This 1957 Chevrolet 210 is a thoughtful build with a history of
solid investments. It makes for an attractive classic style that
also offers the right upgrades. With a great shade of red, a bucket
seat interior, an upgraded five-speed, enhanced V8 power, and some
Bel Air-style flair, you're looking at a sharp classic that's made
This loves to grab attention with its dark red paint. It's a bold
color with an attitude, and a modern luster loves the sunlight.
This was done in 2006 as part of a frame-off restoration. And while
most classic cars would only get one big restoration investment,
this has kicked off a pattern of good care and additions over the
last few years. You'll especially see the difference as you dig
into the details inside this car. But first, take some time to
appreciate the style this one gives in its first impression. There
are straight panels and good gaps that make for the right base to
showcase the upgraded Bel Air full-length trim with a fan-style
insert. Plus, the front end is another big part of this icon, so
they made sure this chrome gives off a 10,000-watt smile. The gold
anodized trim of this tri-five Chevy also looks great against the
deep red. It makes for a nice vintage style, but this one also
likes to announce its upgraded nature. The tinted windows, wide
dual exhaust tips, and Rally wheels with large/wider rear tires
give this classic Chevy even more cruiser flair.
Just like the exterior, the interior is tastefully upgraded, but it
doesn't lose the vintage style. For example, the front bench has
been replaced by dual bucket seats borrowed from a '65 Chevelle.
But it's hard to recognize that because these were given quality
Ciadella seat covers that have the '57 Bel Air coated cloth inserts
and bright button-top seatbacks. This was part of a fresh
investment in 2018 that also included matching door panels and new
carpeting. Even the dash was restored to give you nice details like
the working courtesy light and clock. There's an added center
console from '63 Impala, an upgraded shifter, and a retro-style
AM/FM stereo w/aux input and upgraded speakers. The artful steering
wheel is another Impala upgrade that has the right flair to fit
well in this '57. And now it's mounted on a tilt column so you can
get the best view of the clear gauges.
The engine bay likes to impress, too. The smooth and dark inner
walls funnel all your attention to the bright components in the
middle. And it all looks so clean because this has only gone 1,200
miles since the rebuild was completed. It's a 305 cubic-inch V8 -
larger than any small block available in '57. And it has more
upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor with electric
choke and an Edelbrock aluminum intake. You've also got good
supporting components like a new aluminum radiator added in 2020,
as well as an American Wire Kit and upgraded fuse box done in 2018.
It's a strong powerhouse and you get to enjoy it to the fullest
thanks to the upgraded five-speed manual transmission. Plus, power
steering, power brakes, front discs, and newer BF Goodrich Radial
tires are all part of a solid driving total package.
This is the iconic Chevy that's built with upgrades for both added
style and driving substance. Don't let something this awesome slip
away, call today!
