INCREDIBLE VALUE, NICE BODY & PAINT, STRONG 350 V8, PS, FRONT DISCS, DRIVES GR8!
You already want this 1955 Chevrolet 210 coupe because it's a cherry red icon at a nice price. So when you see that it has great extra features like enhanced V8 power and an overdrive transmission, you'll discover it's your perfect classic cruiser.
The bold Matador Red is one of those colors that always make you take notice – people can't help but stare. But to get to this level takes a lot of investment. The body needs to be the straightest possible, because the modern and professional application of the clearcoat shine needs to evenly roll off every panel. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained, so it's complete and rivals the paint for shine. And once again, excellent sheetmetal means the upgraded Bel Air trim can move across panels with an uninterrupted line. This is the kind of full package that returns the coupe to the day it left the dealer in 1955... except they never had wheels as cool as those chrome wire wheels with bow tie center caps. So this Chevy has a bright and aggressive appearance, and that won't be the last time you spot an interesting upgrade.
Inside, the exterior red returns as an accent to the aggressive and black interior. The seats feel fresh from investment, and these match the door panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash for a great uniform appearance. And speaking of the dash, we all love the dual cowl appearance that was shared with the Corvette. And if you look closely, the classic-style radio is really a modern AM/FM digital tuner. But the best upgrades inside are to remind you this is a driver's machine. The steering wheel was upgraded to the dual spoke unit from a later Bel Air, and this gives you an unobstructed view of the original speedometer and added tachometer. This and the auxiliary gauge trio are nice hints at something special under the hood.
Part of what makes this coupe a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. The only optional eight-cylinder in this inaugural year was the 265 cubic-inch motor, and so this keeps the original small block spirit, but has been nicely upgraded to the hardy and powerful 350ci unit. Not only is the displacement an upgrade from stock, but also there are plenty of go-fast goodies added. This includes an aggressive cam profile, B&M dual air grabber, performance intake, Quick Fuel four-barrel Slayer carburetor, and long tube headers that feed a glasspack-style dual exhaust. So not only does this one fire up easily, but it growls with the kind of confidence that makes other cars scared. More than just a pure performance machine, this was built to be an excellent cruiser. That's why you have great driving features like the 700r4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, there's an aluminum radiator to keep the mean V8 running cool. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, you you'll be ready to easily take this '55 coupe near or far.
You're looking at a '55 Chevy that's powerful enough to outrun many modern machines, and it's comfortable enough for the morning commute. It's such a thorough, quality, and clean build that you know this is a singular opportunity at something very special. Call today!!!
