  • 56 Belair

    Well I went and did it ! Got myself a real nice rust free 56 fordor chevy. Nice solid car , all glass is good except windshield . Only problem is the motors shot! My plan is to take the 283 out of my jeep and swap it into the 56. the 283 is low miles ( 9000 ). Also the 350 trans is going in also. should be a real nice car, pics to follow. Wish me luck !!

        Had a '55 myself waaaay back and it is the one vehicle I've had and I wish I still did. Those Tri-5 are timeless- kinda like ZZ Top! LOL!

        Are you going minimal to make it a low dollar driver or do ya have bigger plans?

            I spent way to much money on my 67 Chevelle ! this car will be running and driving, I don't want to get carried away like I did. I'm leaving the outside alone , the inside is decent ( if you like alligator skin )I might chage the front seats but that's about it.

              Coming along great! Just ordered a second set of headers, this time from Jegs. I ordered a set from summit in July but never got them . Anyone try to call summit, I was on hold twice for 30 min each time. Never got to talk to anyone and the only thing I discovered was the order was canceled . Caars going together nice . Maybe I'll use my demo derby headers Ha Ha Boojoe out

                I sold the 67 Chevelle. I now have space in my garage! I have been trying to get headers for my 56 since june, no luck yet!! Any one else having problems with orders? probably this covid 19 crap. Got the trans back from the rebuilder aand installed. I was hit bad by hurricane sally, a large oak tree fell on the front of my garage. Also a tree fell on the house! The tree guys removed the one on the house, a mear $850 an hour for 6 hours because they had to bring a large crane. The tree that hit my garage fell on the ground after bending the siding and punching a large hole in the roof and the rollup door.

                  Nice looking project. Is your Jeep motor going to fit in O.K.

                    That's crazy for sure. I order from Summit quite often and never on hold for over 5 minutes or so. Hang in there!
