Sweeping lines, rarity, and a great woody-like appearance makes this 1954 Chevrolet 210 tin woody station wagon instantly desirable... and that\'s even before you check out the upgrades like the strong V8, updated suspension, overdrive transmission, and A/C interior.
We know you likely have never seen something like this before, because not only is it an exceptionally cool custom build, but also it starts with a rare edition. A 210 wagon like this costed about as much when new as a Bel Air convertible, and so there were far less of them sold than their sedan counterparts. So you can just imagine how few have survived around 65+ years (especially as solid and straight as this one.) But more than a survivor, this car has received a restoration that took the straight bodywork and invested in a glossy light green and cream two-tone. And that wood trim that\'s grabbing all your attention, it\'s painted on. Yes, it looks so real in the pictures and in-person, so it took a true artist\'s hand to apply. But what makes it so great is that the care and maintenance is as easy as the rest of the sheetmetal. On a rare wagon like this, the brightwork is just as important. The grille, wraparound bumpers, full-length trim, jet-inspired hood ornament, and more all come together to deliver a terrific vintage look. Plus, those American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add to the shine while showing off some if this unique wagon\'s added performance.
Inside is plenty of modern luxury mixed into the classic elegance. There\'s distinctive wood on the door panels and tailgate, and this mixes nicely with the tan headliner and tan seating. Plus, the southwest-style cloth insets on both rows of soft benches make this particularly inviting. The rear seat folds forward to give extra cargo space in one of the most practical classics around, and the wicker basket in the rear is another reminder that a wagon is great for everything, including picnics. They built this one with the driver in mind. There\'s a sporty banjo-style wood-rimmed steering wheel on a tilt column, Summit auxiliary readouts, and a well-integrated Dakota Digital dash. But the upgrade you\'re going to love the most is the modern R134a air conditioning that was installed in 2019. It means this classic wagon can carry your family and friends in true comfort.
The engine bay has been updated to accommodate the iconic Chevy 350 small block. It\'s a shining star with its bright presentation within the color-matched engine bay. The V8 not only looks great, but it\'s also been upgraded with the right performance pieces, including a Comp Cams camshaft, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. Plus, you have all the right supporting components, like the billet Tru-Trac serpentine belt system, electric fuel pump, and an aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. The Mustang II independent front suspension, power brakes w/discs up front, and wide BF Goodrich T/A tires with nice tread all deliver a solid driving experience. There\'s also a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, so that this one can cruise easily even on the highway.
Complete with build receipts, this is an exceptionally cool cruiser that\'s perfect for everything from a surf wagon, to your classic that fits the whole family. You already know how rare this is, so hurry up and call today before this opportunity is gone! Call today!!!
