We have for sale a clean daily driver 210 wagon with a nice straight body with Belair trim and very good driver quality paint. This wagon was completely restored about 10 years ago and has been well cared for ever since. The exterior has very nice turquoise and white paint, all the chrome is nice a bright and the windows have no chips or cracks. When you open the door and see the interior you will notice it is just as nice inside as it is out. The tuxedo black and white interior is completed with a custom center console which houses the CD/DVD player and remotes and a subwoofer in the storage space under the rear cargo area. The dashboard is NOT cut. VDO digital gauges are set behind a billet steering wheel and adjustable steering column. The gauges have 1/4 mile time and 0-60 display features!
Pop the hood and you will find a warmed-over 350ci chevy backed by a TH350 automatic and stock rear end. A custom dual exhaust system gives them a nice tone. The engine starts right up and runs smoothly. The transmission shifts into gear with a B&M shifter with reverse lockout. It has a thicker aftermarket radiator to keep things cool in traffic. HEI digital ignition keeps everything running smoothly. It has front disk brakes and rear drums with a dual reservoir master cylinder and power booster. The tires are in good shape with plenty of tread, suspension has been slightly lowered. The car also has aftermarket air conditioning.
All headlights, running lights, interior lights, and brake lights work. The rear driver’s side brake light also conceals the factory fuel filler cap. It has manual crank windows which all go up and down smoothly, the corner vent windows also function as they should. The latches and locks also work on all doors and rear hatch. Electric wipers are the only power option.
Wil has been enjoying this clean wagon with his family as a daily driver for the past few months. It has proved to be reliable and stylish transportation.
BONUS UPDATE: We have recently installed a passenger-side mirror and new chrome hood bar trim! Check out the pictures added below!
At the time that this car is actually sold, it will have some more miles on it than listed because I have been using this really cool 1956 Wagon as a daily driver in Los Angeles.
I have really had a lot of fun with it. Putting the kids in it and dropping them off to school, to taking my friends surfing in it. We have had lots of fun.
Our shop Sakowski Motors took this wagon someone else put together a number of years ago and did a 532 Point Mechanical Inspection. We fixed all kinds of little things to make the Classic Car go from the typical classic that you pull out on the weekend and hope it runs, to a classic that I trade off to my wife and kids for them to commute in. As well as tighten up lots of cosmetics. Now we are ready to pass it to its next caretaker, much more ready for fun now.
Even driving it down the LA Freeways to Downtown a bunch of times, and regularly on the 405 Freeway. It is really nice when you are cruising with traffic at 80mph on The 405 and when traffic comes to a regular standstill and you have to go from 80mph to 0mph quickly, the power disc brakes bring the 56 Wagon to an easy stop without pulling left or right. Crucial upgrade around here. She really cruises the highway nicely, and is really fun just driving and around town. A really fun way to get to and from work every day. Nice and quiet cruising, or a fun growl if you floor it off the stoplight with a great chirp when it hits second gear under full throttle. Sure helps the grind.
With all of the power updates, it steers, stops, and accelerates so nicely that it does not wear you out like lots of old cars.
Even though I have been using it as a daily driver, it stays in the garage at home, and when I get to the shop; I pull it directly into the warehouse to keep it out of the sun and weather.
Luckily, it has stayed dry and I have not had the need to use the upgraded electric windshield wipers that work so good compared to the original vacuum ones.
