The 1956 Chevrolet Corvette has a true vintage style, but you also instantly know this one has much more. Its vivid paint is your gateway to a full custom interior, five-speed stick-shift, and fuel-injected V8 that makes this an awesome custom restomod.
The paint on this one holds close to the Corvette's Cascade Green, but on a build with only 5,500 on the odometer, there's a bit more personality to it. The added character also comes from a sporty style that eliminates the front .....
bumper overriders and adds American Racing salt flat wheels. It's the kind of things many people did to their Corvettes back in the day, but this one didn't stop there. You have terrific custom pieces. The side coves are actually painted trim used to contain the custom flame graphics. And the rear has a custom bumper design where it no longer need to hold the exhaust tips, because you have a cool quad-tip design that signals a more modern machine. Even with the updated look, this one keeps that classic look we all love. The tooth grille shines like a 10,000-watt smile. And the '56 car ushered in the era of the headlights fully up front and a clean design without tailfins. And so this restomod still celebrates that iconic look.
The gray convertible top provides a nice contrast to the turquoise exterior, but for true distinction, you're going to want to take it down and show off the full custom light tan interior. There are terrific details, like the classic-style upholstery that's now finished in a supple leather. And the door panels, dash, shift boot, and carpet piping are all done to match. There are well-integrated upgrades, like the power windows, heater controls, and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette. Plus, you'll love the look when the full digital gauge package lights up the dash with its cool blue glow.
Under the hood, the clean inner walls really funnel your attention to the shining heart in the middle. This is a true restomod, and so they made sure this was a proper tidy and upgraded powerhouse. Not only is this 350 cubic-inch V8 larger than anything offered in '56, but it also has been upgraded with an Edelbrock intake, MSD distributor, and shorty headers feeding a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. It's all topped with an Edelbrock electronic fuel injection system for the best in power and consistency. And to make sure you have the best control of this enhanced motor, you have an upgraded Tremec five-speed manual transmission. It makes for a package that gives you an awesome powertrain upgrade without losing the classic C1 Corvette feeling.
This was a multi-year build that was a labor of love, and the quality shows. So if you want a restomod that still gives you the right classic car style, don't miss this Corvette. Call now!
