For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet 210 in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Start talking classics and the second-generation Bel Air is almost always directly referenced. Offered in trim levels ranging from stripped economy champ to brassy boulevard bomber, Chevrolet produced tri-fives that were capable of satisfying nearly every buyer and every wallet. That legacy of universal appeal has continued throughout the last 65 years, giving fans and aficionados the parts and inspiration to create their own unique hot rods. Take this alluring 210 for example. Backing 350 cubic inches of massaged small block with a smooth 4-speed and modern athletics, this tastefully modified Chevy turns a traditionally appealing platform into a head-turning super star. Ready to hit the streets in some choice Motor City metal? Check out this sweet double-nickel!

CLASSIC STYLE

The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that was completed to a very high level, this slick 210 is an excellent example of what happens when an enthusiast builds their dream car! A series of solid body panels displays great fit and excellent finish. Professionally sprayed two-stage seals noble pigment in a glossy, wet-look shine. And the result is one very well done pavement scorcher that'll drop jaws at whatever event it rocks!

At the front of the car's glowing profile, a shaved bumper guards a polished grille, clear parking lamps and traditional, stainless-trimmed headlights. At the top of that grille, a bright Chevrolet crest leads a familiar Jetbird, which looks great in front of smoked glass that's stacked under polished frames and polished wipers. At the sides of that glass, a familiar post profile flies ornate quarter spears behind a power antenna and classy "Chevrolet" fender scripts. And at the back of the car, a massaged trunk hangs a second Chevrolet crest between a guarded bumper, polished exhaust tips and bright LED taillights.

PROVEN POWER

If you think the exterior of this classic is impressive, you're going to LOVE what's under its hood! Smooth, sorted and ready to roll, the car's high performance 350 is widely regarded as one of the best small blocks ever produced. At the top of the handsome mill, a polished air filter floats a reusable Spectre element on a reliable Edelbrock 4-barrel. That electronically choked carb feeds a lightweight Chevrolet intake, which feeds choice Vortec heads that are dressed in understated valve covers. A hot Delco Remy HEI distributor sequences sparks through quality Taylor plug wires. Lucid serpentine components spin a modern alternator opposite a modern AC compressor. A polished cap joins a sculpted shroud to dress a big radiator. And, visually, not a detail was missed in this 210's Gloss Black engine bay!

GREAT DRIVE

Park this sedan on a lift and you'll find solid, fully undercoated floors that provide a clean backdrop for a roster of proven components. A reliable 700R4 4-speed twists power to a 10-bolt rear-clip, which is finished with relocated springs and a beefy sway bar. That clip pushes a traditional front-half that features a second beefy sway bar. Easy turns come courtesy of traditional power steering. Easy stops are provided by power assisted discs and power assisted drums. Charred dinosaurs float from long-tube headers into aluminized pipes, which thread throaty turbo mufflers in front of a relocated fuel tank. And torque transitions to pavement through polished Boyd Coddington blades, which wear 215/55R17 Kumho Ecstas in front of 255/55R17 Kumho Ecstas.

SWEET CRUISE

Climb inside this razor-sharp Chevy and you'll find a retro chic interior that's all Delray. Embedding clean waffle stitching in crisp, color-keyed vinyl, the car's broad bench seats are straight up awesome! A two-tone dash fashions controls for modern air conditioning around tidy Classic Instruments telemetry. Delray-spec Daytona Carpet floats rugged floor mats between Delray side panels and a familiar Lokar shifter. The driver spins a timeless Chevrolet Rally Wheel around a tilting column. And the car's electronic trunk disposes of its factory spare tire well to make ample room for supplies and trophies.

Combining great performance with crisp aesthetics and timeless Motor City swagger, this impressive 210 really puts the "class" in classic. And best of all, being a tri-five Chevy, it'll always be one of the most in-demand collector cars on the market. On the hunt for some no excuses metal that'll draw a crowd wherever it goes? Here's your kind of fun!
