Beautiful two-tone on the outside, a custom A/C interior, and small
block V8 power under the hood - this 1955 Chevrolet 210 Del Ray
takes an iconic classic and fills it with everything you want in a
turn-key ready package.
This Del Ray Club Coupe has a great sense of style. It takes the
timeless red and white two-tone and has it cleanly separated by the
proper trim lines. Of course, you could never get this kind of
luster and shine in '55, and so what is grabbing your attention now
is a full professional respray that takes advantage of a modern
application. But it takes more than just vivid paint to be a
cut-above classic. All the brightwork looks like it has been
maintained to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors, and
the panels line up so that the side trim continues with an
uninterrupted appearance. But the longer you look at this one, the
more you realize it's much more than just a great-looking vintage
coupe. There are some great upgrades. Some are cool cruiser
details, like the tri-bar headlights, billet grille, and blue-dot
taillights. Others add aggression like the Cragar SS wheels.
The interior offers a more comfortable environment for everyone. It
starts with two wide rows of benches finished in a comfy gray
cloth. The inserts in the seats even pay tribute to the special
pattern the factory gave a 210 Del Ray like this. The headliner and
door panels are matching gray, and there's a nice black carpet to
hide the dirt from a road trip. In fact, this car was built to be a
driver. You know that from upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM
digital tuner w/cassette, better door armrests, a movable center
console, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The sports steering
wheel, B&M floor shifter, upgraded gauges with column-mounted
tach also let you know this is a driver's classic.
The engine bay does a great job of both showing off history and
delivering proper power. For example, this 283 cubic-inch V8
represents the largest displacement offered in the Tri-Five era.
It's an upgraded motor that inhales deeper with an Edelbrock
four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. It fires up readily
like a motor that's ready to hit the road. And this driver's nature
is also felt with the level of features, like a three-speed
automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and a
rear sway bar.
This '55 Chevy is a real-deal Del Ray that's been upgraded in the
same way 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. Call now!
