I have a 1956 Century convertible that is my daily driver. I'm starting this project thread to hopefully help people restoring similar cars. I have found that there is only a little information and parts availability for this year in particular. I have experimented with different engines, open drive swaps, steering and suspension. So to begin with, I purchased a 1956 Century convertible from the Los Angeles area. It had been in storage since the 80's and had not been on the road since at least the 70's. it was rough- rust, missing parts and in a thousand pieces when I bought it. I had it shipped up to Vancouver, WA where I did the work on it. I originally started with a LT1 / 4l60e out of a 1994 corvette. it ran fine, got decent mileage. I switched to open drive using chevy truck trailing arms and a 1961 lesabre differential. I left that in for about 1 year / 20,000 miles and have since switched to full jaguar suspension and a 2002 LS1. Here are some pictures to get started, I'll update this as I can.
