Ever wanted to drive that perfect piece of classic Americana? Something that's instantly recognizable for being an icon and never leaves you wanting for anything. That's why this 1957 Chevrolet 210 has the legendary Tri-Five profile in bold two-tone on the outside, A/C on the inside, and a well-built V8 with an upgraded five-speed to keep it all cruising right.
It's evident that a lot of care went into to keeping the panels straight and the gaps uniform. This is quite important because that bright side trim sweeps from front to tail. So this one gives a look of quality with the way the full body lines runs virtually uninterrupted. So with such great side trim, you can see why they upgraded this 210 to the Bel Air's iconic fan style insert in the tailfin. Blockbuster Blue with a white roof is a distinctive color package that will let people take note of this car from blocks away. And while you have all the right iconic classic chrome pieces (especially the shimmering '57 front end,) the Cragar SS wheels and dual exhaust tips also show that the brightwork likes to announce this is an upgrade machine.
The interior has the unmistakable look of a fresh investment...we even have the receipt to prove it! The gray looks tasteful against the exterior blue that returns on the door tops and dash. And it has a plush feeling everywhere from the carpeting to the seats. But you really start to feel the added value when you slip behind the wheel. For example, you get the artful style classic steering wheel, but now it's on a tilt column. That gives you a great view to the new and crisp Classic Instruments gauge package. And the large tach in on top of the dash goes great with the Hurst shifter boldly coming up from the floor. There's even air conditioning running modern R134a for easy servicing, and the retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo gives you the best driving music. Starting to get the picture on this one? It has been subtly upgraded everywhere for extra power and everyday comfort.
Under the hood looks tidy and well-detailed, with fresh-looking hoses, belts, and wiring. There's plenty of flair including the bright block, polished air cleaner, and finned valve covers. The Tri-Five Chevys were the dawn of the small block, but they were never given anything as powerful as this. It starts with a larger 350 cubic-inch V8, and it has had performance components added such as a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, Weiand aluminum intake, and HEI ignition. Headers add extra power while giving a sweet tune to the upgraded X-pipe dual exhaust. Plus, the upgrade in late 2018 to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission means a great overall driver that gives you full control as well as overdrive. Power steering, power brakes w/front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As at all corners complete a smooth and powerful package that was built to be enjoyed.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, title documentation, maintenance records, and build receipts. This is one of those rare cars that celebrates its history while squarely keeping its eye on the future. The trophies you pick up along the way are just the bonus. Call today!!!
