For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet 210 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

It's the quintessential hot rod - a 1955 Chevrolet 210 2-door post sedan. In fact, these are so highly prized by racers and customizers that it has become increasingly rare to see one in restored-to-original condition. But few automobiles can lay claim to more historical significance. 1955 was the first year for the small block Chevy, and this car has its original 265 including the optional oil filter. The recipient of a thorough restoration in 2018, the car has accumulated only about a thousand miles since. That's a good number -- just enough to see to it that things are in order. Things are indeed in order; from the lush original colors Gypsy Red and India Ivory paint to the correct OEM 210 trim to the full wheel covers; to those fabulous, instantly recognizable bumpers. This '55 is delightfully uncomplicated. Manual steering, drum brakes, 3-on-the-tree, crank windows, and AM Radio. It's anything but spartan, though. A Delray black and white interior with fresh carpeting and upholstery takes you right back to the '50's. And just to showcase the original condition of the car, the original door panels were retained. Highlighting the interior is the now famous 55 Chevy dash with clear gauges and shiny brightwork, replete with hundreds of little bowties. Even the best customizers could never improve on it. The pristine trunk contains the original spare wheel (with the proper silver stripe) and a Firestone Deluxe Champion tire. If you've read this far you know that the turning point this vehicle represents for Chevrolet cannot be overstated. It was the first of the "tri-five" Chevys. This 1955 Chevrolet 210 2-door post is a marvelous representative of a great time in automotive history, and indeed in US history. You'll love how this authentic classic drives. When you see it, you may be tempted to modify it. That's okay, there couldn't be a better foundation. Or you can simply own and enjoy a true historical artifact. This is a car truly deserving of the revered title "55 Chevy."
