Here's something you don't see every day. You get two extra 56 Chryslers for parts, and a factory AC system. Two hemi's in the package. Check out those windows on the roof!

Look at the lever and gauge behind the steering wheel! Is that some sort of shifter?

What a beast!

That's the fugly-stick

I suspect that it has something to do with the brakes, perhaps due to the odd booster. Could be an improved parking brake, or a hand operated brake.

True but I think I see Imperial wheels, i.e. running gear, which would make sense (to me).

I was wondering about that too. I was thinking some kind of air brake (like a bus) (??)

Amazingly, the delicate horn ring seems intact even though the steering wheel seen better days

Someone should buy these and create a classic limo business. I bet you could get a good premium from people to chauffeur them around in one of these classics.

On second (third/fourth) look, that lever might connect to that bend metal mechanism in the footwell in which gas it would be like a school bus door opener (maybe):

that would take a few years of your life to restore

And the people would go "cool chevy limo man"...

youd also have to paint it white or black.

All true, but better than letting it rot.

Definitely! Classic car rentals for special occasions are actually pretty popular. Weddings and prom nights especially. You'd probably want to modernize the interior though to make it more like a modern limo than an airport bus. Add a fridge, a nice stereo, tinted windows, and re-arrange the seating and you'd have a pretty sweet looking limo. 

A google search brought up this place that rents out only 59 Caddy's. Definitely a market for this stuff!

The average dope renting a limo would pass over the old Chrysler in favor of a Hummer limo or something more modern.

I agree, those roof windows are awesome. As for the lever on the column, notice the pressure gauge that is attached, and the hoses. It seems to be a brake or? Maybe it was a device that opened all the doors at once lol.
