    Now that is a rare car! 56 first year for the 4dr hardtop and the intricate sissor type rear window arrangment.The vent window "folds" onto the main glass as it rolls down.
    Power windows,power steering and power brakes. Plus the HEMI!
    Very desirable car---for me!
    I want!

    Wow, the body looks complete and solid. Should be a relatively easy restoration. Good thing it's all the way on the other side of the continent! If it was local to me, I'd be trying to figure out how to hide it from my wife. ;)

    That is a solid looking car with a lot of potential. Definitely one you don't see very often, if at all.

    Now I find out my '56 was a rare car, 47 years too late!!!
    As stated, looks solid and would be a nice cruiser. Hope it gets back on the road!!
