Nice gallery. This reminds me of one of the coolest 1:1 '56s I EVER saw. It was...
... a 4-door hardtop done 'street machine' style... lowered stance, after-market pieces, etc. B-U-T... the back doors were re-engineered to open 'suicide'-style.
It was so well done because the stock side trim was still in place that you really didn't notice the shaved door handles.
I just can't remember if I saw in on-line or in a magazine.
