Rare 1956 Business Coupe. This model has the lowest production numbers of any 1956
Chevrolet. (Right next to the Nomad) There are very few of these business coupes still in existence today. The 150
was mainly conceived as a fleet model sold from 1953 to 1957 and little effort was spent marketing it to the
average buyer. It was most popular with police, state governments, small businesses, economy-minded consumers and
hot rodders. Chevrolet sold substantially less one-fifties than two-tens or Bel Airs in every year of its life.
In 1956, Chevrolet's mildly disguised race package was more commonly referred to as the "Business Coupe". These
Vehicles were the plain vanilla versions of the "police package" cars and were available only in the 2 door post
body style. They featured a sparse option list, had rubber floor mats in place of carpeting, fixed rear windows,
and an item known as a package tray which consisted of a 3/8 inch fiberboard where the back seat was originally
intended to be.
This beautiful, understated, fully restored and painted in its original color (Indian Ivory) rare Chevy Business
Coupe is running with a 355 Chevy engine (350 bored 30 over) with a mild thumper cam and puts out approximately 300
HP. The transmission is a turbo 350 with a shift kit. The rear original to the car we are approximating to be a
3:23. AT 60 MPH the car is taching at 2000 RPM. This rare beauty can be driven anywhere in comfort and handles as
well as it looks. Only 4600 miles has been put on this classic since the restoration.
Additional features of this 1956 Chevy include: A new interior restored to as original as was practical, power
steering, power disc brakes (front), brushed aluminum tilt steering column, a sun tach, auto meter fully mechanical
gauges, tinted windows, a rear seat, perfect chrome, cragar SST's with Kelly 205/65R15 92T on the front and
255/70R15 108S on the rear. She has aluminized exhaust, flow masters with welded chrome tips, an Edlebrock
carburetor, and Edlebrock polished manifold, a chrome alternator and bracket kit, an aluminum radiator with an
aluminum overflow. A transmission cooler, and a new power steering pump. The "old school stance" was accomplished
by using A/C springs in the front and 5 leaf springs in the rear. Seat belts front and rear were also installed.
This rare Chevy is a truly beautiful example of automotive history and is sure to appreciate in value while she is
being enjoyed. Lovingly owned and maintained. She is in need of nothing but a new owner to continue to pamper her.
Having spent almost 90% of her life in Alabama, this is a rust free car.
If you are looking for a classic TRI 5 Chevy or specifically a rare 56, don't miss out on this outstanding car. You
will not be disappointed.
