The 1957 Chevrolet is an icon all on its own. But while others out
there go for the outrageous, this one is about showcasing a high
degree of originality with only the right subtle upgrades. So if
you love your icons to have a time capsule-like quality, dig into
the details on this one.
This car gives the impression of both quality and originality. The
India Ivory and Onyx Black two-tone is correct for this car, and it
was refreshed later in life with a professional application that
retains a nice gloss and shine. So the look really does have the
timeless premium feel of a tuxedo. The '57 Chevy is an absolute
icon, and the chrome bumper/grille combo that we know so well has
the kind of shine that will fill you with pride. And the way the
full side trim runs likes it's an unbroken line not only looks
great, but it also showcases the fitting of the doors and panels.
These 210s did not get the rear brightwork like the Bel Airs, and
it works particularly well here as the white insert coordinates
with the roof and the whitewall tires. So it's a classic that looks
both stock and stylish.
Inside, is more of the black and white two-tone. And like any good
1950s machine, there's plenty of gleaming brightwork, too. There is
a freshness and high-quality presentation to the doors, headliner,
sun visors, carpeting, and all other major areas. And with the
seats protected in fresh plastic, it's hard to tell if these are
exceptionally preserved originals or just a solid investment in the
right upholstery. And that's the whole impression of the interior.
It's so correct from the gauges to the optional tissue tray, that
most people will be wow'd by the full time warp package. But
because a classic is made to be enjoyed in the road, they did
upgrade the music with a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette
and upgraded amplified speakers.
Under the hood is a period-correct version of Chevy's Blue Flame
six. The 235 cubic-inch motor is smooth and torquey, and it was a
mainstay of Chevrolet vehicles for decades. We love having this
motor, because it just fits well with this sedan's factory-style
spirit. So you know you'll be happy to show off the bright blue
block radiating from within the dark engine bay. And everything
around it looks right from the Rochester single-barrel carb to the
Delco-Remy generator. But the real secret here is that a rebuild in
2007 keeps it a true strong-runner. The 210 was the mid-line for
Chevy in '57 but this one does have the premium feature Powerglide
automatic transmission to make sure you can show off this unique
icon with ease.
This distinctive Chevy even comes with terrific paperwork. It
includes the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, maintenance
records, and build receipts. This Chevy 210 is a rare treat that's
has been looked after correctly, and so it's ready to cruise out of
our showroom right now. Call today!!!
