Just finished this '56 Bel Air. This is the first time I've ever opened the doors and trunk on anything. I didn't know what to expect, but I learned a lot. The exterior color is Rustoleum purple and the finish is Future floor wax. The wheels are from the Testors Shezoom car.

For the power plant, I used the spare HEMI that came in the '68 Charger kit. As you can see, it fits nicely in the spacious engine bay. This finishes out the weekend by wrapping up two from 1956.

You can find the build thread on the work bench

Thanks for looking.

Great job on the body modifications. I saw the tread on your build and like how you did the hood and the lights.
