800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This classic 1955 Chevrolet 210 sedan has a highly authentic total package right down to the V8 under the hood. So when an such a correct icon is also so affordable, you know this deal is irresistible.
Tri-Five Chevys are always in demand, and this is the one that launched the legend. The factory-correct Neptune Green covers every inch of this sedan, even on the matching wheels. So we're glad someone invested in a respray later in life to give it a fine luster in the sunshine. But proper bright work is what you really need to get this icon right. The nicely incorporated wraparound bumpers, wide grille, jet-inspired hood ornament, and even the wheel covers are present and shining. Plus, the way the rear trim almost seamlessly passes through the door line is another sign of quality. So you'll love this one for its authenticity, right down to its set of whitewall tires.
The turquoise-like paint continues on the inside, and now it's joined by a deeper shade of green. It's all factory-correct and when combined with the exterior, it gives this sedan a bit of a tropical feel. There have been some nice investments here with correctly restored seats and carpeting. So they blend nicely with all the factory pieces like the artful steering wheel and dual cowl dash. It creates a time capsule-like atmosphere that has enough space to share with family and friends.
And if you like time capsules, just lift the hood. The Tri-Fives launched Chevy's small block era, and so plenty of people will get excited about this engine bay. Not only is 265 cubic inches the correct first-ever small block displacement, but also this is a year-correct block. So while the original motor cannot be confirmed, most people are going to suspect it is even before you say anything. The V8 is good for power, and the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission lets you take full control of it. Plus, the newer muffler and radiator are the kind of components that keep this classic motoring down the road nicely. In fact, just the way this V8 faithfully fires up tells you it has been treated with the correct respect.
There's no shortage of '55 Chevy fans out there. So when you can find one with this level of originality, and priced so nice, then you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call now!
