’56 Chevrolet Convertible
Milestone Paint & Body is celebrating 20 years in business and this ’56 Chevy will showcase that immense amount of accumulated skill in one project. Starting with a stout Art Morrison chassis, the ’56 will sport an LT4 backed by an 8L90E transmission. Wilwood brakes will stop the custom-coated Forgeline wheels with plenty of force. Other updates will include a Rick’s stainless fuel tank, Vintage Air, and Dakota Digital gauges. A custom interior by Speed & Design wrap up the build.
The big aesthetic changes on this project are all about stance, paint, and trim colors. Most trim elements on the body will be done up in a satin gold treatment, including the wheel centers and bumpers. A few elements will be gloss black to balance the intensity of the gold. Combine all of that with a gloss black body and the result should be pretty stunning.
