This 1955 Chevrolet 210 Del Ray Club Coupe has upgraded V8 power, a
custom/interior, and a solid cruising attitude. It makes for a
terrific way to drive an icon.
To understand the full appeal of this car, you need to look at it
like a true cruiser. The maroon and beige two-tone looks ideal on a
1950s machine. It was a later upgrade that still knows how to get
attention at the stoplights, but the aged-in style also means
you'll never hesitate to hit the streets. A cruiser also means
upgrades. Some are subtle, like the upgrade to full Bel Air trim.
This goes well with the wraparound chrome bumpers, intricate
grille, and jet-inspired hood ornament. And we love the little
things, like the blue-dot tail lights and Chevy bowtie dual exhaust
tips. Plus, the Weld Racing wheels are a nice addition. It delivers
on the custom attitude with the sporty stance to go quite well with
this car's road-ready theme.
The trim tag appears to indicate that this is a Del Ray model. Part
of the distinction of those was an upgraded interior with distinct
upholstery. This one takes that feeling and gives it a more modern
twist. The seating is a newer addition that feels fresh and has
cool custom details like the pearlescent glow of the upholstery and
the bow tie in the rear seatback. Custom door panels, coordinating
headliners, and clean loop carpeting create an inviting style. And
just like the exterior, there are nice little things inside that
make the difference, like the working dome light, classic trunk
mat, and a smooth dash done in maroon to match the outside. Plus,
there's more of that proper cruiser feeling. There's classic-style
radio on display, but the real driving music comes from the
glovebox's modern AM/FM Bluetooth stereo. And this classic is built
with the driver in mind, with a Sunpro auxiliary gauge trio below
the dash and a grippy sports steering wheel on a tilt column.
While the 1955 Chevy launched this new V8 era, it never had
anything as large as this 350 cubic-inch under the hood now. It
also has the right cruising upgrades, like an Edelbrock AVS
four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, and an
aluminum radiator with an electric fan. The V8 fires up readily and
makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers.
So it's easy to enjoy the drive, especially with features like the
three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes,
front discs, and wide Cooper Cobra tires.
Style, comfort, and an easy-driving attitude make this '55 Chevy
ready for those who know what a true cruiser should be. Call
