1956 Chevrolet 150 Handyman Wagon. Restoration done back in 2003, with detailed photographs. Paint is done in a beautiful Sherwood Green and Pinecrest Green 2-tone combination, with # 562 beige and green 2-tone interior. This wagon is powered by a 265 V8 engine and 3 speed manual transmission. The chrome work on this vehicle is absolutely outstanding. The BF Goodrich Silvertown wide whitewalls surround chrome wire wheels, for that little bit of Bling. The factory fender skirts add a bit more nostalgia to an already Classic Wagon. Shown by Appointment only. Please call to schedule your appointment today.
Looking through our inventory, youll see a lot of Tri-5 Chevys, but one thing sticks out: there arent all that many 56s like this super clean 150 2-door post sedan. Whether thats because there are fewer of them or because their owners love them too much to part with them, we cant say. What we can say is that if youre a fan of the smooth, refined look of the 56 models, this car is an excellent choice for a turn-key rod. Painting it bright white over purple means that someone wanted to get noticed, and with that comes the responsibility to get the bodywork right. Many hobbyists feel that the 56s are the cleanest of the Tri-Fives, and the awesome two-tone finish on this one certainly reinforces that perspective. Theres no place for sloppy gaps to hide, so someone made sure they were nice and even, and while traditional two-tone paint jobs were offered by the factory, the updated palette of this car makes a statement, too. It was done not too long ago, but its been driven and enjoyed, and you cant argue with the looks this car gets on the street. The polished stainless, particularly the blinging side trim, stands out and looks fantastic, emphasizing the cars lean, sporty profile. Theres also a sizeable investment in chrome, because the bumpers, grille, and other ornamentation is in excellent shape, and despite being an updated build, there no deviations from the stock look and all the trim is present and accounted for. The interior nails the perfect blend of retro and modern, combining the original dash with upgrades like modern two-tone vinyl upholstery that looks great. Doing it this way not only gives you more comfort, but an upholstery combination that looks fantastic in the vintage Chevy bodywork. The back seat and custom door panels were stitched to match the front seat, and black carpets help keep the interior looking serious. A tilt column with refinished original wheel adds to the comfort, because youre going to want to spend a lot of time in here. The dash is full of Autometer gauges that are far more accurate than what came stock in 1956, and for entertainment, theres an iPod compatible Restrosound AM/FM stereo that fits in the dash like it was born there. The biggest modification might be the underdash modern A/C unit, but it fits in neatly enough given this cars somewhat dual personality. The trunk has a stock look with a rubber mat and spare on a steel wheel, and if you look closely, youll see that this car is also quite solid underneath. Easy and reliable cruising was the goal, and with that in mind they installed a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 with aluminum heads, HEI ignition, a Holley 4-barrel carb, and a GM Performance aluminum intake manifold. Theres plenty of flash under there, too, because youre going to want to take this one to the cruise night and open the hood, and youll dig details like the paint-matched inner fenders, firewall, and brake booster. A TH350 automatic transmission offers quick reflexes and the stock rear end hangs on a set of air shocks so this car always has just the right attitude. Long-tube headers and a dual Flowmaster exhaust system sounds awesome, and power disc brakes and a CPP power steering box show that this car was meant for the road, not just the show field. Classic Cragar mags finish the traditional look and wear 235/70/15 (front) and 275/60/15 (rear) Cooper Cobra radials. Its a safe bet to assume this car will be like all the other 56s we feature: it wont last long. Call today!
