Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1956

Brought back from near extinction, the Corvette returned better than ever in 1956

GM’s design change and increase in power provided the foundation for what the Corvette dynasty would be built upon with increasing sales year-to-year for the next decade.

Visually the Corvette changed very little in its first three years of production. However 1956 will mark the Corvettes first major stylistic makeover. Retaining the aggressive grill design of the prior models, the frontal styling of the 1956 was modified significantly, with new fender accommodating chrome around headlights mounted higher and no longer covered by prior wire mesh stone guards. For the first time the Corvette received his new iconic side coves and clean sloping rear fenders with neatly integrated taillight. The Corvette also received a pair of roll up windows, technically changing the car from a roadster to a convertible body style. 2 265 cubic inch V-8 engines were now available, reflecting the relentless development that had just begun on the soon to be legendary small block V-8 engine. The bulk of the 1956 Corvette production Numbering 3080 cars, was equipped with the duel quad solid lifter engine producing a stout 225 brake horsepower.


The car offered here is just that engine and is finished in onyx black with silver coves and red interior, as presented following a body off professional restoration from Arizona a few years ago. In addition to the duel quad engine the Corvette is equipped with the three speed close ratio manual transmission that was standard in 1956 . AM/FM cassette radio(after market). All of the cars gauges work including the clock, and the interior is of the correct pattern. The wheels are shod in white wall radial tires for improve modern drivability. The car is in outstanding condition and runs and drives as well as it looks. This car has the correct all original drive train engine,tranny rear end etc. The corvette being from out west the all painted chassis looks as correct and good as the day it rolledoff the assembly line. there is nothing on this car that doesn'tappear new or as well as everything workingcorrectly. The bright work shines like new. Here is an opportunityto win this blue chip piece of history corvette that you can enjoy as well as a good solid investment.

This car appears to be as close to a fresh restoration as could be with all the bugs worked out with just a few thousand miles since restoration. If you want to buy a museum car that you can NOT drive go ahead and pay well over a $100K.
