Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1956

I am reluctantly selling this '56 pickup due to downsizing of my Chevy truck/muscle car collection. I have owned the trucksince 2003. The truck was a California owned vehicle its entire life until I purchased it and the body shows it. No rot, honest sheet metal with some minor surface rust / patina here and there. This truck has the real patina that many painters and builders try to emulate today, but nothing beats the real thing. Truck has always been stored indoors under my ownership and continuously tweaked and upgraded with the goal of building a quick, safe reliable vehicle with a hot rod flair while preserving its well earned patina. Just changes all fluids and went through the truck in the last month. Needs nothing. very reliable and built to long haul / power tour with a/c on. I have put approximately 600 miles on this truck since built.
