I acquired this 1956 Chevy in 1980, then kept it in sunny Florida ever since.
I conducted a 100% totalFrame-Off Restorationin 1991 (Resto-Mod type).
I conducted aRestoration Upgraderecently in 2019-20 adding more technology.
The entire car and all painted parts were acid tank dipped and stripped.
There is no rust or bondo in this vehicle build, it is a solid steel car.

TheEXTERIORis restored to original condition except for cool wheels & tires.
The entire car and all painted parts were professionally primed and painted.
Matador Red color, external is Lacquer and inside and under is Imron paint.

All new window glass, seals, bolts, screws, washers, nuts, clips, shims, fuel tank and lines.
All chrome pieces are new or professionally re-chromed, re-buffed.
All stainless-steel molding pieces were professionally re-buffed.

New head & tail & backup lights, emblems, V’s, hood bird, grille, mirrors, antenna,
door locks, trunk lock, license plate bracket, brake lines.

TheINTERIORis restored to mostly original condition except for these mods.
Power windows, Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, Air Conditioning, Tilt Steering Wheel, Stereo and Speakers, Sun Tach, Lokar gas, clutch, brake pedals, 5-speed shifter.

TheDRIVETRAINis high performance muscle car-oriented yet car club cruise-able.
The engine is a GM Perf Parts crate motor HO 350 ci / 345 hp (i.e., the legendary ZZZ

The ZZZ PN 10134338 has 4-bolt mains, aluminum cylinder heads (like the L98 Corvette engine), a Z28 high-rise dual-plane aluminum intake manifold, hypereutectic 9.8:1 pistons, forged steel crank and rods, and a single-pattern 235-degree hydraulic camshaft with 0.480-inch lift. The ZZZ is rated at 345 hp (with 650 CFM carb) right out of the crate.Adding a 750-CFM carb and an Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap intake, and this engine makes 370 hp with 410 ft-lb of torque. Adding the GM hydraulic roller Hot Cam and this engine will produce 400 hp and on pump gas. Pretty cool.

The transmission is a DougNash/Richmond“STREET 5-SPEED”. (i.e., the 4 + 1)

It is a “close ratio” in gears 1 - 4(3.27, 2.13, 1.57, 1.23), with 5thgear at 1:1. Itallows a lowerrear-end ratio of 3.08 and still have aclose ratio transmission capable ofaccelerating like a Muncie M21 with4.11 rear-end gears. The Street 5-Speed allows enthusiasts to use a 3.08 rear-end in 5thgear for highway cruising and still get the awesome close ratio 1 - 4 off the line acceleration of a M21/4.11 combo. This works great.

The rear-end is a 79 Camaro 10-bolt 8.5” model.

It is a restored “posi-traction” rear, with 3.08 gear that is an ideal match to the above Doug Nash 5-speed. New wheel bearings, seals and complete new brake parts.

OtherMECHANICALcomponent enhancements below were added to improve this 56 classic.

All new wiring harnesses, fuse panel, fuses, gauges, alternator conversion, starter, and trunk mounted battery.
