We love a Tri-Five Chevy because they feel like they should always
be out cruising the boulevard, and this 1955 Chevrolet 210 has been
restored with that idea in mind. A radiant two-tone exterior, a
comfy upgraded interior, four-on-the-floor, and a powerful V8 heart
make it irresistible.
This is a stylish-looking classic. It starts with a timelessly
attractive red and white two-tone. This has the kind of gloss that
tells you there were good investments here later in the car's life,
and the red has plenty of metallic that goes well with all that
radiant brightwork. On this 210 model, chrome surrounds every piece
of glass, covers both bumpers, and surrounds every exterior light.
And the side trim provides a clean divider for the two colors. It
all makes for a comprehensive package that has clean sheet metal
for a base. So yes, this Chevy is impressive. And just to make sure
you know this is a road-ready cruiser, there are details like
tinted windows and classic Cragar SS wheels. So it's not an
over-the-top kind of modification, and instead, it's just about
getting that classic boulevard machine look right.
The red and white interior is a thoughtfully coordinated way to
continue the vintage and stylish appearance. You'll especially love
showing off the white vinyl seats because they have the cool
tuck-and-roll inserts that people love. Plus, the side panels,
carpeting, and dash are all part of this harmonized package to
create a cool uniform appearance. This is a true cruiser, and so
there are provisions for upgraded comfort with a more modern stereo
and R134a air conditioning (they will need servicing to function
again. You can especially tell that this classic was built with the
driver in mind. You have worthwhile upgrades like AutoMeter
auxiliary gauges, a Chevy three-spoke sports steering wheel, and a
tilt column. And the column-mounted Sun Super tach goes especially
well with the Hurst floor shifter.
The engine bay has the solid look of well-built small block power.
It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 built with a Holley 650 CFM four-barrel
carburetor, Weiand Street Warrior intake, and long tube headers.
We're even told it has been bored .30 over given upgraded
internals, and that feeling is reinforced by the way this one feels
so stoutly powerful. You get to take full advantage of this
upgraded power and rumble with the Muncie M20 four-speed manual
transmission with a Ram HDX clutch. But more than just performance,
this one was built to handle everyday driving with features like a
Wilwood master cylinder, CPP power steering box, Wilwood front
discs, and KYB shocks.
This is the iconic classic with the best cruiser details. So if you
want to have a Tri-Five that looks and feels boulevard-ready, call
