    Interesting '56 President Classic, there. It looks like the Engine's Serial Number (P30273) is being used as the VIN, not the car's original Serial Number.

    'Wonder if the Serial Number plate is still on the car and just being ignored? Perhaps it was originally registered using the Engine Number, but I would have thought that was pretty much over in all states by 1956. BP

        Probably very silently in the dead of night when Barry was sleeping.... BP

          It's a nice car. BUT, the ACV is listed at $55K plus and the BUY IT NOW is $19K. How much wishful thinking is this? Especially with no brakes...

              It LOOKS like a pretty solid example, but yeah - those prices are some sincerely wishful thinking.
