I’m a fan of car designs that have “hips”. I especially like the two-tone and trim that emphasizes the break in the lines on this design. This barn find 88 is located in Grants Pass, Oregon and is offered here on eBay opening at $5,500 with reserve not met yet. Sporting a transmission that added “Park” for 1956 and a 230 horsepower V-8, both of which were rebuilt in 1988 4,000 miles ago, it isn’t slow either. This one has a few rust locations, but supposedly is still wearing its original paint and has all its stainless steel trim, although some is not installed at the moment.
All four original wheel covers are present and I like the solid appearance of the car in general. You would have to source a $380 windshield and a side window, but the side window is flat glass and shouldn’t be difficult. Drive it now and improve it as you go along! Oh, and if you don’t like this 1956, there’s a 1957 on eBay right here.
