For sale in our Chicago showroom is this freshly built 1957 Chevrolet 210. This car was born with a fuel efficient 6-cylinder engine, which had enough pep for a casual cruise, but that was about it. The seller took this car off the deep end of the power pool by stuffing a fuel injected 454 big block Chevrolet under the hood giving this classic cruiser a whole lot more grunt. The rest of the car received similar treatment by getting a 700R4 overdrive automatic transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear axle all set up to handle the power. A custom front cross-member was put installed to accommodate a rack and pinion front steering assembly, and tubular front control arms were installed to cut down on un-sprung weight and add strength to the front end of the car. Upgrading the function of the car is only half the picture. The entire body of the vehicle went through a complete transformation to bring it to the next level and match its new performance capabilities. A layer of Dark Metallic Blue pulled from the Mazda palette has been professionally applied over this solid body, helping it follow the higher modeled American icon, the Bel Air. The interior has been completely gone through as well, with an extremely soft synthetic leather material applied over the seats, color matched dashboard, center-mounted power window switches, a high-end custom sound system, and several other goodies making the inside as comfortable to be in as the outside is to look at. This truly is the best of both worlds; the looks and styling of a timeless classic with all of the modern pleasantries of today. Options include: AM/FM/CD player, Lumbar Support, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Seats, Power Windows, Telescopic Wheel, Tilt Wheel, Traction Control, Seat Belts, Synthetic Leather Interior, and Racing Wheels.
