Hello fellow Corvette owners,
For quite some time I have been lurking in this group reading through the thousands of posts and flame wars.I write to you now in need of advice. I have aquired a more-or-less basket case 1956. It looks to be nearly 90% complete with an original engine block (no side mount bosses in the casting), and dual Carter WCFB carbs on the original manifold. It looks like it used to have a convertible top but came with a hard top. Someone installed a 4speed trans and what appear to be traction bars on the rear axle. I have moved all of the pieces into my garage but don't know where to start. Do I have to re-hang the doors before lifting the body off the frame? I have heard that the body may crack if I try lifting it with the doors removed. Any advice or comments will be welcomed. Thanks in advance, Homer hbrinlee-at-hotmail-dot-com
