Geeze, I'm a sucker for those older big tooshed cars!
The car is all original in that it's been kept all stock throughout, it has been repainted however but it has single stage enamel. In my opinion, nothing buffs up to a high gloss like single stage enamel paint, it's the real deal.
Earl has become a very good friend of mine since I've moved to Stuart and not only does he have very good taste in cars he's also a genuinely nice guy and he told me I can borrow the 56 Pontiac anytime I want it... take my word for it... I'm going to take him up on his offer...

Good observation... one thing about old technology is that with a few simple tools and a little know-how you can take these cars apart and work on them yourself, even the knobs or levers. There's usually a trick to taking apart a switch that uses a pull-knob, you have to know how to remove the knob in order to remove the switch.
I recently had to remove a pull switch from a classic car and after inspecting it as closely as I could while it was still in the dash I found a spring-loaded button on the very rear of the switch, pushed it in and the knob pulled right out...
I love the classics and this one is exceptional...
