Why do people let a rebuildable car deteriorate to this point.  They ought to be shot! Pigs.

One of the best looking mid-50s cars, IMO ...it  has that still
sort of conservative (before the Mopar 57s) but Real American Power
look, along with the '56 Packard, Buick and Chrysler... I'd take any of
them!  Good luck on your project - great color combo!!

I have the original big factory Parts Book if you need a part # looked up!

There's a 'bird in the 'port next to the 'Dome.

Oh sorry, it's a 'Flite... the fancy pants model.

Take that cover off behind the back seat and hope the trunk isn't loaded with crap.
 
Put a bunch of 3/8 extensions together and reach through to the latch and take the bolts out.
 
If that's Eddie, he looks like Leaburn

I prefer the 66's, but you are right for that era.

I do love that body style. Good luck with the restoration. It looks like a car with a lot of upside. Here's my 55 Windsor.
