NICE CAR, 350 V8, 4-SPEED, R134 AC, FRONT DISCS, UPDATED INTERIOR, PRICED RIGHT!
This 1956 Chevrolet 210 2-door has the look that has been in style for more than five decades. With just a few subtle upgrades, the car's entire personality changes, resulting in a slick street rod that can be driven anywhere and looks great doing it.
The colors aren't original, but the pattern is, and no matter what you choose, that always works. The metallic blue and white paint job was done in the early 2000s, but thanks to excellent care ever since, it still manages to draw appreciative glances from the crowds at car shows and on the street. Of course, a lot of that is surely due to the fact that the '56 Chevy is a great-looking car all by itself, but the metallic blue paint gives it a dignified look that belies the performance waiting underneath. Nice bodywork and good gaps suggest that good money was spent to make it look this way, and aside from a few signs of use, it seems to defy the years. Lots of bright chrome helps with the look and even though the design was slightly different on the 210 models, the '56s still had the coolest 2-tone pattern of all time. 1-piece California-style bumpers help with the smoothie look, and all the stainless trim was polished up when the car was built. Nothing was shaved or deleted, so it has a traditional look; only the stance and rolling stock give it away.
It's a little more updated inside, where custom cloth upholstery is far more comfortable than the original vinyl and has a distinctly '50s look that seems right. Matching door panels continue the button-tufted theme and you'll notice cool details and interesting patterns throughout. The factory instrument panel was retained, and the speedometer and auxiliary gauges show crisp white markings on a black background along with a strip of bright trim that stretches from side to side. Aftermarket air conditioning was added to make this a very comfortable cruiser, with vents neatly stashed under the lower dash and hidden controls that keep the stock look. A manual transmission sticking out of the transmission tunnel gives it a more hard-core race look, but combined with the woodgrained steering wheel, it seems like it has borrowed some Corvette DNA. An AM/FM/cassette radio slotted neatly into the original hole in the dash and powers speakers built into the rear quarter panels. Open the trunk and you'll find a correct rubber mat and a rear-mounted battery that frees up some room in the engine bay.
In that engine bay you'll find a 350 cubic inch V8 that has a no-nonsense look to it. Cast aluminum valve covers, an Edelbrock intake manifold, and a Holley Demon carburetor are the obvious upgrades, although there's also a modern alternator and a dual reservoir master cylinder. The bright Chevy Orange paint on the block looks very fresh and recent work includes belts, hoses, and tune-up components so it's ready to enjoy without worries. Backed by a 4-speed manual and the original rear end, it's a lot of fun to drive and with glasspack-style mufflers, you'll be blipping the throttle every time you pass under a bridge. Everything's undercoated so it's quiet and comfortable inside and it sits right on Torque Thrust wheels and 245/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Hard to go wrong with a shoebox Chevy and cars like this will never go out of style. Fast, comfortable, and always stylish, this cool 210 is the car you've been waiting for. Call today!
