210 Handyman Wagon
SOLID STRAIGHT, FACTORY COLORS, BLUE FLAME 6, CLASSIC AMERICANA, KIN OF NOMAD
This 1955 Chevrolet 210 Handyman Wagon is a rare kin to the legendary Nomad, but when you show up at the car shows with it, people instantly recognize this two-door Chevy has a personality all of its own.
The Navajo Tan paintwork with India Ivory top represents the 1950s in a very elegant way. This is particularly impressive on this Chevy because it was resprayed this factory original color a few years ago, which means a wise owner resisted going with a hot rod red or black. In fact, this factory-fresh appearance is exactly how to view this two-door wagon. It has all the great aircraft-inspired brightwork on the hood and running down the body. And of course there's no mistaking the stylized chrome bumpers at both ends. All of this Bel Air style, even the grille, was part of the midgrade 210 package, and this one looks great without losing the spirit that makes it a 60-year-old classic. Even those great hubcaps with Chevy bow-ties around the parameter were available on the 210 line.
The beautiful two-tone arrangement continues inside. The dual colors seem to wraparound and intertwine elegantly on the seats, dash, doors, and it even continues all the way behind the rear seats. This 210 has the great dual cowl dashboard and chrome ring steering wheel, so while this might be a "Handyman" special, there are plenty of style touches. Plus, all components work as they should, right down to the AM radio. But we know you look at this and think about all the car show potential, so take notice of the split rear hatch that also makes this your perfect tailgate partying friend.
The 235 cubic-inch inline-six is smooth and torquey, and it was a mainstay of Chevrolet vehicles for decades. The Blue Flame six motor is painted perfectly to be the centerpiece in this engine bay. It's refreshing to see the original style motor still in one of these iconic Chevy bodies. This particular one has been well looked after, and it moves this wagon quite nicely, thanks to a few thoughtful pieces. First, this engine breathes easier thanks to an upgrade to a Weber carburetor. Plus, the three-on-the-tree manual transmission gives great power control, and the standard 4.11 rear end ratio means it can get up from a standstill with ease.
This is an honest and authentic classic two-door wagon. It has the spirit of the Nomad, the ethics of a Handyman, and the appearance of an American icon. Don't wait...call today!!
