Vehicle Description

With bold paint, a nice stance, and an upgraded ZZ4 crate V8, this 1956 Chevrolet 210 hardtop has some attitude. But this is a frame-off restoration car where every detail was scrutinized. So with awesome driving features like four-wheel disc brakes and an overdrive transmission, this one proves it's an all-around great classic cruiser.

The two-tone red and white color combination is exactly how you want this classic to look. The extra luster is courtesy of a more modern respray in a PPG Tricoat, and there's so much detail work that it's probably the smoothest steel you'll ever feel. It sets the tone perfectly for how you want to be seen in this coupe: a great classic that has been enhanced for a little more "look at me!" attitude that happened back in the day. But more than just nostalgia, make sure you take some time to look at how it gets the fundamentals correct. All the body panels fit well, the doors close with authority, the chrome king bumpers shine like mirrors, and all the intricate trim specific to the '56 is complete. But this cruiser can do so much more than just let you live your American Graffiti fantasies. Those large 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust alloys signal that there's more to this hardtop than just it vintage appeal.

The interior is tastefully upgraded so that you get plenty of convenience without jeopardizing the vintage attitude. For example, you still get the classic split bench set up front, but now it's finished in supple leatherette. This cream color is continued on custom contoured door panels, headliner, and dash. It combines with the bright red carpeting to follow a similar tone of the exterior for a stellar look inside and out. So this will have you keeping all the windows down on this pillarelss hardtop just so everyone can get a better view. The Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo upgrades the driving music, and the full package is done to upgrade the driving experience. This includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel on a tilt column, upgraded gauges, and a B&M Quicksilver shifter.

The clean red walls of the engine bay funnel all your attention to the motor. And you can tell this is a fresh and powerful package just from the first glance. It's a ZZ4 performance crate V8. And while these have serious power right out of the box, this one has all the right go-fast goodies added, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum heads, and Hedman headers. There even the right supporting pieces with all the fresh components and an aluminum radiator. The undercarriage photos reveal the cleanliness that only comes from a well-done frame-off restoration. Plus, you'll see upgrades, like tubular front A-arms and drilled & slotted four-wheel power disc brakes. More than just a powerful classic, this is ready to easily take you near or far with nice driving features like power steering and a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive.

This iconic Chevy is strong, fresh, and absolutely awesome. So if you like the best of everything, call today!
