This 1955 Chevrolet 210 is all about the awesome upgrades. That means smooth paint, a custom leather interior, cold-blowing A/C, four-wheel disc brakes, an upgraded suspension on a stronger frame, and an overdrive transmission. And to make it a true restomod, it's all powered by a modern fuel-injected LS1 V8.
The glossy black paint immediately sets the car apart. The sunlight rolls off the well-fitting panels with an almost uninterrupted style, thanks to most trim being deleted. We're .....
told the paint was done around 2012, but the real indicator is that it's also claimed that the low odometer is the total mileage since completing its restoration. So it's sleek, clean, and only shows minimal signs of responsible enjoyment. You can tell they took extra time with this iconic Tri-Five just by the quality in the details, like the even gaps, doors that shut solid, pliable weather-stripping, and clean glass. And while some of the brightwork was deleted, it means you appreciate the best pieces, like the wide grille, smooth single-piece bumpers, and rocket-like side trim that zooms up the back half of the car. And there are also beautiful details like the clear tri-bar headlights and the clean look of the rear, thanks to the hideaway tag. Plus, with aggressive touches like the large dual exhaust tips and 17-inch Foose wheels, everyone knows they're in for something special.
More thoughtfulness of the build is seen when you open the door. It starts with the modern bucket seats in front. These have better bolstering than anything from the 1950s for superior comfort, and they're even finished in supple leather. The rear seats have bucket-like individuality, too, thanks to the full-length center console. The tan color on the upholstery is also shared on custom door panels, plush carpeting, headliner, trunk, and even the center console. Even a black streak runs from the dash and down through the doors for a thoughtful touch of color coordination with the exterior. A thoughtful restoration also meant all the best upgrades were nicely integrated. This includes power windows, cup holders, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The stereo is also upgraded to an AM/FM/CD head unit with aux input, Bluetooth, and a speaker system featuring a Kicker subwoofer system in the custom trunk. The sports steering wheel, tilt column, and crisp Classic Instrument gauges make for a proper driver's machine.
The engine bay is ready for primetime, and that's a good thing because this Tri-Five has something special. This was the car that helped launch the small block era at Chevy, and while its dominance lasted over 40 years, the 5.7-liter LS1 took up the baron to create a new generation of Chevy performance. So it makes for some terrific history and power to have the LS1 upgrade neatly integrated into this 210 with its smooth black inner walls, polished components, tucked wires, and overall tidy style. And more than just looking good, this was built with the right cruiser upgrades, like a Griffin aluminum radiator, serpentine belt system, and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers. The motor is mated to a 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission that's great for performance kick-downs or all-day overdrive highway cruising. And the undercarriage photos not only give you a clean look of a comprehensive restoration, but also it shows upgrades like the boxed frame and tubular front control arms. Add in power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and modern ZR-Rated sports tires, and you'll love showing off this restomod EVERYWHERE.
Complete with restoration photos, this is the classic '55 Chevy that has an extraordinary level of style, power, and even some practicality. So no matter if your goal is to do the Power Tour in comfort or have the coolest commuter, this solid custom build is ready for everything. All it needs is you. Call now!
