Wow, what a looker! Killer colors and it is fully decked out with accessories. Older body off frame restoration that still looks great. It features an automatic trans, power steering and brakes which makes easy peasy to drive.

EXTERIOR: The body is straight, no rust or damage. According to the tag it is an original Raven Black car, it is like looking into a mirror. Loaded with accessories that really make it stand apart from the others. Up front it has the \"cattle guard\". On each side it has a spotlight, stone shields, rocker molding, fender skirts and door handle guards. In back is a \"cattle guard\", Continental kit with matching hubcap and dual exhaust coming through the bumper. All the chrome and trim is shiny and straight. On top is a power convertible upgraded with black cloth. On the ground is a set of radial white walls with optional wire basket hubcaps.

INTERIOR: Awesome looking Red-White interior against the black paint. Reproduction upholstery and door panels. Red carpet and embroidered mats on the floor. Seatbelts in front. The metal trim is repainted smooth glossy red. The dash area is very clean looking. It has quartz movement in the clock, optional Town and Country radio and an owner\'s manual in the glovebox.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Clean looking, stock engine compartment. It has a Teapot 4 barrel carb with correct choke tube, Thunderbird Special valve covers and oil bath air cleaner. It features power steering and brakes. 1956 was the first year for the 12 volt system. It\'s all painted up neatly.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The continental kit swings out of the way to open the trunk. Under the trunk lid and the jamb are painted nicely. The weatherstrip, trunk mat and well liner are in excellent shape. It has a white wall spare on a painted rim with the jack assembly.

UNDERSIDE: It looks like it was an older frame off restoration. The floors, rockers and braces are amazingly rust free clean metal painted semigloss black. The steering and suspension look to be in good shape, upgraded with air shocks in back. It has a polished stainless dual exhaust system. The fuel tank and straps have been replaced. Factory drum brakes at all four wheels, the e-brake is hooked up. Looking up at the motor it is clean. The Cruise-o-Matic transmission also looks clean.

SERVICE: We inspected the car and gave it an oil change, tuned the carb, and set the timing. We fixed the wipers, replaced the brake light switch, repaired the spotlights, replaced the door lock cylinders, bled the power top system, lubed, and adjusted the hood latch, bled the brakes.

There are other Sunliners out there, they are not this one! The colors, accessories and condition make this the one to have.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car\'s condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
