This '56 Corvette shell and chassis has been sitting in storage for over 35 years. It was stripped in 1974 for a restoration, but as we all know sometimes real life gets in the way of our hobbies. The original 265 engine is long gone as is the rest of the drive train. No word on whether this was originally a 3 speed manual or a Powerglide automatic.

The body looks ugly, but seems pretty straight under those multiple layers of paint and primer. There were 3467 Corvettes produced in 1956, which is a big part of the reason for their value. Compare the early Corvette production numbers to something like the Mustang, which had over 500,000 produced it's first year.

  2. admin says:

    Sorry, this one isn’t for sale. It was submitted by someone, but they said it was a car they had been trying to get for a while and it wasn’t for sale.

    i dave graziani bought this car near detroit mich.approx 4 years ago along with many untold problems and missing parts that was told that they were in the boxes after 50,000 later it became a 1956 corvette again. buyers beware on these older corvettes most owners will tell you anything to sell you junk.and most of them dont have a clue even what they are even selling in the first place .thanks dave graziani phoenix az .

  4. Fred Ellermann says:

    I suggest parting this car out i.e. fenders,trunk lid body parts, seat frame and springs, steering wheel. The cost to restore this car would be overwhelming and would NEVER be done.

    I have taken a 69 and have brought it back to life from a junker! Yes Corvette America made a lot of money off of me. But 34 grand later, this is a gem! Well it will be as soon as the carpeting and seats go back in. Everything is new from frame up. Including rear end, new Vintage air, complete engine rebuild and trans. 6 years of work. To recoup I need over 50K. Will get maybe 34K. So much fun. Want to do a 54.
