This is a 1954 Chevy 210 Hot Rod that demands attention. If you are looking for a strong running, extremely well built ride that is finished and ready drive Chevy, this is the one.

This is a hot rod with much modification. Hand-rubbed, gleaming red paint, unbelievably gorgeous pleated white upholstery and the overall very high level of quality and craftsmanship of this car makes this one of the nicest 1954 Chevys you will ever see. Only the best components have been used throughout and are too numberous to name. Our owner wishes to tip his hat to Darrell " Smitty" Smith of Washington who was an integral part of the rebuilding of this fine old Chevrolet.

The gorgeous deep crimson coating was applied prior to our owner buying the car and you will have to look hard to find any imperfections. The panels are perfectly shaped and straight with all of the chrome trim and brightwork in place. American racing wheels offset the red body and white top perfectly. The standard bumper up front comes with only 5 “teeth“on the grill but our ‘54 Chevy has 15. The badges, emblems and all of the trim are original, straight, blemish free. The curves and swooping metal sculpture that make up the exterior are highlighted by the flawless paint job. All glass is in excellent condition. All original taillight and headlights are in place and working.

The centerpiece of the interior is the extensive white vinyl pleated upholstery and trim. Simply stunning. The white color offsets the same beautiful red paint used on the exterior as can be seen on the dash. Impeccable custom work incorporating the original dash and speedo transitioning flawlessly to a series of new gauges and tastefully sized tachometer. All door and locks work well and, the door handles and other hardware looks freshly polished.

The work was extensive beginning with swapping the straight 6 for a small block Chevy 350 CID V8. Highlights include 4-bolt main bearing caps, Edelbrock 4 barrel carb and aluminum intake manifold, solid lifters, an RV-type cam for tons of torque, HEI ignition, billet aluminum front bracketing, aluminum radiator cooled with electric fans. All result in a very strong mouse power plant producing about 325 Horsepower. The motor is backed by a Turbo 350 automatic transmission, and ends with a GM Corp 10 bolt differential. Mustang II spring assembly including Heidts crossmember, rack and pinion steering and disc brakes combined to round out the tight, true front end. Lowering spindles were incorporated, dropping the front end giving it “Stance”. Power steering and brakes, highly prized Vintage Air and Heat along with a high torque starter finish the detailed and refined modifications.

Our independent inspector went over the car in detail. Fitment, fluids, wear levels, proper operation and other factors all contribute to an excellent report filed on the condition of the car. Some comments from the inspector were “Drives excellent and smooth, mild but peppy engine, great handling, smooth shifting”...and more. A favorable report on all fronts.

The fans of the ‘54 Chevy will be very pleased to see an example of the car so tremendously articulated as the vehicle you see here. You will not see another example like this anytime soon and with less than 5000 miles driven on the car since all of the major work it will be much more fun and no elbow grease is needed.
