$159,900  

Vehicle Description

Virtually everyone knows Chevrolet as one of Detroit's legendary muscle car divisions. What they might not know is that the brand's storied muscle car pedigree actually started when GM began mounting hot small block power in plush people movers like this stylish 1955 210. The very definition of class, this pleasing pro-tourer wraps striking blue and silver aesthetics around custom leather, a hot LS3 and choice Art Morrison chassis upgrades. For fans of '50s metal, it doesn't get much better than a tri-five Chevy. And if you're an enthusiast who's itching for an all-American cruiser that's sure to be the star of every show around, this sweet coupe is your kind of classic!

BANNER COLORS FOR A BANNER BOWTIE

Built to turn heads and kick asphalt, this impressive Chevy is the beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that layered solid sheetmetal in professional e-coating, striking PPG metallic base and glossy PPG clear. At the front of those svelte aesthetics, a smoothed bumper guards a polished grille, stainless-trimmed parking lamps and modern headlights. At the top of that grille, a Chevrolet-branded hood floats a requisite Jetbird topper in front of polished wipers and a stainless-trimmed 'post' greenhouse that's finished with smoked glass. At the base of that restoration-fresh glass, a crisp profile aligns traditional door handles with classy "Chevrolet" scripts and ornate speed spears. And at the back of the car, a second smoothed bumper reflects a trick tag frame, a second Chevy crest and slick LED tail lamps.

PROVEN CHEVROLET POWER

Pop this 210's stylish hood and you'll find 6.2 liters of hot Chevy small block that, like the car's restoration, is fully sorted and ready to roll. Sourced from the pros at World Products, that performance-proven mill utilizes aluminum construction, an Eagle rotating assembly and CNC-ed LS3 heads to mix miles of thrills with years of reliable cruising. Chromed air boxes, integrated remotely into the car's trick core support, whip wind through chromed tubes that are cinched to a polished throttle body. That reliable gate feeds a chromed Street & Performance high rise intake that's juiced by Holley electronic fuel injection. Chromed serpentine components spin a color-keyed water pump between a chromed alternator and a chromed AC compressor. There's a polished radiator that's fitted with a polished expansion tank, a polished upper tube and a stainless-trimmed puller fan. Short MSD plug wires join a Wilwood master cylinder and color-keyed headers to detail an otherwise purpose-built performer. And everything rides in a massaged engine bay that's finished with trick dipsticks, a polished oil cap, attractive Chevrolet valve covers and polished Eddie Motorsports hood supports.

ART MORRISON CHEVROLET

Under the car, traditional tri-five bones have been supplemented with sturdy Art Morrison chassis components that blend nicely with factory frame rails. Those bones make excellent use of a modern independent front-clip, which backs power-rack-and-pinion steering with chromed control arms, adjustable coil-overs and a chromed sway bar. That clip gets pushed by a sturdy 9-inch posi that, complete with Moser axles, is fully integrated into a modern 4-bar rear-clip that's finished with chromed links, a chromed sway bar and two more adjustable coil-overs. Shifts get dealt by a 4L60E automatic transmission, which utilizes a Performance Torque Converter to spin a lightweight aluminum driveshaft. Stops are provided by polished Wilwood calipers, which squeeze a total of 20 pistons around drilled and slotted Wilwood rotors. Polished stainless pipes float spent gases through polished Magnaflow mufflers while an electronic fuel pump drains a stainless, 25-gallon tank. And the car sits low and mean on polished Billet Specialties Turbines, which spin 225/40ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 275/35ZR20 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs.

CHOICE CUSTOMIZATION

Open this Chevy's doors and you'll find a killer cockpit that successfully mixes shades of custom leather thanks to the folks at Holly Pond, Alabama's M&M Hot Rod Interiors. Front and center, a gorgeous dash seats glowing Dakota Digital VHX telemetry next to a digital clock and cool Vintage Air conditioning. Speaking of seating, a quartet of plush buckets, cribbed from a modern GTO, feature full power adjustment for the front two passengers. Sculpted side panels point stylish billet handles in front of power-operated windows. A custom console centers a simple Lokar shifter and crisp Pioneer audio on plush carpet that's shaded by billet foot pedals. The driver carves curves through a polished and bowtie-branded steering wheel, which laps a polished, tilting column. And the passenger's stow essentials in a custom-upholstered trunk that's accessed via polished Eddie Motorsports deck supports.

This slick Chevy is a super cool pro-tourer that'll easily be the center of attention wherever it roams. With its smooth V8, athletic chassis and tailored aesthetics, it represents the pinnacle of American style both new and old. Looking for a top-notch classic to enjoy for years to come? Your search is officially over!
