1956 Chevrolet Handyman Wagon

Illustration for article titled 1956 Chevrolet Handyman Wagon

Lots of wagons among this years Great 8, here's another and this one wearing a bowtie and a lot of orange. The fairly rare '56 Chevy Handyman Wagon has undergone extensive modifications, and it shows. The bodywork amounts to over 100 modifications nad 1300 handmade parts, that's love. Under that custom engine cover is a LS1 V8 and a 4L60E transaxle. The interior is completely one off with hand formed dash and leather bits where it counts. This is a very nicely done rod, even if a bit over-done for our tastes. Kudos to the builders at Rods and Restos for a job well done.

These cars remind me of those tiny bathing suit-wearing muscle men; they look amazing, but can't actually do anything due to being so muscle-bound.
