    looks like the mirror is pitted as is the door handles. I'd replace those and cruise.

    maybe get some fancy hubcaps.

    definitly cruise though.

    not a damn thing wrong with cruising an old stocker 4 door. been there, done that.

    Nothing wrong with flipping stuff at a profit.

    Nothing to hate. That ride is beautiful . I would drive the hell out of it. Well after I lost the white walls (just not MY thing).....
     
  11. Hell, I'd drive it! That would be my third green '56 car of the '56s I've owned!

    Ok I'll go radical here! Get a straight axle, Thunderbolt teardrop hood, Y-block, and fender headers! Damn I wish I could draw cuz I'd have a blast coming up with a pic of that one!!!

    For real drive the pants off it!

    I'd search ebay for factory accessories... I'm all about the accessories.

    then I'd pretty up the motor. Y-block? Tbird valve covers, rams horn exhaust and 3 carbs... yeah baby!

    Why ruin a good thing? Drive the wheels off of it as is or flip it.

    give me the keys
     
  19. Leave the whitewalls!!!

    WSW tires in '56 were a big deal! Only the cheapskates and cops had blackwalls. Anybody that was into cars in '56 wanted whitewall tires.

    I like the idea of putting some neat hubcaps on it. I'd go with Oldsmobile Fiesta flipper-caps. Make sure it has dual exhaust and some throaty mufflers....And then DRIVE IT. It's a super ride!!

    If you want to go fast, put a 312 Y-block in it with a 4-bbl and a McCulloch blower. All period correct stuff...and damn fast!.

    Id just do the usual. Nose it deck it, lose the handles, emblems and mirrors, a set of Firestone wide whites and 57 Caddys with a 54 Chevy grille that has 9765897568975 teeth. Oh and perhaps a set of 56 Merc station wagon taillights. I would keep the color exactly as is with no pinstriping or anything like that.

    Nice daily driver as is.
     
  25. Maaayyybbbeee lower it in the front and/or the back (preferably just the back), but only if it maintains its functionality. I can agree with "pretty up the motor". What kind of "accessories"?

    Only thing I would do is refinish the steering wheel (DIY of course)


    Then drive, rinse repeat....
