Charles what is the finished exterior color code and roof going to be on the 56?

I'll post a shot of the ID plate, But the roof is Fiesta Red, as is the interior, the body will be shot in a Polize White, which I understand was a special order color, kind of a French cream white. Our 58 Squarebird is Polize White.

Charles very elegant 58 convert and I see that has AC as well. My wife's 58 HT is Colonial White and has the same stance as yours with the original drum brakes. She drives it all over the place with her girlfriends and gets lots of looks.
The 56 should look stunning in that color combo and look forward to more pixs as you progress.

If you go with the Unisteer brand steering rack system you end up making a whole lot of changes to the steering column to make it fit and work for your 55-57 bird, and the hardest part is retaining the telescopic feature. Here's our new in shop built shaft. Just not a Baby Bird with out this feature.
I'll do a build up on the whole column when the parts come back from the chrome shop.

Looking forward to your upcomming build and pictures! My 57 is modified and that would be a good addition.

Couldn't stand looking at all the extra brackets on the A/C compressor so I cut them off, now it's a Y-Block Compressor.
And started working on the steering column again.
