This 1955 Chevrolet 210 Handyman Wagon is a rare kin to the
legendary Nomad. But when you show up at the car shows, the bold
paint, custom A/C interior, and performance V8, will make people
instantly recognize that this quality two-door custom wagon has a
personality all of its own.
This Chevy is out to be the impressive aggressor. The red and black two-tone begs to be shown in the sunshine, thanks to the huge luster that only comes from investing in the modern paint and a professional hand applying it. Of course, to have this shine roll so evenly across the body also requires investing in making sure the body has any traces of being a "Handyman" erased. And like any good '50s machine, this one carries plenty of mirror-like brightwork. Up front it's the distinctive '55 Chevy grille and wraparound bumper that launched the legendary Tri-Five era. Along the side everything is complete, including the aircraft-inspired trim running down the body, and the dual strips that are an unbroken line both above and below the glass. And just to remind everyone that this classic means business, there's a great set of 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.
One look inside, and you can tell how much was invested in this custom build. It starts with the leather buckets up front that have better bolstering than anything that came out of the 1950s for superior comfort. The pristine cream color on these front seats is not only shared with the rear ones, but also the custom panels, headliner, and even the new cup holder center console. In total, this one has that great uniform appearance that everyone loves to see at the shows. But this build was also meant to be a real cruiser, too. It has great features to keep everyone happy on the open road, including power windows and ice-cold air conditioning. Plus, the AM/FM/CD/DVD/XM stereo is nicely integrated in the dash, and it even has Bluetooth capabilities, so you can play modern tunes in this very vintage ride. But like any good custom classic, the best treats are reserved for the driver. You get a stylish three-spoke sports steering wheel, and you stay completely informed on everything that's going on under the hood thanks to the cool blue glow of the Dakota Digital gauges.
An iconic '55 Chevy deserves an icon in the engine bay. And this 350 cubic-inch small block has been dressed to impress with the bright Chevrolet valve covers, air grabber, compressor, March pulleys, and so much more. When you look beyond the flash, you'll happily see the substance of an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that feed the rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust. But there's much more to this Chevy than just the right V8 muscle. With a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, you can comfortably cruise this custom anywhere.
This is car was built to turn heads. It has the spirit of the Nomad, but the larger back area is nice to have considering all the trophies you're going to take home. A custom icon like this may never come around again. Don't wait...call today!
