There are a lot of things I like about that car. It's probably a '56, it's a hardtop, it's chopped, it has a standard transmission, and it has 'I think' an FE. All good stuff. I don't care for the 'front rake' stance, and I never got to liking Packard taillights in other cars.
I bought a '56 Ford when I was 15, and when I was 17 I pulled the guts out of it and put them in a '59 Ford one weekend. These were my high-school cars. I still have both cars.

I too am a fan of the 55-56 Fords, dad had a 55 2 door hardtop with the Y block and dual exhaust. I also like the 54, and the 57 club coupe, The 57 Fairlane was also a whale...imho
