Here at Classic Industries, we love to see what customers can do with the restoration parts we offer. Sometimes, they simply put the finishing touches on project vehicles that are nearly complete—other times, they rebuild classic cars from the ground up using parts from our catalogs. Daniel Brito, of Montebello, California, falls into the second category. His stunning 1956 Bel Air started out as a $500 husk of its former glory, but he restored the car over the last 15 years, leaving it in the beautiful condition seen here.

Daniel, a retired engineer, is no stranger to restoration, already owning a similarly-restored 1955 Bel Air. That's a good thing, too, because this '56 was a major undertaking. It underwent a full frame-off restoration, and Daniel tells us it now features "almost 100% new parts". One look at the car, and you can see what he means—it really does look brand-new.

The parts Daniel put into this '56 are all top-shelf, and no expense was spared. The powertrain consists of a crate 350ci V8 from the Classic Industries catalog, mated to a 700R4 automatic transmission, and a 4.11 rear end with Positraction
