Bought it in 1966, still in high school, still have car , did frame off in 1982, have only put 2500 miles on it crusing woodward.
Just putting on all new brakes, cylinders & stuff, switching to Dot 5, Dot 3 wrecked everything, just a tune in the spring & everything will be ready for Woodward again.
That 56 would look Good as a Gasser!!
I’m with Clyde! Tri-5’s and straight axles just go together. heheheh
I ALMOST DID IT BACK IN 67 WHEN I WAS RACING IT BUT I GOT DRAFTED, Did a frame off in 82 and just left it as a Hot Rod, Careful ! Clyde’s quite the character
Love the ‘56! I had a ‘56 Bel Air Post back in ‘68. It had a 327, Muncie 4 speed and depending on if I was just cruising or doing some light to light cruising (Ha!) I ran a 4:11 or a 5:33. Oh, yeah it also has flip fiberglass front end. I’ve tried locating it just to see if I could buy it back if it is still around but no luck thus far.Butch
great looking ‘56 BelAir. I had one for a few years, sometimes wish I still kept it. Mine was Krokus Yellow and Black. Always liked the lines of the ‘56 Chevys. See you around the Hub! Bernie
The 56 looks like it just rolled out of the plant!I did a 56 years ago but it took a good 4 years before it looked close to yours!
