It\'s hard not to get excited about a true classic icon that also has been updated for rumbling V8 power, an overdrive transmission, A/C interior, and more. Plus, this 1955 Chevrolet 210 is a build with less than 350 miles on it since completing restoration. So this is history and usability mixed expertly into on fresh package.
This car has a nice look of upgrades all-around. It starts with the upgrade to Bel Air trim. It\'s a wise move that allows the upgraded red and white two-tone paint to have even more brightwork to provide a well-defined separating line along the body. There are plenty more upgrades in the details including the clear headlights, the polished American Racing wheels, and the dual exhaust tips done with Chevy bow ties. It\'s all about making a striking first impression. Of course it\'s easier to be memorable in a \'55 Chevy tan many others because this is the car that launched the iconic Tri-Five era. Everything from the jet-inspired hood ornament, to the wide chrome bumpers are all part of the vintage package that the rest of us can\'t help but gravitate towards at the car shows.
Red interiors always look exceptionally bold, but on a fresh one like this, it\'s also exceptionally comfy. The seats, carpeting, door panels, trunk, and headliner all have the feel of a solid investment during the restoration. There\'s quality right down to the detail, like the fresh weatherstripping. We love the 1955\'s dash because it has plenty of bright trim and a dual cowl design that reminds us of the Corvette. But as you look closer, you\'re also going to like this one for all its features. The radio has a vintage look, but it\'s really a modern AM/FM digital tuner. The climate controls give you cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Even the clock works in this very detailed build. This was also upgraded for a better driving experience. The classic-style steering wheel has a smaller diameter, and it\'s mounted on a tilt column. And while the factory-style gauges are crisp and clear, you also have an auxiliary readout package to keep you fully informed about what\'s going on in the engine bay.
The detail-oriented build continues under the hood. You\'ve got a big investment in polished components. Plus, not only is the block red, but also so are the details in places like the valve covers and air topper. It makes for a uniform custom quality that could win awards all on its own. When you look beyond the style, you\'ll see the substance of a 350 cubic-inch V8. It\'s upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock EPS aluminum intake, MSD ignition system, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. It\'s a powerful package, but it\'s also built to run smooth. In fact, there are nice upgrades to make this a good anytime driver. That\'s why you have the upgraded radiator w/electric fan to help keep this running cool, and the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission has highway-friendly overdrive. Add in power steering, power brakes with front discs, and modern tires, and this is a classic that\'s built to enjoy near or far.
This is the iconic Chevy 210 that\'s ideal for everything from local cruise-ins to taking on the Power Tour. So if you want a classic that can do it all in style and comfort, call today!
