This 1957 Chevrolet 210 has a flame-kissed style that lets you know there's a hot V8 under the hood. But as you check out the full package with power windows, air conditioning, an overdrive transmission, and even a painted frame, you can see this custom street machine was made to be an impressive total cruiser.
The flames are what everyone sees first. It starts as yellow-hot fire and transforms into a beautiful red as it consumes the hood and fenders. And the full fire is outlined in .....
white pinstriping to keep it crisp. The rest of the body has glossy black that loves to shine. But even without the flames, this one is a terrific street machine. You can see it in the details like the wide dual exhaust tips, dual aerials, and 15-inch polished American Racing wheels with a larger rear set for an aggressive stance. Plus, the body panels are well aligned, the doors close with authority, and the chrome king bumpers shine brilliantly to make for an all-around attractive classic. They even added the Bel Air style bright insert in the tailfin for an iconic touch. It all makes for an impressive '57 Chevy, and there's just the right amount of maturity to this one that it's a stunner that you can still drive.
The two-tone red and black go well with the color theme of the exterior. The fundamentals like carpeting, door panels, and dash have a quality look and feel. It's an impressive vintage setup, right down to the two rows of bench seats with classic textured fabric inserts. And to make sure you can enjoy a vintage interior in modern times, you have well-integrated upgrades. It includes a lower console for the AM/FM/cassette stereo, amplified speakers, power windows, and R134a air conditioning. And of course, this was also upgraded to be a driver's machine. That's why you have the grippy banjo-style sports steering wheel, a Lokar floor shifter, an auxiliary gauge trio under the dash, and a large Sun tach on top of the dash.
More of the cool flames await you under the hood with the etched air topper and matching valve covers adding flair to the enhanced V8 power. We're told this is a 383 stroker V8 motor, and it certainly feels like a powerful setup. It also includes nice driving upgrades like a Weber four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke, a Weiand intake, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. It makes for a stout V8 that runs confidently, and it produces a subtly sweet rumble out of the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. When you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going to spot a clean presentation of the red painted frame. Plus, with power steering, wide modern tires, front disc brakes, and an upgraded four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, this is the ideal balance of big power and cruiser ease.
