This 1954 Chevrolet 210 is affordable fun in the kind of vintage car that's disappearing from the classic car scene. It's the kind of two-door sedan that just seems perfect for everything from cars & coffee to ice cream runs, because cruising in this one feels like you're driving with more purpose than everyone else out there.
This car has a terrific sense of vintage style. After all, a two-tone was the staple of 1950s driving. And the blue and white seen here is distinctive without taking away from the vintage feeling. Plus, the blue has a hint of silver that goes well with all that brightwork. On this 210 model, chrome surrounds every piece of glass, runs the full length of the side, outlines the lower rear fender, covers both bumpers, surrounds every exterior light, and gives the car a shiny toothy grille. Nothing in this presentation is overly done to make you nervous about driving it on a whim. And that's the real spirit behind a classic like the Chevy 210, it can still take everyone in comfort.
Just like the exterior wants to keep the vintage style while also showing the right investments. The seats have been reupholstered in a comfortable cloth and seatbelts were added. Plus, the door panels, headliner, and carpeting are excellent. So it's quite an inviting atmosphere. It keeps a true classic cruiser attitude with the bright dash, artful steering wheel, and simple stalks on the steering column: one for the turn signal and the other to shift the manual transmission.
Open up the hood and the classic honesty of this Chevy continues. Chevrolet only had one engine choice this year to rely on for everything from the Corvette to its pickup trucks. The 235 cubic-inch Blue Flame six-cylinder motor provides reliable power and good torque to keep the chrome machines cruising down the road. We're told this was rebuilt later in life, and the steadfast feeling the motor has today reaffirms a good history. For those who want to get the most out of this engine, the three-speed manual transmission is the best choice to have, and there's just a real retro-cool feeling about operating the three-on-the-tree column shifter (it also impresses those who have never seen this classic feature before.) And while this is the kind of classic that wants you to feel the road, a good ride and modern cruising tires are what really drive home the feeling of a car you can enjoy.
Complete with maintenance records, here's an honest and carefully enjoyed sedan that represents true 1950s motoring. Are you ready to write the next chapter in its history? Call today!!!
