My newly acquired 1956 Special

15 posts in this topic

I bought the car in January.  Anyone recognize her?  Needs brake work but I'm happy so far.

Absolutely gorgeous!!! Can we see see more.😄

 

I seem to to recall maybe Earl Beauchamp here owning a '56 in this color. That is one of my favorite color schemes of that year, coral over white.

Tahiti Coral/Dover White. Thanks everyone.  It's strange - some don't even look twice, some can't seem to tear themselves away.  Black/white interior would not have been my first choice, but it's growing on me.  Has tissue dispenser under dash.

AVGWARHAWK Dad had a 54 Super 2-dr hdtp and a 54 Century 4 dr.  He bought the Century around 1964, the seller said it had a brand new 4 bbl carb that cost $70.  That sounded like a lot of money at the time.  I drove the Century when I turned 16 that same year.
