1956 Chevrolet Corvette

VIN: E565004016

In 1956 the Corvette finally became a serious sports car contender when Chevrolet dropped the anemic 6 cylinder and stepped up to a 265ci 210hp V8. That seemed like a lot of power at the time. Of course the folks at the St. Louis plant could never imagine what their creation might turn into these many years later. Enter C&F Race Cars in Ramsey, MN.

C&F took what was called a “creditable performer” back in the 50’s and, with a bit of American hot rod magic, turned it into an asphalt munching beast. Using the all-original 1956 Corvette fiberglass body, they nestled underneath a custom tubular frame to handle what can only be called a monster of an engine. Built by Wheeler Racing Engines of Blaine, MN. the 400 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 is rated at over 532hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.

1992 Corvette brakes, Eibach brakes springs, Koni shocks, and large anti-sway bars where added to the custom C&F chassis to make the car stop and turn as well as it accelerates.

Finishing off their creation is bodywork by Unique Auto Body in Blaine, MN. They hand-laid a custom fiberglass floor, fashioned a custom hood, and then shot the car with an a tremendous PPG aqua and white paint job.

The result of all of this work can only be described as astounding. So much so that Car Craft decided to feature the car.

This gorgeous American classic comes with all restoration documentation and service records.
