Restoration - 1956 Chev Convertible - Completed - April 2008

56chev




This is what the finished car will look like! 1956 Chev convertible finished in Maroon over white, with a white roof, but there is a lot of work to get it to that stage. The body has been bead blasted and underneath all the filler, the true extent of the rust and dodgy repairs could be seen.
