1956 Chevy Build-Off

by | Aug 28, 2014 | Restoration

Hello, My Friends, This Post Is [ #1  ] of the 1956 Chevy Build off  ..

VOTE  in the  comments @ the Very End of the Post    Color and Rim style ” interior etc ..

This first post is to come up with some different color options. As you already know I’m looking for suggestions on some color options. This is just to get a headstart and some input.

We will be adding future posts keeping everyone updated on the 1956 Chevy Build off as we move forward with the project.

It will most likely consume around 2000 hours, and we have plenty of time before we need Mix Paint.

Here is the Beast. Before we start, we will be going out West to pick this baby up the first week of September.

I will add a few pictures of the trip. It’s a real Barn Find, tucked away for over 30 years.

Please vote in the comments for Color and Rim style interior, etc.

Do you know about the 1956 Chevrolet History?

Among the many Chevrolet that were made, the 1956 Chevrolet was the first one in history to receive a facelift.

The facelifting that the Chevrolet got gave it a straight full-width grille, pleasing all the customers who did not favor the Ferrari-inspired 55 front end. The Chevrolet two-tone body side treatment it had, gave a sense of motion even when it was standing silent.

The lovely front and good contoured rear wheel openings completed the Speedline style of the Chevrolet 1956. The single housing integrated the taillights, the backlight, stoplight, and the left one held gas filler.

This was an idea that was accepted by Cadillac.

Among the best 1956 Chevrolet History was a new sport, Sedan. This Chevrolet had pillarless doors and looked handsome with the windows rolled down.

It allowed easy entry into the back seat since it was very spacious. There came the two doors Chevrolet 1956 that topped the price. The rear wheel sheet metal and the interior were just like the Bel Airs, but it was lacking the uniqueness of the original trim. The company manufactured 7886 cars only. The Bel Air was the least cost-wise, which was going at the cost of $2025.

One could get a full-sized car that had a powerful horsepower engine of 265. The Famous 283 came out a year later in the 1957 corvettes and the Belairs.

The 1956 Chevrolet History car was tested and very powerful since it could go for 12 miles to ascend Pikes Peak in the United States of America. It was one of the known cars to keep a legacy. The Chevrolet 1956 is very popular even today since it was a unique model. It was a reference for making the newer car models.

Many pictures came from other sources. These are here for us to get some ideas going. Let’s give some credit to the builders on these pages.

Some images we use are from unknown sources.
