SHARP TRI-FIVE CHEVY! 283 V8, 3 SPEED MANUAL, POWER FRONT DISC BRAKES

We sell dozens of Tri-5 Chevrolets every year, but few are as honest and affordable as this 1956 Chevrolet 210 sedan. Only recently have 4-door Tri-5s been gaining attention (and it's about time), but they drive just as well as their 2-door counterparts, have the same awesome good looks, and they're a lot more affordable and family friendly. If you think that owning a nicely restored Shoebox Chevy was out of reach, guess again, because this dialed-in Tri-5 is just a simple call away.

Finished in a shade dubbed Root Beer Brown Metallic (an upgrade over the original Inca Silver over Imperial Ivory), this sedan looks so good you almost have to look twice to spot the extra doors on this Chevy. The wonderful 210 detailing feels like it was always destined for a 4-door, with its perpendicular pillars and swooping roofline setting a gorgeous profile for this popular Tri-5 example. It's obvious this sedan has always been well-kept and led an easy life under the supervision of conscientious owners, as the all-original body is nice and straight, the door shut flush, the gaps are good, and the entire car feels very tight despite its nearly eight-decade run in service. The repaint is older but you can ... Please ask for the full description.

SHARP TRI-FIVE CHEVY! 283 V8, 3 SPEED MANUAL, POWER FRONT DISC BRAKES

We sell dozens of Tri-5 Chevrolets every year, but few are as honest and affordable as this 1956 Chevrolet 210 sedan. Only recently have 4-door Tri-5s been gaining attention (and it's about time), but they drive just as well as their 2-door counterparts, have the same awesome good looks, and they're a lot more affordable and family friendly. If you think that owning a nicely restored Shoebox Chevy was out of reach, guess again, because this dialed-in Tri-5 is just a simple call away.

Finished in a shade dubbed Root Beer Brown Metallic (an upgrade over the original Inca Silver over Imperial Ivory), this sedan looks so good you almost have to look twice to spot the extra doors on this Chevy. The wonderful 210 detailing feels like it was always destined for a 4-door, with its perpendicular pillars and swooping roofline setting a gorgeous profile for this popular Tri-5 example. It's obvious this sedan has always been well-kept and led an easy life under the supervision of conscientious owners, as the all-original body is nice and straight, the door shut flush, the gaps are good, and the entire car feels very tight despite its nearly eight-decade run in service. The repaint is older but you can tell it was done right with a color-change that still has a pleasing period look. It's not perfect, with light scratches and a few minor chips to report upon closer examination, but that's all commensurate with an older, driver-quality restoration, and it's hard to argue with this 4-door's curb appeal. Those bright spears along the flanks emphasize the long, low profile of the '56 Chevys, and, of course, the middle-market 210 had plenty of jewelry to make it stand apart. It has not been customized or modified, which is always refreshing with these cars, and they've resisted the urge to over-accessorize the car, which seems to be an epidemic among Tri-Five Chevy owners. All the chrome is nicely finished to match the quality of the paint, the emblems on the hood and deck lid are bright with a light patina, and the stainless side trim was all straightened and buffed when the car was finished years back. Bottom line, this Tri-5 looks great.

The handsome two-tone interior has a great 1950s sensibility and with room for six, this really is the most practical hobby car you can buy. The cloth upholstery is certainly an acquired taste that looks a bit dated in 2021, but it's in good condition following the restoration with only minor signs of use throughout. Matching door panels continue the somewhat septuagenarian theme, as do the carpets, but we have to admit the Root Beer vide is in full effect with the choice of these colors. 4-doors were finished in unison with their 2-door counterparts in '56, and the dash is identical, right down to the twin pods and stylish steering wheel with horn ring. An aftermarket SunPro tachometer was strapped to the column to mind the revs, while a trio of auxiliary units were installed below the dash to help keep a close eye on the motor. Options are scarce but you do get an AM/FM/Cassette deck in the center of the painted dash (thankfully they didn't have to curt anything up to install it), but the best entertainment comes from that enjoyable 3-speed manual transmission in the floor that practically taunts us to get in and cycle through the gears. The rear bench continues the ugly-suit theme but is also in great shape, while out back the cavernous trunk was finished with black carpets and houses a full-size spare tire and jack set.

The 283 cubic inch V8 under the hood has been beefed up a bit for modern times, and it's dressed for show with lots of chrome and shiny bits. Obviously, there are several components that aren't 'correct' for the year, including the modern alternator and power brake system, but that's not what this car is trying to be. Chrome Chevrolet-scripted valve covers and a Bowtie mini chrome air cleaner provide most of the flash, although the bright yellow spark plug wires certainly yearn for attention as well, and the Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor was mounted atop a high-rise plate for a performance look. Stock-style exhaust manifolds dump into a bubbly dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers, so it sounds suitably racy up and down the throttle. A 3-speed manual transmission is a nice addition for 'car guys/gals' that love to drive and bang through gears, and it certainly takes advantage of the V8 under the hood. Power front disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors all work together to help this 210 handle the rigors of the modern road, while the heavy-duty 10-bolt rear end keeps the car planted. The chassis is solid and in good order, although not detailed for show, and it has a very comfortable ride complements of 235/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A white-letter radials wrapped around Cragar S/S polished wheels.

With all the emphasis on performance these days, it's kind of nice to see a car like this that doesn't go overboard with the modifications and still feels like a trip to the past. And with a price point like this, it won't last long. Call today!
