Barn Find 1956 Ford

So i just found this thing in Oregon. I bought it from the original owner. It has been in Oregon its entire life and still has the 56 year plate. It was preserved by staying in storage and driven often. It really has next to zero rust. It has a running straight 6 and has a very cool look. Even the phone number has no area code. It's old. Has the original seat covering and it is in reasonably good shape. This one will be an easier flip since it runs well. Once we knock the ugly off, I will post some completed photos.

Wow, simply wow.! Another original 56. Can't wait to see how you clean it up!

Did the other 56 sell?

Looks like it had a grille guard on it at one time as the supports are still there.

I like it just the way it is. Don't see anything that needs improving for it to suit me. Nice find.
