Streetside Classics - Nashville

An iconic design and V8 power meet a truly practical size. So this 1955 Chevrolet 210 Wagon is the kind of desirable classic that's both distinctive and useful.
This one gets the look right to be instantly attractive. After all, the front of the 1955 Chevy is one of the most recognizable symbols around, and the two-tone red and white is as all-American as a Coca-Cola bottle. All that appeal is part of the first impression. But there's more here the deeper you dig. For example, this has the iconic grille and hood ornament that announce it's a '55 Chevy, but the next biggest piece of brightwork are American Racing Torq Thrust wheels in a modern 17-inch size. In fact, the rest of the body goes much more modern with deleted trim and painted bumpers. So when you arrive, this wagon has the unmistakable look of a classic while also remaining unique compared to any others.
The well-integrated modernization continues inside. After all, you get a clean black interior, but those front buckets have the kind of comfortable bolstering you couldn't get in the 1950s. Plus, both rows are finished in a supple leather. This is built to be a driver with a comfortable fold-down center console up front, cup holders, and an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette that fits into the dash's classic knob style radio housing. And speaking of the dash, you have the irresistibly attractive bright dual-cowl look that was shared with the Corvette of the time. The driving experience is upgraded with a sports steering wheel, full gauge package upgrade, and the controller for the Gear Vendors overdrive unit. If this is starting to seem like a practical classic, don't forget about the big cargo room in the back. And no matter if you use this for car shows or ball games, the two-piece rear is ideal for tailgating.
The '55 Chevy launched the legendary small block, so we love to see a version of it updated for the best power. This 350 cubic-inch V8 has a well-done Edelbrock upgrade kit with the four-barrel carburetor, Performer intake, and ribbed valve covers. Plus, headers add performance while feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. It gives this plenty of get-up-and-go. And to make sure you can enjoy it to the fullest are nice driving features like power brakes w/discs up front and modern sport tires. And the three-speed automatic transmission with Gear Vendors overdrive make it exceptionally versatile.
This is a cool and practical take on a true American classic. So you know you don't want to let this unique Chevy slip away. Call today!!!
