614 E. Auto Center Dr.
This 1956 Chevrolet 210 Wagon takes a favorite family classic and gives it even more easy cruiser appeal. That means this two-tone grocery-getter now has features like an enhanced V8 and a cold-blowing A/C interior.
The orange metallic has an almost red-line appearance, and the white roof is pure 1950s cool. So the two-tone sets the right overall personality of this car. After all, you get great classic pieces like the jet-inspired side trim, wraparound chrome bumper, unique '56 grille, wraparound rear glass, and handy two-piece tailgate. But you can also see this one goes for a more modern appeal with features like the bright dual exhaust tips, deeply tinted windows, and American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. The '56 Chevy is an icon, and overall, this is very much a driver-quality example. So those who need perfection may just see this as a good base for a restoration. But what driver-quality also means is that it's driver-ready, and that's the real heart of the appeal here. As you look over the full package, you'll see a wagon that was given the right investments to be the kind of fun cruiser you take out on a whim.
The interior has an inviting style that's great for a wagon. The seats look great with the piping and pleats that mimic the classic Tri-Five Chevy style, but the brown velour makes for a much more cushy/comfy experience. And it looks stylish with the door panels and newer carpeting done to coordinate. You have a true classic style with the double-hump dash and the Delco AM radio there for a display. But now you have cruiser-ready features, like a grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel, seatbelts in both rows, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And that big cargo area is perfect for tailgating or just swallowing another vintage project.
The Tri-Five Chevys launched the legendary small block, and the 283 cubic-inch unit was the largest in their time. So it's great to have an era-correct powerhouse under the hood. We all know these motors have a hardy construction that loves upgrades, and so this takes advantage of evolution and adds extra pep with a Proform four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. And there are also features for a better all-around cruiser, like a newer alternator and an aluminum radiator. Plus, the transmission is a TH400 three-speed automatic. That means you have smooth shifting today and a hardy construction to handle just about any performance upgrades you may want to do in the future. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern tires make it an all-around solid cruiser.
This is a true icon made to be a true cruiser. So if you love a cool grocery-getter, this '56 is ready for you. Call today!!!
