Any Tri-Five Chevy is a cool car, but some are shining stars
amongst the standouts. This 1956 Chevrolet 210 Post coupe is in
that rarefied category that has been restored with a radiant
two-tone exterior, special interior (with added comforts like A/C,)
and a powerful V8 heart.
The shoebox Chevys are icons, and this one proudly wears blue and
white two-tone that you love from this era. Of course, you could
never get this kind of luster and shine in '56. So what is grabbing
your attention is a huge pearlescent glow that radiates in any
light. It's a bright beacon announcing this is something special.
And we have thousands $$$$$ in receipts documenting investments
over multiple years for this Chevy. That's also what the
all-important brightwork shines like its new. Those wraparound
chrome bumpers, jet-inspired hood ornament, window trim, polished
wheel, and the 1956's unique grille all have the kind of shine that
will fill you with pride. And we especially love the 210's sweeping
side trim that shows off the straightness of the panels while
providing a distinct separation point for the two colors.
Inside the blue and white theme continues. You'll especially love
showing off the upgraded white seats because it has the cool tuck
and roll texture that's perfect for a upgraded Tri-Five. And the
side panels are even done to match. All the details are nice, right
down to the new handles and the trim on the dual cowl dash. It's
the kind of classic you'll want to share with family and friends.
And you can keep them all happy with upgrades like the retro-style
AM/FM digital tuner featuring Bluetooth, and there's air
conditioning blowing cold with modern R134a. And this classic is
built with the driver in mind with a Hurst ProMatic shifter,
AutoMeter auxiliary gauges, wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on an
Ididit tilt column.
The Tri-Five Chevys were the dawn of the small block, but they were
never given anything as powerful as this. It starts with a larger
350 cubic-inch V8. The consignor states it was rebuilt in 2005 and
only about 3,200 miles since then. It has had performance
components added such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor,
Edelbrock aluminum intake, and Hooker long tube headers feeding the
rumbling dual exhaust. But more than just performance, this one was
built to handle everyday driving with features like an MSD
ignition, upgraded pulleys, and a big Griffin aluminum radiator w/
dual electric fans. This is purposely done because this
impressive-looking Chevy was built to easily be a nice cruiser with
features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power
steering, and power brakes with discs up front.
This radiant '56 Chevy is the classic you would build if you had
the time. But instead you get to skip right to the fun part, and
this cool coupe can have you cruising this weekend... but only if
you call today!
