How nice is this sinister-looking 1956 Chevrolet street machine? So nice that it was a Hot Rod Magazine feature car; won Best Street Machine at the Great Labor Day Cruise and took First Place in the Street Machine Custom 1949-1964 Class at the 2012 Grand National Roadster Show. The latter, of course, the “Granddaddy” of custom car shows. No wonder: with a complete frame-off buildup, it boasts gorgeous Triple Black paint under glasslike clearcoat on both its superb sheet metal and American Torque Thrust wheels, contrasted to great effect by gleaming chrome and brightwork. Its custom diamond-tufted interior upholstery recalls the Tony Nancy-stitched dragsters of old, as does its 496-cid, 750-hp blown, dual-quad aluminum-head big block engine. A four-link rear with coilover adjustable shocks, four-wheel Wilwood disc brake system and custom stainless steel exhaust complete the cars performance underpinnings.
