Any Tri-Five Chevy is a cool carand#44; but some are bigger shining stars amongst the standouts. This 1955 Chevrolet 210 coupe is in that rarefied category with mirror black paintand#44; a custom interior with A/Cand#44; and a fuel-injected Blueprint crate motor.
Black is one of those colors that always make you take notice. Like a finely tailored suit over a classic bodyand#44; people cant help but stare. So yesand#44; this car is like Clark Gable put to sheetmetaland#44; but to get this way takes a lot of investment. The body needs to be the straightest possibleand#44; because the investment in the professional clearcoat creates a mirror-like shine that no imperfection can hide from. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintainedand#44; so its completeand#44; and rivals the paint for shine. 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 rally-style chrome units with bow tie spinners. So this Chevy has an aggressive appearanceand#44; and that wont be the last time you spot an interesting upgrade.
Insideand#44; the black and blue appearance does a great job of coordinating with the exteriorand#44; while adding in some color. The coupe shows us why the 55s are so appealingand#44; with plenty of original-style components like the way the restored factory-correct vinyl seats have a pleated pattern that almost looks like a custom tuck-n-roll. These match the door panelsand#44; carpetingand#44; headlinerand#44; and dash for a great uniform appearance. And speaking of the dashand#44; we all love the dual cowl appearance that was shared with the Corvette. But the real attraction to this Chevy is in all of the custom touches. Theres a center console with cup holders. This also houses an aftermarket AM/FM/CD head unit with an LCD readout that control features like the navigation systemand#44; Bluetoothand#44; and a Kicker subwoofer stereo system. And while the ice-cold air conditioning is there to keep everyone happyand#44; this is truly a coupe built for the driver. Thats why you get a comfortable custom steering wheel on a tilt columnand#44; and a cool custom set of auxiliary gauges. It tells you theres something special under the hood even before you hear the roar of the dual exhaust.
Part of what makes this coupe a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. Thats must be why there has been so much invested in giving the engine bay a show-worthy shine. The only optional eight-cylinder in this inaugural year was the 265 cubic-inch motorand#44; and so this keeps the original small block spiritand#44; but has been nicely upgraded to be very desireable. Its a 355 cubic-inch Blueprint performance crate motor. It includes go-fast goodies like Spectre air grabberand#44; Edelbrock intakeand#44; headersand#44; and an X-pipe dual exhaust. Plusand#44; this is a fuel-injected V8 with EZ EFI by FAST that has an adjustable controller in the glovebox so you get to dial in your perfect performance. The motor is mated to a highway friendly 700r4 four-speed automatic transmission with a shift kit that feeds the stout 12-bolt rear end. More than just a pure performance machineand#44; the upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes and power steering make this a great anytime cruiser.
Youre looking at a 55 Chevy thats powerful enough to outrun many modern machinesand#44; and its comfortable enough for the morning commute. Its such a thoroughand#44; qualityand#44; and clean build (have you checked out the undercharge photos?!) that you know this is a singular opportunity at something very special. Call today!!
