For Sale: 1956 Chevrolet 150 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1956 Chevrolet 150 two-door sedan has the stock look of high quality in its first impression. But like a proper street machine sleeper, the dual-quad V8 under the hood also lets you bring serious power to the pavement. And the level of freshness in the restoration makes this incognito Chevy an award-worthy total package.


The '57 Chevy has the legend of the Black Widow, which were the lightest and strongest bodies (150 two-door sedans) matched with the meanest powerhouses around. And so this '56 seems to want to slot in as the prequel. But before we show you the power, take some time to appreciate the quality of the full build. The paint has such a high-quality gloss that you'll likely tell your friends it's Piano Black. And the way it smoothly rolls over the excellent panels really drives home that premium appearance. The 150 may have been the base model, but that still means you get some terrific brightwork on the wraparound chrome bumpers, full-length trim, jet-inspired hood ornament, and the '56 car's unique grille. So while this one is a classic sleeper, it has also been restored to be a present-day stunner.


The interior restoration brought it back to stock status, too, and the appeal here is as clear as black and white. The timeless two-tone is intertwined throughout the carpeting, dash, and headliner. Plus, the upholstery really looks terrific with the black cloth inserts and white polka dot pattern. The door panels were even done to match. Being a lightweight car means less brightwork trim and no radio. But the rumble from what's under the hood makes it all worth it.


Under the hood is an era-correct block for the 265 cubic-inch V8. And if you read your option sheet in 1956, a few lucky people got the dual four-barrel carburetor option. So we're glad to see that street-eating dual-quad power upgrade here. They spent time getting the details right. That's why you not only have the large triangle topper with dual air filters hanging off the sides, but even the decals on those are bright and correct. The red block with Chevrolet valve covers, Delco-Remy generator, and GM hoses are all part of the extra attention paid that will have you showing off every inch at the car show. We really mean it. The undercarriage is so clean that you'll probably put a mirror underneath just so others get a full view. More than just look great, this was the kind of car that was meant to be driven. The V8 fires up with the kind of gusto you expect from a quality build, and the X-pipe dual exhaust gives it a sweet tune. And all those fresh suspension components mean a solid and confident feeling going down the road. As a true classic Chevrolet 150, most of your features are manual - including the column-shifted three-speed transmission. It's a great way to keep your sense in touch with the road. However, you do have proper modern tires that mean this speedy Chevy has better traction and grip than the original.


This is an outstanding vintage package that loves to give you a true vintage street machine. So if you're looking for a sleek black legend, call today!
