For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet 210 in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The automotive scene can be a fickle place. Trends come, go, fizzle and sometimes even cycle back under the guise of "retro". While many builders strive to create cars that offer the flavor of the day, others use calculated observations to transform premier classics into timeless customs. This hot-rodded 210 features plenty of modern must-haves, like air conditioning, supple upholstery and chromed Coys wheels. But items like a spry LS2 and a smooth 4-speed automatic transmission certainly underscore the fact that the car marches to its own beat. Looking for a razor-sharp custom that's ready to attract big crowds and big trophies? Here it is!

APPROACHABLE OPULENCE

Built to turn heads while conquering the road, this sweet Chevy is the beneficiary of a nut-and-bolt, rotisserie restoration that wraps original sheetmetal in rich PPG 2-stage. At the front of those timeless aesthetics, a broad bumper centers two guards on a stainless grille, clear parking lamps and stainless-trimmed headlights. At the top of that grille, a Chevrolet-branded hood props a requisite Jetbird in front of a stainless-trimmed post greenhouse that's cleared by polished wipers. At the base of that restoration-fresh glass, a Chevrolet-branded profile seats small mirrors in front of traditional door handles and ornate speed spears that are mostly original. And at the back of the car, a second broad bumper centers two more guards on a Chevrolet-branded trunk and monochromatic tail lamps.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE

Toss the hood and you'll find a hot LS2 small block that looks ALMOST as good as it runs! At the front of that mill, a polished Street & Performance air filter funnels wind in to a composite intake by way of a factory throttle body. Under that "LS2" branded box, a polished serpentine drive spins modern power steering amid a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. At the sides of those ancillaries, pliable Taylor plug wires split coated headers and lovingly massaged fuel rail covers. In front of those covers, a glossy core support hangs a polished Griffin radiator between a polished expansion tank and a big electric puller fan. Details like bright hoses and polished brake components ensure first-class presentation. And all that glitz is framed in glossy PPG 2-stage, which coats smooth fenders and a crisp firewall.

ARTFUL CRUISING

Under the car, 1950s-era bones have been fully restored and fitted with a thick rear sway bar. At the center of that clean skeleton, a trusty 700R4 4-speed twists an 8.2-inch Drop Out axle that cages big, 3.73 gears inside an open differential. This Chevy points thanks to modern power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops come courtesy of four power-assisted calipers, which squeeze a quartet of vented rotors. Spent gases float from the aforementioned headers in to aluminized pipes and throaty Flowmaster mufflers. Everything rolls on cool Coys wheels, which spin 215/55ZR17 Nexen N7000s in front of 235/55ZR17 Nexen N7000s. And the car's solid floors are dotted with first-rate details like stainless fluid lines and a stainless gas tank.

CHOICE CUSTOMIZATION

Open this Chevy's doors and you'll find a custom cockpit that mixes supple red leather with the best conveniences of a modern commuter. Front and center, a gorgeous dash seats polished billet trim around glowing Dakota Digital VHX telemetry and cool Vintage Air conditioning. Speaking of seating, the car's passengers ride a duo of broad benches that, together, employ a total of seven cow hides. Sculpted side panels frame stylish billet handles. Tunes are kept steady thanks to a hidden Kenwood head unit. And in front of the driver, a polished, tilting column spins a polished and leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Owning a lights-out classic is cool. Owning a lights-out classic that's been professionally customized is something few are lucky enough to experience. Don't miss your chance to experience this incredible Chevy sedan!
