Background on 1956 Chevy 2dr Sedan
My Son and I bought this car from a man who had it for several years. He was the second owner. The car was a TWO TEN DELRAY two-door sedan, a six-cylinder engine with a standard transmission. The VIN is B56N062069. He had the engine overhauled sometime before we know of the car and it was in running condition. The car was in fairly good condition. He had someone to start some restoration but gave up on the idea after very little work was done and sold the car to me and my son, making us the 3rd owner.
Restorations That Were Done After I Became The Owner
The restorations were done by Georgetown Classic Car Restorations, LLC. This company is located in Georgetown, Texas.
