    Helloooo!! New member with a '56 2-Door Sedan

    Hey all! Jeff here from Western Ohio.

    I just picked up a '56 Coronet 2-Door Sedan base model out of Connecticut for a great deal. I don't have many pictures yet, but here's one from they day after I got it home.

    It's in absolutely phenomenal shape. I'm basically it's third "permanent" owner - the original owner sold it to a body shop owner about a decade ago, he held on to it for a little bit but did nothing with it, and then sold it to a long-time friend of his who hangs out at the shop a bunch. I bought it from that guy. The body shop replaced the rocker panels on it many years ago, but found nothing else on the car that needed work. They painted it in black primer and the most-recent owner had aspirations to rod it out a bit, but he enjoyed the fact that he could just hop in it and go to shows/meets, so he just left it together.

    Me, my plans are to turn it into a true street rod - I'm going to upgrade the brakes (manual drum/drum to power disc/disc), add an air-ride suspension, shave the door handles and some trim pieces, chop the top 2-3 inches, and do a two-tone paint job. My plan is to spend 3-4 years working on it.

    The first pic is current, the second pic is a Photoshop of my idea for it! (And yeah, I've already picked a better set of wheels!)
