
    A good stance, all bumpers attached, either decent standard paint or
    gray primer and if lucky, the car had chrome reversed wheels. We'd
    be hard pressed to see one with Americans or E-Ts. Minimum 283 with
    that Hurst shifter popping up in front of the bench seat. I was 14 in '64
    and got to hang with a few of those high school seniors or those who
    just graduated that had these types of Chevys. Funny, but '57 Bel-Airs
    got more respect and care poured into them, not that the '56-'56 were
    beaters. That wasn't the case at all. "TOMS DOGS" '56 (just above) is
    another good example. Tri-Fives like these really sparked my love of
    the '56 Chevy, yet I've never owned one.

    I can just imagine seeing vinfab's car sitting at Dog 'N Suds or Lemont
    Lanes in Lemont, Illinois in 1965...

    Thank you so much quick 85. That is the only photo I have of my first 56 and I thought about posting on the photoshop thread to have someone clean it up, so THANKS. That picture was taken in 1971 so a little newer than your time frame. I bought it as a roller (no engine no trans) for $150.00 but it came with a posi and 4.88s. A C4B with a 780 Holley and 310 Isky cammmed 283 and a junk yard T-10 got it on the road. My only car, winter (that was fun),summer, school, work, drag strip and yes drive ins although ours was the Barrell Drive In in Sioux Falls SD. I do have a photo of the drive in for you. 211261143_4356293261075504_7944898227296244855_n.jpg

  23. Those were the best years to bad we can't get back to that way, our country seems to have gone down hill, it's a real bummer, guess we have to make the best of things, truly a bummer.

    Hey, you're welcome. No doubt the pic can be improved upon but
    at least we know how good your ride looked in '71. I'm digging the
    street scene, also.
