Wheels in the Grass

Two weeks in a row of Chevys on the half-shell. This 1956 Chevrolet 210 Handyman wagon was photographed a month or so ago in a Sanborn backyard. It gets tricky ID-ing these things when so much is missing. First off, it’s obviously a two-door, but not a Nomad. The shape of the holes where the taillights once resided would indicate a ’56 and not a ’55. Holes in the quarter panel where the trim goes are from a 210, and not the base 150, which wouldn’t have extended so far back. So there you have it. This is one of 22,038 Handymans (Handymen?) produced for 1956, with a base price of $2,215. Looks like there might still be some salvageable body parts there, but not a heck of a lot else.
