Ever want to drive that perfect piece of classic Americana that's
instantly recognizable for being an icon and never leaves you
wanting for anything? This 1956 Chevrolet 210 custom build has the
legendary Tri-Five profile in a stunning slick black exterior,
comfortable A/C interior, and a modern fuel-injected heart.
We always love a Tri-Five Chevy, but then there are ones like this that really grab our attention and never let go. That's probably because there's less than 1,200 miles on this coupe since its restoration by Schwartz Performance of Woodstock, Il. The body looks great thanks to solid investments and that the two-door is more rigid than the hardtop. So everything fits well and the doors shut with confidence. It also makes for a great canvas to apply the sinisterly shiny black paint. But the brightwork is the true key to this coupe's iconic appearance, and that's why we're happy when it looks as good as this. From the bumpers to the delicate piece of trim along the window sills, it keeps all the jewelry sparkling that makes these cars winners with the public. And the full sweeping line gives this coupe a timeless sporty profile. Plus, as you look over the details, this one has some great custom pieces like the cleaner front trim, lowered stance, and 15-inch Billet Specialties alloys. They all clue you in on the upgrades beneath the skin.
One look inside and you're once again reminded of the large investment in this custom build. The 1011A on the cowl tag identifies this as a Del Ray model, and this pays tribute to that special interior with a custom gray tweed with square stitching. The side panels and headliner follow this tweed for quite a comfortable total package. And as you slip into the driver's seat, you'll notice the classic dual cowl dash houses great upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo and modern R134a air conditioning. And more than just looking great, this classic Chevy has a the right performance atmosphere. You feel it the moment you grab the Lokar shifter with your right hand and the Lecarra sports steering wheel with your left one. Beyond that is an upgraded set of Dakota gauges that give you a clear indication there's something special under the hood.
This engine bay has an award-worthy presentation as the painted black walls help draw attention to the ton of money invested in all the polished components. This brightness of this motor also helps instantly recognize the modern fuel-injected power that makes this such a cool restomod. In fact, since the Tri-Five Chevys launched that legendary small block V8, how cool is it to be able to showcase over a half-century of engineering evolution?! But this custom build more than just a great history lesson every time you pop the hood. The 4.8-liter LS V8 is a powerful motor that fires with modern ease. While the dual exhaust gives a nice growl, this one also has a sensible side. After all, with such a fresh build, it feels quite tight one the road. Plus, power steering, front disc brakes, and a thick front sway bar all give this an all-around terrific driving experience. And the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive means this classic is ready for the long haul.
Complete with build receipts, this is a fully restored icon that's in cut-above condition. So if you like to actually drive your classics, this is an opportunity you don't want to have pass you by. Call today!!!
