Description
 
If youve admired cars like this 1956 Chevrolet 210 2-door at shows, youre not alone. Perennially the most popular cars in America, the Tri-Five Chevys represent fast fun at an affordable price, and this handsome two-tone coupe is no exception. The price on this one is quite reasonable, and for that money you get a handsome 2-door Bel Air that looks like a period hot rod and offers plenty of performance. The two-tone paint job is fairly close to one that was offered in 1956 and certainly has the right look to be straight out of the 1950s. All the underlying steel is in good shape, and while the paint is older and has a few touch-ups here and there, it still gets a lot of thumbs-up gestures out on the road and is a refreshing change from the usual red and white. The 210 has a slightly different trim pattern than the Bel Air, with the two-tone split residing entirely on the quarters instead of stretching all the way forward inside a loop of stainless. For many, the cleaner look of this 210 is part of the 1956 Chevys appeal, and while theres still a lot of stainless brightwork, it doesnt seem like its trying too hard to look stylish. Of course, the shiny stuff that is here is in great shape and looks fantastic against the subtle paint. The custom-stitched vinyl interior is a slight twist on the original. The factory seats are still there and are covered with vintage-looking seat covers with attractive matching door panels. Dark carpets give it a very upscale look that suggests someone with some taste designed the interior. The dash and steering wheel are painted to match the copper bodywork, and it all works together to present a clean interior that feels very OEM. The factory instrument panel with its big central speedometer is augmented by a trio of auxiliary gauges very neatly integrated into the bright strip of trim along the center of the dash. An AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit is a welcome addition to a car that might only have had an AM radio when it was new, and youll note that the speakers are cleverly integrated into the kick panels and rear package shelf for a clean look. The trunk is finished to stock specs, including a rubber mat, and has enough room for a weeks worth of luggage for the whole family. A 1969-vintage 350 cubic inch V8 was rebuilt and dropped between the fenders. With an upgraded Comp Cams camshaft, 1.6 roller rockers, and a 4-barrel carburetor, theres power everywhere on the dial and it idles like a performance car should. Chevy Orange paint adds some flash against the satin black engine bay, as do the Mickey Thompson valve covers. A big aluminum radiator up front keeps things cool and power front disc brakes were added for safety-theres enough whoa! to match the go! A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission powers a 10-bolt rear end, which carries 3.73 gears on an Auburn limited slip. A recent dual exhaust system gives the small block a great voice and classic gray Torque Thrust wheels with staggered 225/70/15 front and 235/70/15 rear General radials offer a traditional stance. Fun on a budget was the 210s calling card in 1956 just as it is today. If youve been at the shows wondering how to get in on the action, heres your answer. Call today!
