Nostalgia Lives in a ’56 Pontiac
Honoring childhood memories of his family car, the owner of this 1956 Pontiac Catalina came to us to help bring it back to life. To meet his request for true authenticity, we used only original and new old stock (NOS) parts, fabricating any pieces that were not available.
This car got the full treatment: a frame-off restoration complete to stock, including media blasting down to bare steel, a rarely rebuilt 316 V-8 engine and Jetaway/Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, a large assortment of new and re-chromed trim, hand-fabricated floors, and an interior hand-stitched from original factory stock material tracked down for the project. We finished out with a classy two-tone Terragon Green and cool white paint scheme.
Seldom seen in common restorations, this model’s a definite head-turner and is sure to make many reminisce when she cruises by.

Special thanks to Dee’s Trim and North Texas Quality Chrome.

Looking for price and equipment on the 56 Pontiac. I owned one in my younger days.
Bill, thank you for your interest in our work. Unfortunately, we do not have this car for sale; we perform full frame-off restorations for customer cars and not for resale on our part. However we do appreciate your inquiry and would be happy to work with you if you decide to pursue a project car in the future.
