1956 Body Off

Unless you have serious rust issues there is no need to brace the door openings on a ’56 2-door hardtop. I pulled the body off my ’56 last week with the doors still on. Even hanging on the rotisserie the door gaps didn’t change a bit and both doors still open and close perfect. I was amazed how rigid these bodies are.

This started out as a simple engine and transmission rebuild. :rolleyes:

If you don't have a single rusted brace, pan or bolt you can do that w/o bracing Farm Boy :>
