For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet 210 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This is a professionally-built street-eating custom that also happens to be one of the most iconic cars around. So when you look over every inch of this 1955 Chevrolet 210 Pro street, make sure you check out the full custom chassis, racing four-speed, and a V8 built by a legend. And because you can hang a license plate on a pro street car, this wild child even comes with a nicely appointed interior that includes air conditioning!

Black paint black is one of the most sinister ways to represent a street machine. It has an unmistakable deep and glossy finish that makes the car both attractive and mean. This looks great, but it isn't showroom perfect in every area... and that's basically by intention. This is a steel body car, but the fenders, hood, and trunk were changed to lightweight fiberglass. The roof had three inches chopped out of it for a sleeker profile. There are speed holes drilled into the front bumper. And most of the glass has been traded for plexiglass. So where some other Tri-Fives have a superfluous shine that adds weight, this one makes sure to have plenty of lightweight substance within the iconic style. More of this sleeker and speedy set up is also seen in the details like the frenched license plate, sport mirror, deleted trim, and the wheelie bar. The stance may be hugging the ground, but you can still clearly see the shine of the Weld-style racing wheels that draw attention to the massive rear racing tires. So you still have the beautiful and slippery lines that make the Tri-Five an icon, but with a purposefulness that lets you know it's a true racer. In fact, this car was initially built for Marc Reno - NASCAR Crew Chief for Mark Martin, Sterling Marlin, and Brad Keselowski.

The black color theme is carried inside. It's always a good look on a powerful machine, and this is a professional-grade setup. That means a full race cage that adds safety and strength. There's also a race-ready steering column with a detachable wheel, MSD ignition with rev limiter, AutoMeter Ultra-Lite Carbon Fiber readouts, and a memory tach. Because this is a pro street machine, there is an eye for added comfort. The best way you see this mix of power and comfort is with the seats. There are true racer's buckets with Simpson belts. But they also have good padding and are finished in supple leather. There's also an impressive list of features that you won't get on a full race, like power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo, JL Audio speakers, and the overall well-finished nature of the interior. There's even cold-blowing air conditioning!

Tilt the custom hood forward, and it puts a polished and fortified powerhouse on display. We're even told that this engine was built by the late-great Randy Dorton of Hendricks Motorsports fame. It's a fully-built 416 cubic-inch V8. It's a lightweight aluminum block with a Dart intake, dry-sump oiling, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. The custom headers add power while feeding the thundering dual exhaust boom tube tips. There are terrific supporting components, like the Griffin aluminum radiator, electric fans, and the dual Optima batteries in the trunk for weight distribution. Making sure that you are in full control of this monster motor and its thunderous symphony is the Jericho four-speed manual transmission with a twin-disc puck clutch. This feeds into a Detroit Locker rear with 31 spline axles. Also, take some time to look at the undercarriage photos. There you'll see a strong full custom chassis. It has a ton of terrific features like a tubular control arm front end, a four-link rear with diagonal bar, full coilovers, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

Complete with build receipts, this is a unique icon with an awesome pedigree. It's like no other Tri-Five you've known before, and now that you've seen it, you'll never forget it. That's why it needs to be in your garage. Call now!
