Vehicle Overview

 
In 1956 only 3,467 Corvettes were produced, making it the third lowest production total in the history of the famed sports car.  This striking convertible looks fantastic being one of only 532 1956 Corvettes built in elegant Polo White and is complimented by the sharp red interior in like-new condition.  Power is compliments of the 265 cubic-inch V8 topped with dual four-barrel carburetors producing a stout 225 horsepower and transferred to the pavement via the 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission.  A unique option on this Corvette is the electronically controlled convertible top.  Unlike the 1953-1955 Corvette roadsters, which had an optional top that could be attached to the car, this convertible top was an integral part of the design, allowing the 1956 Corvette to be identified as a true convertible.  An extensive frame-off restoration was done at some point and completed to the highest standards of Corvette restoration, using mostly original and new-old-stock parts.  The paint on this car is in great condition as well as all the chrome, stainless moldings and glass.  The chassis, suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems have all passed an intensive and thorough inspection by one of our trained restoration specialists, so you can have peace of mind driving and enjoying this amazing car.  Included with the purchase of this Hendrick Performance vehicle, is the rare opportunity for you and up to three of your friends to tour and take delivery inside the breath-taking Hendrick Heritage Center.  Stepping inside this private museum, that very few have had the privilege to experience, will take you back in time to when American muscle cars ruled the street, and show you the story of Rick Hendrick's heritage and his amazing collection of rare and high-performance cars.  This exceptional Corvette is ready to take you on a trip back in time, or to your next weekend getaway!
