Sometimes in a family the middle child can get "lost" well not literally lost but he (or she) isn't the youngest hence no longer showered with all of the "newest" attention nor is he (or she) the oldest and begins to fall from the parental radar and hence begins to experience lots more freedom.

And that's the 1956 Chevy. In many ways the 1956 isn't given the recognition it should. It has many of the sought after styling cues of the '55 and gives us a hint of what was coming in 1957. It was the first of the Chevys with the hidden gas filler and the 265 had an oil filter and four horsepower ratings; a 162hp for manuals and a 170hp for the automatic, a 205hp and a 225hp rating. But let us not forget the venerable '56 gave us 104,849 two-door sedans; 269,798 four-door sedans; 41,268 convertible coupes; 128,382 hardtop coupe; 13,279 Beauville four-door wagon; 7,886 Nomad two-door wagons; and, 103,602 sport hardtop coupes.
Well, we've seen just about every color combination one could imagine, multiple build styles, and engine combinations that would stagger the imagination. Yep, the 1956 Chevy may be the middle brother in the Tri-Five family but it is still very popular.
