Rarer than a Bel Air but still gives you the iconic design, this 1957 Chevrolet 210 hardtop is also powered by a performance small block and close-ratio four-speed. This is the kind of classic you would build yourself, but instead it's ready today with less than 300 miles since restoration.
Two-tone Tropical Turquoise and India Ivory and is the car's original color, and on a '57 Chevy, keeping it period appropriate is always a smart move. But a car that looks this appealing only comes from getting applying nice paint over a straight body, and the restoration shows that it was a proper investment. And you understand this level of quality the moment the sunshine hits this coupe. But it takes more than just the paint and the metal to look this good. These are chrome kings, so newer bumpers shine like mirrors. And of course it's essential for all of the intricate trim pieces to look just as good – from the dual rockets on the hood, to the unbroken sweeping side pieces, to the rear tailfins. And a nice set of Cragar SS wheels keeps a period-correct appearance with also signaling this one has a performance heart.
We all love a pillarless hardtop because it gives us an unobstructed view of the interior. So on a coupe like this, it was important that the restoration got it right, too. That's why the teal seats nicely match the exterior paint. Plus, the stylized charcoal inserts and bright trim add comfort and panache. The matching pattern on the doors panels means the moment you get out at the car show, this coupe will draw attention. But more than just look great, this icon was meant for driving. You sit behind the original 210 white and chrome steering wheel. The original-style gauges are clear and easy to read, and you even have an original AM radio. But that Hurst floor shifter really lets you know there's something special under the hood.
One look in the engine bay, and you'll see a nice investment in making this classic a strong runner. You're looking at a performance-built 350 cubic-inch small block that has been bored .30 over with roller rockers and mild cam. It's further enhanced with a host of Edelbrock upgrades, including, four-barrel carburetor Torker intake, and valve covers. There's huge power in this V8, and the rumble of the dual exhaust lets everyone know it. Best of all, you have full control of the sound and the fury with a Muncie M22 close-ration four-speed manual transmission. This full power package has been built with reliable support components like an aluminum radiator and fresh hoses. We bet you've also taken notice of the exceptionally clean engine bay, and that's what only 289 break in miles will do for you. Plus, the undercarriage photos tell you how thorough the restoration truly was. And while you're looking down there, you can spot upgrades like the newer suspension components and the front disc brakes.
Complete with restoration photos and the owner's manual, the 210 hardtop is far more rare than its Bel Air hardtop sibling. That means you get a more unique vehicle with a serious performance upgrade in a package that's fresh from restoration. So yes, you can get everything you want in a classic, but only is you act fast.
