I have had this car for almost 20 years. The Paint is about 15 years old and the body was fairly rust free prior to paint.There was a couple small patches done that I know of. The passenger floor board had small section replaced, the drivers rear quarter had a small piece replace behind the wheel. The paint shows well and I haven't seen any signs of rust in the last 15 years. The car was my daily driver at time, so the paint is not perfect. It has some light scuffs and scratches from daily usage. It's far from embarrassingto take to shows but it's no show winning trailer queen.The LS is a newest addition, a few years back. It runs and drives great with the LS and feels much more sure footed in the corners than my 500 cubic inch motor. It cruises about 2,000 RPMs at 70 mph and get a bit under 19 mpg on the flat, if you keep your foot out of it.It does have updated polyurethane bushings but stillhave a few squeaksand rattles. Although most of the suspension was gone throughyears back, it has been driven 10 plus thousand miles a year, prior to the LS install. It's great running and looking car. It just not a perfect frame off 100 plus thousand dollar build. Although I probably have more than 100k into it, in the last 20 years I've owned it.
Why am I selling it after 20 years you may ask. I have a 1967 Nova with an LS3 also, which took the daily driver slot. Once that happened, the 56' ended up sitting a lot. I thought taking my 500 cubic incher out of the 56' and dropping the LS3 in would get me driving it more. The theory was good but there's only one of me and with a work truck and the other 2 car, it hasn't been happening. Since the LS transplant I only get 1,200-1,500 miles a year on it. I don't need to sell it for monetary reasons, so I'm okay using it the way I've been, if it doesn't sell. I probably have well over 100k into over it's life time of motor and performance changes but that's mostly written off to entertainment and the passion of the hobby.
I added a couple more photos. I had forgot that there was a hole in the carpet and small patch where the shop had removed the old pedal and installed the drive by wire set up. Also a pic of the trunk. Yes I did use it as a trunk so it's far from pristine. The stretched wheel tubs are barely noticeableto the average guy walking up. The spare tire well was removed and replaced with a floor board section out of another 56 Chevy, so it looks good as well. I screwed the trunk carpet down because everything I put in the bunched it up anyway.
The car is for sale locally as well, so I will end the auction if it sells prior to the end of the auction.

For Potential buyers I would recommend looking at it 1st, or having a paid or third party friend look at it for you. I'm available to show it until the auction ends. I'm not trying to hide anything, but it is a major purchase. I typically do that myself. I've flown out, driven out and also used 3rd parties from the areas the vehicles were in. I want whoever gets it to be as happy I am with it.
