NICELY DONE 55 CHEVY, 350CI, 700R4 TRANS, LOTS OF EXTRAS, SWEET CUSTOM INTERIOR
How easy is it to own a eyeball-grabbing hot rod? Buy this 1955 Chevrolet 210 2-door post sedan! Built in the late-90s and with a long list of upgrades on its resume, it's an impressive street machine that's clearly built to cruise. Reliable, well-sorted, and simply gorgeous, this is the car they're talking about when they say you couldn't possibly duplicate it for the price.
With a history like this one, you already know it's a nice car. It's also vivid in bright blue, which means they had to spend a ton of time on it, making sure everything was flat and straight, that panels lined up just right, and all the other little things that go into making a show car. No short cuts, no botched workmanship, this car has already been scrutinized and found worthy, so it's ready to rock with a new owner. Sure, it's been driven a bit, but that does nothing to diminish the quality of the work and it seems to defy the years; I mean, just look at the reflections in the quarter panels! All the chrome and trim, and yes, there's quite a bit of it, was also fully restored and all of it remains in place, from the beautiful front bumper with rare accessory grille guard to the 1-piece "California" rear bumper.
The two-tone leather interior has a wonderful, inviting look. Yes, it's beautifully stitched and doesn't go to any extremes to make a point, but the quality materials with a bit of age on them seem to beckon you to climb inside. For example, the custom front seat looks like your favorite easy chair, a few creases here and there but it's like that because there's no place you'd rather sit. The original dash sparkles with a fresh billet insert running its width and a full set of handsome gauges from Classic Instruments. A chrome tilt column and custom LaCarrera steering wheel are the most obvious mods, but there's also A/C, a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system, and a sophisticated anti-theft system. Open the trunk and you'll find a matching storage compartment, with a full array of stereo equipment proudly on display and expertly installed.
You already know this car is a runner, and thanks to the 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 under the hood, it should continue to do so for years to come. Sure, there's a ton of chrome and polished aluminum under the hood, but the hardware is first rate. Upgrades include a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake manifold, serpentine belt drive system, R134a refrigerant for the A/C system, and a big aluminum radiator with electric cooling fans. It's backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission so it just burbles along on the highway without taking the edge off acceleration. Modern shocks, power disc brakes, and a rumbling dual exhaust provide a thrilling driving experience, and with those shiny Eagle Alloy wheels and 245/45/17 BFGoodrich T/A radials, it definitely has the right look.
A very handsome and beautifully built Bel Air that is idea for cruise nights and the Long Haul Gang on next year's Power Tour, this '55 easily demonstrates how to do it right. Call today!
