Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1955

Quality craftsmanship leaves plenty of clues and this 1955 Chevrolet 210 is packed to the brim with them. Configured with both an understated appearance and plenty of power at the hands of a very experienced builder, it's in top form in all respects and needs absolutely nothing for you to jump behind the wheel and get maximum enjoyment out of it. Should you wish to make an impact on the car show circuit, that's certainly an option - this outstanding... Chevy is just hair's breadth away from being fully prepared for that, as well. The sterling exterior on this Chevy is the first of several indications that it was conceived with a definite purpose in mind - maximize curb appeal not through a collection of visual tricks, but rather through tasteful aesthetic decisions and exactingly precise workmanship. The Ruby Red metallic shade is a definite winner - it's tasteful yet very impactful and really draws you in for a closer look. Meticulously applied, it's already got a deep, consistent shine and a detailing session at the hands of a skilled pro will take it to an undisputed show quality level. The Chevys of this era carried quite a collection of chrome and this specimen wears them well - both the signature egg crate grille and beefy front bumper are looking their best and, as you take a lap around the car, you'll see that the side and window trim are in matching condition. The badging on display here is equally strong - even the coloring of the hood and decklid emblems seems unusually vivid. Inside the doors, the custom tan interior is very well-configured and as fresh as can be. Starting with the plushly padded bench seats lifted from a '70 Cadillac, every component inside is in excellent condition. The attention to detail here is really impressive - the colored accents on the door panels line up very nicely with those on the kick panels, the glove box door is nice and flush in its closed position and all control knobs and switches are very clean and well aligned. The functionality is there, too - there'll be no tweaks needed to climb behind the wheel and enjoy this classic in all its splendor. The dash area beyond the mint condition factory-style steering wheel is a showstopper itself, sporting spotless trim that spans the width of the interior, as well as gauges that all work as intended inside their fan shaped instrument cluster. An AM/FM/CD player has been seamlessly fitted into the center of the dash to provide your audio soundtrack while out on the road, and the underdash air conditioning system is operating in top form. You'll have plenty of dependable power at your disposal in the form of the 350 cubic inch V8 standing by under the hood. It's been equipped with a 4-barrel carb underneath an open-element air cleaner, as well as a mild performance cam to up its output without throwing too much lope into the mix and has been dressed up with a great assortment of chrome components. The powerplant teams with a smooth shifting TH400 transmission, while a rugged Dutchman Motorsports posi-traction rear end completes the drivetrain. A sizable aluminum radiator has also been added up front to keep driving temperatures under control. Power steering makes this vintage Chevy an easy navigator, while power brakes that include discs up front bring its set of 15" wheels with spinner-type centers and featuring BF Goodrich T/A Radials to dependable stops. This 1955 Chevrolet 210 affords the chance to get behind the wheel of a skillfully built timeless classic with outstanding curb appeal and a tasteful, high quality interior. Call today!
