Flashy muscle cars are fun, and crazy customs are nice, but there's really nothing cooler than well-done '50s Americana. Comfortable, polished and acutely detailed, classic Chevrolets just ooze style. And this striking Chevy 210 is a carefully restored stunner that mixes 383 cubic inches of Chevrolet small block with a professional grade driveline and tasteful leather upholstery. If you're looking for a first-class classic that's road ready, show-ready and just plain fun, here's the perfect way to enjoy the hobby!
Delightfully vintage and decidedly fresh, this slick 210 wears a vivid combination of blue and white 2-stage that has no problem standing out on a crowded show field! That high-quality pigment adorns a solid profile that was massaged in to shape during comprehensive restoration completed in late 2009. And today, this Chevy rolls as one fantastic tri-five that creates a one-car parade everywhere it goes! At the front of the car's stylish post body, a smoothed bumper founds a polished grille between modern headlights and clear parking lamps. Above that grille, a familiar jetbird shades a colorful header crest opposite smoked glass that wraps polished stainless around mirrored wipers. Speaking of mirrors, the car's short speculums reflect polished speed spears and factory door handles between classy “Chevrolet” scripts and an optional fuel door nail guard. And at the back of the car, a second smoothed bumper frames bright taillights, polished Chevy emblems and a second colorful crest.
Pop the hood and you'll find a hot, 383 cubic inch Chevrolet small block that's powerful, reliable and ready to roll! Revs are created when a tasteful Chevrolet air cleaner, complete with a cool Chevrolet spinner, drops wind in to a coated Demon carburetor. That carb, framed by a coated regulator, a Marshall pressure gauge and a CSR adjustable throttle cable bracket, feeds a polished Edelbrock intake. At the perimeter of that intake, polished center-bolt valve covers hang polished Chevrolet breathers over lightweight GM Performance Parts heads. Behind those breathers, a fresh MSD distributor shoots spark through loomed Taylor plug wires. At the front of those color-keyed cables, Billet Specialties Tru Trac components spin polished pulleys in front of a polished alternator, a polished AC compressor and an aluminum water pump. At the sides of those ancillaries, ceramic-coated, long-tube headers create aggressive exhaust notes. And in front of those tubes, a polished core support splits the difference between a polished radiator, a polished expansion tank and big SPAL puller fans. Despite being a retrofitted piece, the body-matched mill looks right at home in this Chevy's massaged engine compartment. And details, like braided fluid lines, trick dipsticks and a polished thermostat housing mix first-rate looks with first-rate functionality.
Park this 210 on a lift and you'll find a sturdy factory chassis that's been carefully fitted with choice upgrades. Behind the 383, a tough Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed, propped on a modern crossmember, hangs a polished flywheel cover in front of a narrowed 9-inch axle. That axle pushes a blue-tinged 4-bar suspension, which hides QA-1 adjustable coil-overs under slick mini tubs. Opposite that suspension, an upgraded front-half centers rack-and-pinion steering behind a blue sway bar, blue control arms and two more QA-1 coil-overs. Stops come courtesy of a chrome master cylinder, which squeezes a familiar combination of Wilwood and GM calipers around four vented rotors. Spent gases float from the aforementioned headers in to 2.5-inch pipes and throaty Flowmaster mufflers. Everything rolls on polished Billet Specialties blades, which spin 165/80R15 Classic All Season radials in front of 315/60R15 Mickey Thompson ET Street radials. And the car's solid, undercoated floors are dotted with first-rate details like stainless fluid lines and a large fuel cell.
Featuring supple leather surfacing, this resto-mod's thoughtfully appointed interior is a nice place to spend quality seat time. Speaking of seats, modern buckets complement a full-size bench that's completely unimpeded by the aforementioned tubs. Opposite that bench, a body-matched dash centers modern Kenwood audio in bowtie-stamped stainless, which frames Vintage Air conditioning and clean telemetry. Beneath that dash, blue carpet floats color-keyed mats under billet foot pedals and a custom console, which founds a beefy Hurst shifter between two cupholders and Auto Meter accessory gauges. And the driver navigates the road through a polished steering wheel that laps a polished, tilting column.
When it comes to comfort, performance and timeless style, nothing beats a storied GM classic. Thanks to a high-quality restoration, this awesome 210 wraps a solid drivetrain in a capable chassis and head turning aesthetics. If you're in the market for a cool cruiser that's fully detailed and ready to hit the road, welcome to the Chevrolet family!
