Any Tri-Five Chevy is a cool car, but some are shining stars amongst the standouts. This 1955 Chevrolet 210 Del Ray post coupe is in that rarefied category with a cool factory-correct two-tone exterior, the Del Ray special interior with A/C, and a performance-built small block backed by a manual gearbox. There was money invested in keeping this looking like a classic and adding the right upgrades, and all of it was well spent.

This is the first year for the iconic shoebox Chevys, so it's important to get all the details right. That's why this Del Ray Club Coupe has its factory-correct red and white two-tone. Of course, you could never get this kind of luster and shine in '55, and so what is grabbing your attention now is a full professional respray that takes advantage of vivid modern cleracoats. But it takes more than just great paint to be a cut-above classic. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors, and the panels line up so that the side trim continues uninterrupted. But the longer you look at this one, you realize it's much more than just a great-looking vintage coupe. It has aggressive touches like the large dual exhaust tips and American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with a 17/18-inch front/rear for an intimidating stance.

The 1011A on the cowl tag means this is a correct Del Ray model that comes with an upgraded color-coordinated interior package. Thus, part of the evidence of this detail-oriented coupe is that the unique black and white square pattern on the seats nicely match the shades on the dashboard, door panels, and steering wheel. Aside from the color coordination, these Chevys have a great looking interior that includes the dual-cowl style dash that resembles the Corvettes of the era. And this one has extra sports car aggression with the auxiliary AutoMeter gauges and Hurst shifter on the floor. But more than just treats for the driver, this Del Ray has been upgraded so all your passengers will be happy, too. That's why there is an AM/FM/XM stereo hidden in the glovebox with an auxiliary input for the most modern music players. There's even ice-cold air conditioning.

Part of what makes this coupe a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. That's 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 motor, and so this keeps the original small block spirit, but has a huge upgrade to a 350 motor. More than just displacement, it has been performance-built with a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, aluminum radiator, and long tube headers. So this slick coupe has some serious pulling power, and the dual exhaust has the rumble to let the world know it. But power is nothing without control. That's why you can harness it fully with the Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission. Plus, handling is exceptional thanks to anti-sway bars front and rear, an upgraded A-arm front suspension, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of Nexen performance tires. Keep looking at the details, and you will soon realize this is more than just a rocket ride. With features like power steering and cruise control, it's also great for the long haul.

Starting to get the picture on this one? A/C, cruise control, and an upgraded suspension wrapped around an iconic body that's powered by an enhanced V8 heart. This is everything you want in a classic. It even has documentation such as the owner's manual, maintenance records, and the original dealer invoice from 1955. A special car like this doesn't come around very often. Call today or regret it tomorrow!
