Chevrolet Handyman 1956 Description

We love this 1956 Chevrolet 210 Handyman wagon, because just like the Nomad, it's cool two-door styling is rare. But as you look over the ultra-slick paint, custom A/C interior, and powerful stroker V8 under the hood, you'll realize that this classic Is in a class all of its own.A black like this is the direct result of care, sweat, and plenty of cash. You have to start by getting the sheetmetal to look great and line up evenly. Then apply a deep black and plenty of modern clearcoat until this has a luster that will make you swear the car was forged from onyx. With a shine this nice, only the best brightwork will do. The '56 Chevys have a lot of unique trim, especially for a rare Handyman. That's why we're excited to see it not only complete, but also everything looks mirror-like. From the ultra wide grille that looks like a 10,000- watt smile, to the wraparound bumpers, to the sweeping side trim, the whole car makes a shining first impression. And while this is a true stunner, the large 17-inch torque thrust-style alloys are there to hint that there's plenty of performance within.Open the door, and you'll see more great signs of investment. Few color combinations look more premium than a black car with a camel leather interior. So when it's as new and as fresh as every inch of this one, you're going to get a lot of attention. The complete custom setup starts with bucket seats that would look at home in a Corvette. Plus, they are power adjustable to give you far more comfort than any '50s machine ever could. The color on the seats coordinates with the side panels, carpet trim, and suede headliner for an amazing uniform presentation. It even matches the custom center console that's home to great modern conveniences like the AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod hookup and controls for the R134a air conditioning. That makes a wagon like this the perfect machine to carry around plenty of family and friends (and the luggage, too!) But the best treats are reserved strictly for the driver. You get the artful Chevy factory wheel in gloss black, and as you start to look over the dashboard, you'll be happy to see it retains the dual cowl appearance that made these Chevys so cool. But this is still a full custom setup that includes a full set of Classic Instruments gauges.Since you're going to want to be showing off every inch of this unique Chevy, the engine bay doesn't disappoint. Within the black painted fender walls, this V8 radiates power with nearly every component shining (we dare you to find something else that can be polished.) This is a stunner for the car shows, and when you look beyond the shine, there's some serious performance substance, too. It's a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and performance headers. While the growl of the Magnaflow dual exhaust will make you love the performance even when this Chevy is standing still, there is much more here than just pure power. For example, the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is stout enough for the enhanced V8, and it also has highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, the new power steering system, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern tires are perfect anytime driving features. There are even dual electric fans to keep this Chevy running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C running. That makes this custom the perfect choice for driving near or far.It comes complete with restoration photos, so you can experience this rare Handyman's transformation. You already know that the paint, interior, and motor are each amazing on their own. So when it's in one total package, you know this is an opportunity at something truly unique. Call today!!!
