Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this awesome 1956 Chevrolet Delray. Most will say that the Tri-Five Chevrolet is as American as it gets. Brought into production for the launch of Chevrolet s ground breaking new engine, the small block, no one had any idea the importance of these cars. The small block would live on for decades and is even still widely used today. This 56 has used a much more modern Small block as its power plant. Increasing displacement to 350 Cubic inches the engine can produce a lot more lower end power without losing any of the top end punch that they re known for. Decked out with chrome valve covers this small block looks as good as it sounds. With a nice lopey idle the cam lets everyone know that this isn t just a run of the mill small block. With other chrome accents under the hood the engine bay has just enough shine to show it off but not so much that you won t want to drive it. The 4 speed Muncie transmission controlled by the Hurst shifter makes driving this beauty a blast. The black paint is slick and shows off how nice the body is while the chrome breaks it up just enough. The inside is where this one off really comes into its own. The seats are covered in genuine leather not vinyl and boy does it make a difference. The black and cream go nicely together especially against the painted black interior. With additional touches of chrome throughout the interior compliments the exterior perfectly. If you have wanted an extremely cool car that is just a little different but not completely over the top look no further. Options on this 1956 Chevrolet Delray include; Power Steering, Tilt, Leather Interior, and Aluminum Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires.

Now featured in our Denver showroom is this very original and well kept 1956 Chevrolet Delray that is one of the few remaining survivors left! The current owner of this car purchased it from the second owner back in 1979 who had purchased from the original owner only 6 months prior but had to sell it for his wedding. Once purchased in 1979 the car was in great shape but was then taken off the frame where any N.O.S. parts he could get a hold of were replaced and was brought to the paint shop where it was repainted back to the original color combination and looked much like it did when it rolled out right off the showroom floor. After the car was finished in the early 80 s, it was shown at a few shows where it took 3 1st place trophies and one 2nd place trophy; but after only a couple years the car was put away in storage and has only been driven a couple thousand miles since! The 51,000 miles on the odometer are actual on the car and is one of the few tri-five Chevrolet s that have not been resto-modded or dramatically altered over the years. The interior has been kept original with only the need to change out the carpet and still is in excellent shape! The original 265 cubic inch V8 and 3-speed manual are still there and keep this car running down the road smoothly. An old set of bias ply tires are still wrapped around the original wheels and really adds to the original look of the car. This 1956 Delray is a great car for someone who appreciates the originality of this American classic and will preserve it in its current condition. This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.

1956 Chevrolet Del Ray The Chevrolet Delray, named after Delray Beach, Florida, debuted in 1954 as an optional trim level on two-door models of Chevrolets mid-range 210 series. For the Tri-Five years, the Del Ray was essentially an interior option package for the plain 210 two door sedan. It featured an upgraded vinyl upholstery with waffle-like pleating, color-keyed to the exterior, along with carpeting and other minor upgrades. This custom 1956 Del Ray has undergone an extensive restoration and customization process. Some of that process has been upgrading to more modern conveniences, some structural fixes, and others are power related. On all ends attention to detail has been paid. A quick starter that gives the appearance of a trailer queen but is definitely a goer! Exterior A stunning white through yellow to orange and then red appears like it was poured on to the car from front to back. The paint presents very nicely and shows some of the efforts that went into this car. 17 Eagle alloy wheels are on all 4 corners, with P245/45ZR17 tires on front, and P245/40ZR17 on the rear. Glass is clean and scratch free. Consigner states new chrome on the front and rear bumpers, hood ornament, trunk brightwork and taillights. Passenger rocker panel has been replaced and there are new body mounts all around. Interior A front split bench, and rear bench, as well as door panels are covered in rich red crushed velour, edged with white piping, and plenty of white buttons emulating the original Del Ray waffle-like pleating but with bling. Door panels have a clean gray panel added to the velour but on top creating a nice contrast to the chromed handles. A red metal dash with original gauges and Chevy pie shaped curves imbedded within it. Additional gauges are added to the dash, as well as a custom radio, a Rain Gear intermittent wiper system, a custom adjustable steering wheel and machined aluminum column. Sitting in a sea of red carpet is a B&M Quicksilver shifter. A perfect red headliner, and a custom stitched Chevy logo on the rear deck makes this writer feel like he is watching TV in Elvis living room. Drivetrain A strong 350ci Chevrolet engine backed by a 700R4 automatic transmission sits in the clean engine bay. So nice it even has its own vanity mirror on the underside of the hood. Providing that mill with cooling is a new 3 core aluminum radiator/fan. Exhaling is accomplished easily via Sanderson Jet Hot Coated Headers, and an aluminum exhaust with an H pipe. Underneath, a Mustang II front suspension, rack and pinion steering, a new wiring harness, and traction bars. Disc brakes in front, and drum brakes bring up the rear. A solid build with bling, a resto-mod with conveniences and upgrades, a daily driver if you desire, and a head turner, this 1956 eye candy is definitely a shower and a goer.
