Any Tri-Five Chevy is a cool car, but some are shining stars amongst the standouts. This 1956 Chevrolet 210 Post coupe is in that rarefied category that has been restored with a radiant two-tone exterior, special interior (with added comforts like A/C,) and a powerful V8 heart.
The shoebox Chevys are icons, and this one proudly wears blue and white two-tone that you love from this era. Of course, you could never get this kind of luster and shine in \'56. So what is grabbing your attention is a huge pearlescent glow that radiates in any light. It\'s a bright beacon announcing this is something special. And we have thousands $$$$$ in receipts documenting investments over multiple years for this Chevy. That\'s also what the all-important brightwork shines like its new. Those wraparound chrome bumpers, jet-inspired hood ornament, window trim, polished wheel, and the 1956\'s unique grille all have the kind of shine that will fill you with pride. And we especially love the 210\'s sweeping side trim that shows off the straightness of the panels while providing a distinct separation point for the two colors.
Inside the blue and white theme continues. You\'ll especially love showing off the upgraded white seats because it has the cool tuck and roll texture that\'s perfect for a upgraded Tri-Five. And the side panels are even done to match. All the details are nice, right down to the new handles and the trim on the dual cowl dash. It\'s the kind of classic you\'ll want to share with family and friends. And you can keep them all happy with upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner featuring Bluetooth, and there\'s air conditioning blowing cold with modern R134a. And this classic is built with the driver in mind with a Hurst ProMatic shifter, AutoMeter auxiliary gauges, wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column.
The Tri-Five Chevys were the dawn of the small block, but they were never given anything as powerful as this. It starts with a larger 350 cubic-inch V8. The consignor states it was rebuilt in 2005 and only about 3,200 miles since then. It has had performance components added such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, and Hooker long tube headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. But more than just performance, this one was built to handle everyday driving with features like an MSD ignition, upgraded pulleys, and a big Griffin aluminum radiator w/ dual electric fans. This is purposely done because this impressive-looking Chevy was built to easily be a nice cruiser with features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.
This radiant \'56 Chevy is the classic you would build if you had the time. But instead you get to skip right to the fun part, and this cool coupe can have you cruising this weekend... but only if you call today!
