An iconic 1955 Chevrolet 210 Coupe with a slick hot rod exterior,
upgraded interior, and huge big block power is a classic that's
always cool and always in style.
This is the first year for the shoebox Chevys - a car that we turned into an icon of big American power. So it's important to get all the details right on this custom creation. It starts with the metallic maroon paint. You know no one could get this kind of luster from the factory in '55, and instead this is an investment in smooth clearcoat for a very modern shine. And just to make sure the sunlight rolls over all the curves of the body with ease, many of the emblems have been removed to give it a super slick overall appearance. But this coupe is also not lacking brightwork. The bumpers have been given the right attention to shine like mirrors; the panels line up so that the side trim continues uninterrupted; and the grille is like a 10,000-watt smile. The piece that unites it all together is a set of American Racing Torq Thrust wheels that have a huge shine and also the aggression of an 18/20-inch front/rear staggered setup.
The interior is instantly recognizable to '55 Chevy fans as the cool pattern given to the Del Ray model. This nice upgrade to the black and ivory exclusive pattern is something everyone loves to see at the car shows. It also creates an atmosphere that's far fresher than new, without losing the period-correct feeling. Everything is in place that you'll love like the correct dual cowl dashboard that's reminiscent of the Corvette and the highly stylized three-spoke steering wheel. But also you start to notice some additional pieces like the auxiliary gauges below the dash, and the large SunPro tach mounted next to the speedometer. It's the kind of hints that tell you there's big power inside this classic even before you turn the key.
The shoebox Chevys might be famous for launching the small block V8s, but this coupe proves that the big blocks fit in the engine bay, too. This 454 cubic-inch motor is show-ready with great features such as the big orange block, shining valve coves & air grabber, and all the fresh belts, wires & hoses. And when you look beyond the shine you'll also see the performance substance of a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and long tube headers that feed the rumbling Flowmaster dual exhaust. So you know you've got some serious power backing up the hot rod image, and the three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to handle it all. But more than just a motor, this build includes great driving features like power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of Goodyear Eagle tires.
