1956 Chevrolet Handyman 2 Door Wagon Hot Wheels Car

This amazing one of a kind Chevy has quite a pedigree. She has won multiple regional awards, has a trunk load of trophies from cars shows around the Southland, been in too many magazines to list and is a Mequiars Wax sponsored car. However, her highest honor was having a Hot Wheels Red-Line car made from it! The PPG Red-Line Hot Wheels for this car are some of the rarest from the last 10 years (only 3,000 made) and often sell for $85 on-line. And that is just for starters…this car has had many of the right gearheads in Southern California build it. With just 6,491 miles on the odometer since the completion of this amazing build it is barely broken in.

Get invited by the Grand National Roadster show, Cruisin for a Cure, Good Guys, Danchuck Tri-5s and all of the local shows you have time for without having to try! Sure, you could trailer it there and insure that it is super clean when you get there, but this car is very streetable and most of the fun is in the getting there.
