We are extremely proud to present this custom built 1955 Chevy 210 custom street rod. It is more than just a car, it is a work of art. This car was built in or about 2004. It is still as beautiful as it was when it was built. We will try to describe every detail about it, but there are so many we may miss a few. The heart of this Chevrolet is the balanced and blueprinted Dart 427. The AFR aluminum cylinder heads provide plenty of breathing room for the Weiand polished supercharger to force feed the engine.
This custom steel hood was designed by the owner builder. It was beautifully crafted and fits the ar perfectly. Also, the entire fit and finish of this car are superb. The fire wall and inner fenders were disassembled and finished to show quality. This car does not look like it was built almost 17 years ago. The custom headers expel gases through the custom exhaust system. This engine is capable of 700 flywheel horse power. The car has never been raced, but would surely do well if you chose to. The engine compartment looks even better with the addition of the billet aluminum serpentine belt and pulley setup. There is also the a polished a/c compressor for the new 134A a/c system.
You can see the attention to detail in this engine compartment. The original owner spared no expense to create his dream car. There are over $60,000. spent and that is 2004 prices. Building this car today would be a great deal more.
Cooling is courtesy of an aluminum Be Cool radiator and polished overflow tank. The interior in this car is just as nice as when it was built. We know a great deal about this car, because we have sold it twice. We sold it for the family of the original owner in 2009. It went to south Texas and was there until 2014. That owner put very few miles on the car. It was at that time appraised at $85,000. That owner had some personal problems and asked us to sell the car for him.
In 2014 we took the car to the Dallas Autorama and displayed it in our dealer booth. It was one of the top attention getters at the show. We then sold it to the current owner. You can see the detail in the upholstery. The stitching is perfect and the red and black combination just sets of the black mirror finish of the car. The seat is very comfortable and the perforated red fabric breathes to keep you cooler. The original gauge cluster was restored and looks great.
A suitable transmission was needed to handle the beefy 427. THE owner chose the Richmond 6 speed manual transmission. The current owner has purchased 2 additional Richmonds over his 7 years of ownership. He is offering those transmission to the buyer of the car at $3500. each. They are getting hard to come by, and he just had them just in case they were ever needed.
The bench seat was customized to accommodate the floor shifter. The clock even works. All of the seals around windows and doors are still soft and are not cracked or worn. The undercarriage was originally powder coated and is still in very good condition. The killer stance is due to the tires and wheels. The rear tires are Hoosier Pro Street radials. they are 29X12.5 50 R 15LT and the front tires are 205/75s. All are mounted on the polished aluminum Weld racing wheels. You can see the depth of this paint. It is one of the best parts of this custom 210.
I am sure we have left out something, but just give us a call to discuss the car in depth. We will be glad to give you more history and details. Our photos speak for themselves and show as much of the car as we thought a buyer would want to see. IF you need any other photos of specific areas we will be glad to shoot more.
