1956 Chevy 2 Door Hard Top Belair

Ron and Cynthia's '56 displayed on the Member's Pride section of The Classic Chevy International car magazine. The following paragraphs were written and displayed under the image of their car:

"This 1956 Chevy Belair sport coupe was assembled in Oakland, CA in August 1955. It was purchased in SF by a young girl who kept it until 1995 when we were lucky enough to buy it.

It has a Powerglide and the original 265 engine with 179,000 miles on it. The purchase price in 1956 was $2,657.31 that included optional features and the unusual colors of Pinecrest and Sherwood Green.

In just over a year, it has been used on the set of a new Ron Howard film Inventing the Abbots, and has been in several local news articles. With the help of CCI, restoring the interior and rebuilding the engine are in our plans for the future. Until then, we enjoy cruisin’ the boulevard!"
