A nicely done Tri-five, ready for endless nights of cruising, for less than $35K??? Classic white over maroon, small block motivation, power everything and air, all in a solid chassis with excellent fit and finish; what more could you ask for?

The '56 Chevrolet has one of the most recognizable shapes in the automotive world, and with good reason. Clean lines, smooth, restrained trim and excellent proportions make for a handsome car with a ton of customizing potential. Some cars get restored correctly down to the nuts and bolts, some are wild creations from Mars and some end up like this car here with a clean restoration with some subtle touches. Let's start with the undercarriage.

You'll find clean floors and suspension components on this frame off job. Finished in satin black for durability and drivability the floors and frame are in excellent shape as this was an extremely solid platform to build on. Nice additions include power steering (with all new components) power front disc brakes and larger rear drums and all new lines and hoses. There's a stainless exhaust system from the ceramic coated headers back to the stainless tips, four classic Cragar SS mags with 215/65 and 235/70/15 rear radials and chrome oil and trans pans.

The Flint-built body was in excellent shape before bodywork started so large scale repairs were simply not needed. The original color scheme was yellow over green—I doubt you'll find many people who think that sounds better than the crisp white that's on the car now! The trim (and there's a lot on a '56) is in excellent, shiny condition, as are the bumpers. New tinted glass sits in all openings. Old school nods go to the headlight eyebrows and stainless vent shades. Custom touches include the small accent paintwork in contrasting maroon and navy. The body's shape was left alone - Chevrolet did an excellent job on the styling; why mess with a good thing?

Pop the hood and examine the power plant. That's 283ci worth of small block power and smoothness in there. The cam's on the small side so all of the power features work as they should and the car will idle all day in traffic with the A/C on and not throw a fit. A polished Edelbrock carb sits on a polished Weiand Stealth dual plane unit handle the induction, a billet distributor throws the spark and ceramic headers clear the exhaust. Mr. Gasket polished aluminum valve covers, a chrome alternator and A/C package add sparkle and braided lines handle the fluids. A Die Hard battery sits in the corner and a cutoff switch rides on the passenger fender - that's a handy place to have one for show or storage! An aluminum radiator with an electric fan keeps things cool and a rebuilt Turbo 350 sends power to the wheels; it's all as bulletproof as it is foolproof!

We don't have many cars here with a more comfortable interior than this '56 sports. Done in soft maroon velour this is a parlor on wheels! Road and drive train noise is well dampened thanks to the upholstered surfaces. There's a Corvette steering wheel on the tilt column in front of you, Classic Instruments silver faced gauges feeding you information, Classic Autosounds cassette deck playing the tunes and dual power front seats to keep everyone happy! The A/C is cold, there's a mere 1600 miles on the odometer since restoration, the motor's purring like a kitten and there are four million miles of roads in the United States alone; drop the shifter into drive and go!

With its crisp exterior, super comfortable interior and solid drive train this is a driver to keep for the long haul. It's a classic and it's finished right. The mechanical team has just gone through the car and given it their 'ready to go' seal of approval. Where you go is up to you! If you've been looking for a nice cruise night Tri-five, this is not a car to pass on!
