Home WHAT IS OBD? OBD PRODUCTS Auto Services MY '56 CHEV THE SHOP JOURNAL

I thought some of you might be interested in my own classic old car. It's a fully restored 1956 Chevy Bel Air (not stock). I bought this car (long before OBD was around) when I was in high school and I have been working on it ever since (30 years). Many people ask - sorry, this car is not for sale.

I take it out for a ride now and again in the summer, but most of the year it stays in its own heated, humidity controlled garage environment. It doesn't support our OBD automotive diagnostics system because there was no such thing circa 1956.

I have also been known to take it to the racetrack now and again, just to clear the carbon deposits out of the cylinders and ensure that it still puts out 400 hp across a broad power curve.

Some of the key features:

400hp. small block
automatic transmission
narrowed 12 bolt differential
$8k multi-coat hand rubbed lacquer paint job
No OBD (On Board Diagnostics) dataport

No OBD (On Board Diagnostics) here, but my 56 Chev Bel Air is still a great car ...
