I am guessing that makes it a very unusual car.I have a factory RHD 1956 210 4 door hardtop - like Chevycrazy's mine was built in Tarrytown NY, came to England new in 1956 and has been here ever since, through numerous owners and colours.
Ja ... that's pretty common.Probably the worst area of rust is around the rear window - hence this -
Hi, amongst other areas of galloping rust, the window frame of the rear window is pretty close to gone altogether on one side, and gone completely on the other - I've searched on here but can't find any examples of people repairing this area - there is no repop sheet metal for this and I suspect...www.trifive.com
I wonder how many came to the UK like this? (They would have been part of a production run rather than being a one-off.)Fortunately I do have a note of the VIN - B56T135403 which makes it a 210 with the inline 6 made at Tarrytown.
Unfortunately I don't know the history in detail. The reason I know the car's been here all its life is the date of registration on the V5c (UK reggo document) and some history I was able to get from DVLA (our national reggo people) about previous owners. Also as you may know, cars here (UK) keep their first reg number for life (unless changed for a vanity type later) and the number is correct for a 1956 car registered in London.I wonder how many came to the UK like this?

All of the '56 4DHTs that came to Australia were Bel Air and V8 ... and shipped assembled, as opposed to the (more) regular CKDs.
