1957 Chevrolet 210 Station Wagon
Chevrolet marketed its mid-priced line as the "210" series from
1953 to 1957. The '57 210 shared bright body-side trim with the
top-of-the-line Bel Air but lacked its gold-tone accents and ribbed
aluminum body-side 'wedges.' All 1957 210s were closed models; 1953
was only year for a 210 convertible. However, Chevrolet's sporty
two- and four-door hardtop styles were offered as 210 models.
A restored 210 Chevrolet Wagon, with a few areas of paint bubbling,
but decent brite work and chrome, and factory matching interior
redux. This particular model was very popular however not many are
seen still kicking around. There are plenty of Nomads around but
few 210's in wagon form.
Matador Red leads off in the lower portion of the car, and India
Ivory covers the roof and the side wedges. Some bubbling within the
lower panels of the red are noted. Typical of the 210, no gold ribs
are in the wedges, just a cool 50's style Chevrolet badge. Two
rockets jet out from the front of the hood, and just below is the
iconic tri five grille, which presents in fair to good condition.
The rear chrome topped fin covers are nicely preserved, and on the
driver's side is the secret gas filler hinged trim piece. This long
car has been fitted with wire wheels and thin white sidewalls and
complete this typical American family of 4 plus cruiser.
Swing open one of the 4 large doors, and we can see restored door
panels in charcoal and ivory vinyl with very clean and pristine
handles and cranks. A full bench seat in front, and it has been
recovered in the correct pattern 2 tone Charcoal and Ivory as well.
Seat belts have been added and appears as the carpet has been
replaced as it shows clean and stain and fade free. Upfront the
dash and steering column has been sprayed with a texture paint
gray. Gauges and all shapes are original configuration, and the
radio and ashtray are missing. An original Two Ten logo steering
wheel shows some wear and sports a circular inner horn ring.
Another nice rear bench is seen in back, and the cargo area has
Inside the engine bay which has seen a respray to match the
exterior, we are met with an inline 6-cylinder engine which has a
235ci displacement. It appears with some patina but overall nicely
showing. It is topped with a single 2-barrel carburetor and backed
by a 3-speed manual transmission that is actuated by a tree
shifter... (AKA 3 on the tree)
Some new floorpans have replaced the originals, and the frame is
solid and rust free. Body hangers, and rockers are in good
condition as well. Throughout this car are areas where the
weather-stripping has dry rotted and come loose from its
With 85,300 miles which are consigner stated original miles, a
nicely restored 210 Wagon. A few paint issues, nice interior, and
mechanically sound, its ready to load up the kids and all the
trappings that go with a typical 1950's day at the beach, and head
on out. One, two, three o'clock four o'clock rock....
