Description:

We''ve had a lot of success lately with panel trucks, and this 1956 Chevy sedan delivery is one of the coolest of them all. With big block power, a restrained look, and all the creature comforts, it''s a muscle car that merely looks like a vintage delivery van. And it''s a heck of a lot of fun. In truth, this merely looks like a 1956 Chevy, as the body was dropped on the frame of a 1969 Chevelle SS396, giving it the moves of one of the greatest muscle cars of all time without affecting its utility. Cloaking it in black is exactly the right choice, because this car doesn''t want to take prisoners, and the finish work ensures that nobody thinks it''s still working for a living. Someone spent a ton of money on the project, and while it''s a few years old now, the black paint still shines up well and the flat surfaces that would ordinarily advertise your business are reflective enough to shave in each morning. All the original ''55 Chevy trim was retained, and the restrained look of this particular panel delivery is a big part of its appeal. Bright chrome bumpers, a nice-looking grille, and just a single strip of stainless trim on the flanks gives it a traditional look that''s helped by the slight rake and upgraded wheels. When you climb inside, you''ll find swiveling 1977 Monte Carlo bucket seats wrapped in black and silver that certainly contribute to the muscle car vibe. Matching door panels work well with the slick monochromatic look, and the dash is a mixture of old and new, with original 1956 gauges augmented by a dash-mounted tach and auxiliary gauges built into the dash. Under-dash A/C helps make this a cruiser you can truly take anywhere, including cross-country, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo helps to pass the time. A tilt steering column and what looks like a vintage Tuff Wheel add a racy look, as does the T-handle B&M shifter which is ideally placed for manual gear changes. The cargo area is fully upholstered, offering black carpets on the floors and custom silver Chevrolet bowties on the side panels, along with nicely integrated speakers for the stereo system. Grab you gear, because this sucker''ll carry it all! As I said, underneath it''s all 1969 Chevelle SS396, including the stout 396 cubic inch V8 powerplant. Already plenty stout, it''s augmented with a Holley carb, Edelbrock intake, and a set of long-tube headers that bolster its already robust torque curve. Aside from the tall air cleaner, it looks fairly OEM in there, right down to the Chevy Orange paint on the block and chrome valve covers. It''s backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and 12-bolt rear end, so it was clearly designed to be driven, and with the Chevelle''s front suspension, power disc brakes, and coil-spring rear suspension, it rides and handles better than you''d expect. Classic American Racing Torque Thrust wheels are never a bad choice on a vintage-looking rod, and they carry recent blackwall radials that fill the wheel wells perfectly. A very cool build that covers all the bases, this 1955 Chevy is either a great road trip machine or the ideal promotional vehicle for your business. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
