You were drawn to this 1953 Chevrolet 210 for the same reason that we were: its factory-correct appearance, both inside and out. But what you might not expect are all the great driving upgrades this rare restomod offers - a powerful small block V8 with performance upgrades and power steering, making it an impressive cruiser at an attainable price.
From the moment you lay eyes on this one you can tell it's an interesting custom build. But before we dive into the investments that make it .....
quite unique, let's remember why this is such a great classic to begin with. Detroit was happy to awaken after WWII with plenty of stylized cars. This meant providing new ideas with interesting curvaceous bodies. And of course, there was chrome, too. On this 210 model brightwork surrounds every piece of glass, runs the full length of the side, outlines the lower rear fender, covers both bumpers, surrounds every exterior light, and gives the car a shiny toothy grille. All of this makes this classic so distinctive today, and it's highlighted exceptionally well thanks to the modern application of the factory-correct saddle and brown two-tone paint. There's a nice metallic to the finish, and the American Racing wheels add a more modern custom touch to this classic silhouette, too. And that's exactly how to view this classic - the perfect blend of vintage and new worlds.
Inside, there's a pleasing combination of restored and original parts, providing the interior with a very comfortable and authentic feel. The two-tone light tan-brown cloth bench seats match the dash and door panels and exhibit very little wear, while the chrome accents continue to elevate the classic color combination. But you can also tell this one is upgraded correctly. You have an AM/FM stereo, tilt steering column, and upgraded gauges for a better driver. There's even an upgraded A/C system that will likely just need a recharge to blow cold again.
Under the hood is a nice upgrade to a 350 cubic-inch small block with Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And you get to hear the growl of the V8 better with the long tube headers feeding the Flowmaster dual exhaust. You're going to love taking this classic out on the road thanks to enhancements like the upgraded Mustang II front end and the traction bars on the rear. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make for a great anywhere/anytime cruiser.
This is a total package classic that's turn-key ready for whatever fun you have planned this weekend. So, you know something this special will be leaving us quickly. Call today!!!
