This restored 1956 Chevrolet 210 Wagon carries all the iconic lines of its much more common (and expensive) coupe brothers. And they also upgraded it with all the right pieces, including more V8 power, four-on-the-floor, four-wheel disc brakes, and an A/C interior. So dig into the details on an all-around distinctive classic.
Red and white two-tone might have been available from the factory in '56, but it never looked as good as this. The maroon has a deep metallic element that instantly announces someone invested nicely in this Chevy. And the ivory has the bright shine that can only come from a more modern application. It's part of a very smoother total package that expertly removed badging front and rear. Plus, the Ridler wheels staggered 18/20 inches front/rear adds to this standout modern appearance. But even with all these updates an icon like the '56 Chevy never loses its vintage appeal. The 1956 grille is arguably the best of the tri-fives, as it merges the cleanliness of the previous year with the full-width presentation that continued into '57. Plus, this one retains all the great aircraft-inspired brightwork running the full length of the body. The new headlights have a clean look, and even the bumpers were re-chromed for extra flair.
One look inside and you're instantly reminded of the large investment in this custom build. The front buckets are a new modern instillation that takes advantage of everything from modern bolstering to a cup holder center console. The result is true all-day comfort. The red and gray custom presentation seen here is repeated on the back seats, side panels, and even the tailgate for a full uniform presentation. And speaking of the rear hatch, that's you're gateway to the large storage area that makes this classic versatile for everything from a showcase area to the ultimate tailgating friend. This spacious and plush interior also has great comfort upgrades like an AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. So it's a great place to share with family and friends. But you don't need any of them to have a good time, because the driver always has priority. You instantly feel this Chevy's performance atmosphere the moment you slip behind the red and chrome steering wheel and grab the Hurst shifter.
This dark engine bay is purposely designed to funnel all your attention to the 350 cubic-inch V8. And we just love how the valve covers had their ridges painted to match the bold Chevy orange block. More than just look great, this V8 has the best upgrades, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Plus, you have great supporting components like the MSD ignition, Optima battery, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this running cool even in traffic. This V8 fires up readily and you have complete control over the power with four-speed manual transmission. Plus, there's power steering, modern performance tires, and upgraded Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes to really keep this classic feeling confident on the road.
We all love a good grocery-getter that's been customized for performance and appearance. After all, it's where your practical head meets your enthusiast heart. So this all-around icon is ready now for the first person to grab it. Call today!!!
