Big V8 power, four-on-the-floor, and a comfy A/C interior make this instantly attractive. But the fact that you get it on an iconic 1955 Chevrolet 210 with a slick two-tone makes this one absolutely irresistible.
This one instantly announces it's something special. Two-tones were terrific to have on a '55 Chevy, but the presentation is quite modern here. You can tell there was a small fortune spent just by the way the metallic blue radiates. Plus, the off-white give this all the appeal of blueberries and cream. And the way the light rolls evenly across the whole car just reaffirms its quality. Plus, this is one for the lovers of brightwork. The wraparound bumpers, legendary '55 grille, and jet-inspired trim all have a mirror-like appearance of a well-prepared classic. And the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels lets everyone know there have been investment to upgrade this one while still keeping classic style.
Just like the exterior, the interior delivers all the right upgrades without losing its vintage appeal. For example, the blue and white theme from the exterior is continued on the seats. These have the classic Del Ray pattern, but the plushness and freshness let you know it's a far more recent investment. This coordinates with the door panels, capering, headliner, and dash to create a terrific uniform feeling inside and out. And if you feel like sharing this classic with family and friends, the upgraded retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning will really keep them happy. The '55 Chevy dash retains the classic look, but now it has some great driver upgrades, like how the classic-style steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column. You have a full set of auxiliary readouts cleanly mounted below the dash, and the column-mounted tach is particularly handy when paired with the Hurst shifter.
Under the hood is a tidy and bright powerplant. The Tri-Fives were the beginning of the small block era, so we love to have that kind of motor here. But this one is a huge increase in displacement with the 400 cubic-inch V8. Plus, it has been upgraded further with performance components like an Edelbrock 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and ceramic-coated heads feeding an H-pipe dual exhaust. There's even an aluminum radiator to help keep this one running cool. You take full advantage of this enhanced V8 power thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, power steering and power brakes w/discs up front deliver an all-around great driving package.
This is a shining and powerful '55 Chevy that has been upgraded to be enjoyed for any time. So if you love driving your icons, call today!
