Description

Nordic Blue and Cirrus Blue fight for your attention on the straight steel panels of this car. With the Cirrus Blue covering the front two thirds of this car, for the hood, roof, and front quarter panel and half of the door. A shiny trim spear breaks the line between the Cirrus Blue and the darker Nordic Blue which covers the beginnings of the rear quarter, below the belt line on the doors, and the entire trunk and back of the car. Up front the bass mouth grille with its central post new for 1956 is in presentable condition with an easily spotable rust hole on the bottom driver's side. The grille is in the same condition sans the rust hole. The glass trimmings are all shiny and nice, and the massive rear bumper shows some dulling. Trunk badging is near perfect. Rocket nose red taillights are at either end of the rear fins and have a shiny bezel in front of them next to the metal. The rear backup lights are formed in the fender metal and are also round. For all 4 corners we note machined shiny disc wheel covers wrapped in wide whites.
The original but very clean and nicely patinaed engine which is in 324ci V8 form. Green Rocket 88 valve covers and an oil bath air cleaner protecting a 4-barrel carburetor below. On back is a Jet-A-Way Hydramatic 4-speed automatic transmission, and this pushes power rearward to a 3.41 gear ratio rear axle. All original drivetrain here boys and girls.
