We sell a whole lot of Tri-Five Chevys like this pretty 1955 Chevy 210. Why? Because their classic looks never go out of style, they''re easy to modify and typically run and drive like modern cars, and a lot of folks grew up with fond memories of cars just like this. In fact, if I had to name the perfect hobby car, it might be something just like this. Bright red looked great in 1955 and it still looks fantastic today, a tribute to the quality of the Chevy''s design. This car was treated to some high-quality care during its rejuvenation, but it respected the original design. That means no chopping, no cutting, no shaving, but plenty of attention paid to things like gaps and finish quality. It''s the details on a car like this that make it stand out (well, that and the sizzling red paint), and when it catches your eye, there''s nothing on it that will disappoint you. The doors fit well, the line around the trunk lid is even, and the brightly polished stainless side trim between the doors and quarter panels fits so exactly that it looks like one single piece. Getting a car to look like this also requires a sizable commitment to the chrome shop, and all the brightwork is in exceptionally good shape, particularly the California 1-piece bumpers that are so highly sought by builders today. Blue-dot taillight lenses are the final touch, a period accessory that looks totally right on a resto-mod like this. Acres of tan leather inside make no pretense about being period-correct and is so much the better for it. Comfortable power buckets with tan leather with suede inserts look like they came from a high-end late model car, yet look right at home in the totally revamped ''55 interior. More custom handiwork shows in the matching center console, which houses a pair of cup holders and a trick Kenwood touch-screen entertainment system. Dakota Digital gauges fit neatly in the original dash, framed by a two-tone leather steering wheel that''s a neat riff on the original design. Vents for the A/C system were neatly integrated into the dash and console and power windows and locks were added to the doors with an OEM look. The beautifully finished trunk offers more tricks, like the custom battery enclosure and bulkhead panel that has a bright red Chevy emblem on its face. The engine is a 350 cubic inch crate motor with an Edelbrock carb and intake plus lots of chrome. Attention to the plumbing and electrical means that everything looks extremely tidy and virtually everything that wasn''t painted passed over a buffing wheel or through the plater''s shop. Get your sunglasses, because this engine bay sparkles! The 350 is backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, so it cruises effortlessly and the 10-bolt rear is rugged enough to eliminate breakage fears. Built for show and detailed to the max, the chassis is shiny black paint framed by red floors and a gorgeous custom Flowmaster exhaust system. The odometer says 1165 miles, and given how clean the undercarriage is, I''d believe that''s since it was completed. Flashy 17-inch American Racing wheels look right wearing beefy 225/50/17 Hankook radials all around. Just like all the others, this Bel Air won''t last long.
