This 1956 Chevrolet Handyman is a TV star that has its flame-kissed style by Chip Foose. So it's already irresistible before you check out the fuel-injected V8, custom interior, overdrive transmission, and everything else that makes this an awesome custom cruiser.
If you were a fan of comedian Christopher Titus' show in the 2000s, then you probably know this car. If you buy a DVD today or see press photos, you're likely to even see this Chevy. It was a focal point of the show, and it was a personal vehicle in real life for Titus. And because Chip Foose is a friend, it's not just this name on the 17-inch wheels. It's been noted that the flames on the tailfin and roof were laid out by Foose. Plus, we love a '56 for the wraparound bumpers, full-length side trim, and exclusive grille. It only gets more attractive on the 210 two-door wagon body. After all, it gives you the wraparound rear glass like a Nomad, and these are even rarer than a Bel Air drop-top. This one has the lowered stance, sleek style, bright red paint, and custom pinstriping make for a great street machine. And a street machine is exactly how you should view this. It has an unmistakable custom style with a build and a finfish that was meant for easy enjoyment out on the road.
Open the door, and you'll see more great signs of investment. The cream leather upholstery has the instant look of premium. We love how the seats are modern-style front buckets that give you a nice classic tuck and roll style insert. The rear seat and sides were also done to match. The exterior red returns on the carpeting, dash, piping, seatbelts, and even the steering wheel grip for a thoughtful level of coordination throughout this car. You have desirable great modern conveniences like an AM/FM/CD/XM touchscreen radio w/Bluetooth, an armrest center console, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And as a great driver's car, you have upgrades like the sports steering wheel on a tilt column, white-faced gauges, and a B&M shifter.
The engine bay has something special, too. You have a polished presentation of a 350 cubic-inch V8 that has upgrades like a cold air intake and ram-jet fuel injection. And because this is a true driver you have some good upgrades for everyday use. The aluminum radiator w/electric fan helps keep this one running cool even when you're in traffic. And the four-speed automatic transmission has highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, there's power steering, power brakes, and front discs. That makes this custom the perfect choice for driving near or far.
This is a star-car with rarity, power, and pedigree. So don't miss an awesome opportunity at a one-of-a-kind. Call today!!!
