  1. That looks good but be fair warned moderators may remove your addition to this thread as it is an off topic car being 3 years newer than the cut off of 1963

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I know it doesnt look like much but i did what funds allowed. The top picture was the day i bought it. Replaced the front crossmember, radiator and tranny cooler, rims and tires, put the through the bumper exhaust tips back, fixed a bunch of bugs, and racked up some miles!

  26. Don't knock your car man . That's a great looking 56 you have there . Tinted glass , nice paint , black wheels , spyder caps , exhaust tips . All adds up to a nice looking driver . Thanks for posting . Andy.

    Thanks for the compliment. I enjoy the heck out of it. It was the car i wanted and i was lucky enough to find a good deal on a nice car, i couldn't be happier with it. Its pretty amazing what some of these guys are whipping out in a year

    Been picking away at this for the past year. Lot of work ironing out the body and fitting the doors. Roll bar is ready to weld in. Motor is done and ready to go. Lots more to do, but nothing I'd rather be doing. :D

    Jim. You work like the Tasmanian Devil. I don't know how you do all this work and still have time for 26 thousand plus posts on this (never mind any other sites....) I am truly impressed.
