There's something special about an untouched, original car. Maybe it's the fun of speculating about its life, or the veritable road map of how the factory built it, but go to any car show and you'll undoubtedly see the biggest crowds around survivors like this 1952 Chevy 210. Shiny paint is common, and just about anyone can make a car look good with fresh paint, but if you want to attract attention, what you need is patina. Original sheetmetal is always nice, and with an original car you can see exactly what you're getting without worrying about a cover-up. Vintage paint has a look all its own too, a soft gloss that's the result of time and hours of polishing by multiple owners over the years. Want to attract attention? Roll into the next cruise night behind the wheel of this one and watch everyone rush over to not only look at the car, but also note how many people run their hands over the ancient paint. Even the chrome on this one has a story to tell, showing us what production plating looked like in the '50s, and how careful maintenance can keep a shine on stainless over the years. Inside, there's an equally ancient interior that smells like history and demonstrates that they really don't make them like they used to. Natural fabrics and fibers throughout mean that original upholstery has a look and feel modern foam and vinyl can't touch. Sure, it's worn, but think of all the happy miles folks have spent behind the wheel of this coupe, the places they've seen, and the dedication they've shown in taking care of it. The gauges are remarkably crisp and fully functional, and the steering wheel looks immune to the ravages of age. As basic transportation, this Chevy didn't even get a radio, but you won't miss it while you're listening to the engine and enjoying the ride. The trunk also shows a rust-free floor, so you don't have to worry there, and there's a full-sized spare just in case. Finally, nothing drives like an original car. You can restore it, but it's absolutely impossible to duplicate the factory feeling, and even an ancient original car like this will often have a notably tighter feel than a restored machine. It's an intangible thing, but it's there. This car's 235 cubic inch six spins to life and settles into an even idle, making good oil pressure and needing no special attention. The engine bay is clean and tidy with signs of regular maintenance, and it's obvious that someone kept up with the cleaning. The 3-speed manual slips through the gears with a silky precision, and the suspension is supple without feeling loose. Undoubtedly the modern radials help, but they're mounted on the original steel wheels with simple dog-dish hubcaps. Take this one home and you'll probably find yourself marveling at how well it works. Restored cars rarely do that, but it's a way of life for survivors. Call today!
