Any Tri-Five Chevy is a cool car, but some are shining stars
amongst the standouts. This 1955 Chevrolet 210 post coupe is in
that rarefied category with a cool two-tone exterior, custom A/C
interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and an enhanced small block V8.
So, there was money invested in keeping this looking like a classic
and adding the right upgrades... and all of it was very well
You can instantly see a lot of investment and careful thought went into a restoration like this. There's a premium charm that radiates from a quality coupe that utilizes the bright trim to create a clear dividing line for the two-tone. Plus, the shine coming off of this green and white two tone gives the iconic body an appeal like sweet mint candy. Of course, you could never get this kind of luster in '55, and so what is grabbing your attention now is a full professional respray that takes advantage of modern clearcoat. But it takes more than just great paint to be a cut-above classic. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors, and the panels line up so that the side trim continues uninterrupted. But the longer you look at this one, the more you realize it's much more than just a great-looking vintage coupe. It has aggressive touches like the large dual exhaust tips and large American Racing Torq Thrust wheels that are staggered 18/20-inches front/rear on the lowered suspension for added intimidation.
The moment you open the door, you begin to understand the level of investment in the restoration. The cloth seats have the look of a '50s time capsule, but they are a newer quality installation that offers sofa-like comfort to you and up to five passengers. All the bright and stylistic pieces that make these Chevys an icon are still in place. This includes the fan-style gauge cluster, factory steering wheel, and dual-cowl style dash that resembles the Corvettes of the era. This one is so authentic, you'll even be showing off the stand-up spare and mat in the trunk. But this one was restored for more than just impressing others in the parking lot. It's a true all-day cruiser with comfortable modern R134a air conditioning.
More of this driving attitude is seen under the hood. You're first impression of the 307 cubic-inch small block V8 is that it's a great powerplant to show off. After all, all the bright components like the air topper, valve covers, master cylinder, and much more give it an attention-grabbing presence. But dig a little deeper, and you'll discover plenty of substance within this Chevy's style. For example, the electric pusher fan helps to keep the motor cool even in traffic, and the Holley four-barrel carburetor gives the V8 the extra wallop of power. As you look through the undercarriage photos, you'll see a terrific mix of original-style red oxide paint with the unmistakable shine of newer components like the gas tank and glasspack style dual exhaust. There you're also going to spot one of your favorite driving upgrades - the four-wheel disc brakes. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and the grip of modern low-profile tires, and you've got a classic '55 that's easy to cruise anywhere.
A shining presentation on the outside, A/C comfort on the inside, and the right driving upgrades - the perfect '55 Chevy is available right now. And it can all be yours if you're quick enough to grab this deal.Call now!
