Just traded this one away for a 40 ford deluxe coupe.
Latest project in the shop. Kind of a Two Lane Blacktop vibe going on.
My delivery via 2 door wagon.
I like this one.
Here is my 56. I wish I knew the history on it. Bought it in Connecticut from a widow. Has a roll bar, drive shaft loop, semi-radiused wheel wells, and lots of other racing parts. After a lot of work, it is now driven almost daily.
Wow, I don't usually care for '56's, but that's the nicest one I've ever seen.
Can we see more photos?
Here are a couple shots of my friends 56 post. He now is running a Mooneyham 671 on the car, I haven't seen or heard it yet, but he is much happier with it over the tunnel ram I guess.
That 56 is amazing.
Yeah, he makes me jealous with his skills.... Todd and TomCat(painter that did the lace, panels, hand lettering and stripping) did it all in his garage at home in like six months from this.
That orange '56 is badass and that laced and flaked '56 is stunning!!
Thanks very much. I am terrible at taking pictures, but here are some more. One shows the interesting gauge cluster on the dash. It appears to be custom made for a 55/56, and I have never seen another like it. The side view shows the radiused wheel wells. The engine is a mix of 70s (valve covers and Weiand Xcelerator) and 80s (the braided hose which is next on the list to go). The last shows the car and the girl who puts up with my car
Wow, just period clean up that engine bay, and you're there, congrats!
Ive got several. 6 55,s three 56 and two 57. Only two are running a 55 two dr wagon and a 56 more door. Ive been trying to sell the 56. However I think it will get the conversion into a two door.
Just picked up a new project this week. This car has been covered in this yard since 1972. Going to get her home and start working on her next week.

Never seen a front bumper guard like that on a 56...
Almost there. Need to finish the Muncie and put the drive line in.
Sorry patina haters,but I would have to say it would be ashamed to paint this car.
A good clean up maybe,paint no.

My '57 that I bought a year ago last March.
Somehow, I missed this thread. Here's a few of my favorites...
