Any Tri-Five Chevy is a cool car, but some are shining stars amongst the standouts. This 1955 Chevrolet 210 Del Ray post coupe is in that rarefied category with a cool two-tone exterior, the Del Ray special interior upgraded to A/C, and an exceptional small block in the engine bay. And the reason why the total package looks so stellar – there's less than 400 miles on it since completing restoration! This is the first year for the iconic shoebox Chevys, so it's important to get all the details right. That's why this has a great 210-style turquoise and white two-tone. Of course, you could never get this kind of luster and shine in '55, and so what is grabbing your attention now is a full professional respray that takes advantage of vivid modern clearcoats. But it takes more than just great paint to be a cut-above classic. The body was prepped during restoration to have exceptional fit an uniform gaps, which means the light now rolls so nicely across this iconic sheetmetal and all the trim looks like one uninterrupted line. Brightwork is key on these Chevys, so not only is it all complete, but there has been the right investments to keeping everything from the bumpers to the jet-inspired hood ornament shining like mirrors. In fact, this one has been given such a thorough restoration that even the details like the glass and seals are all new. Everything gives you that feeling of great '50s machine. But those large 18-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels also hint that this icon has been upgraded. Inside is a beautifully restored interior with the cool Del Ray upgrade. The color-coordinated package has a unique square pattern in blue and cream on the seats that so nicely matches the door panels. Aside from the color coordination, these Chevys have a great looking interior that includes the dual-cowl style dash that resembles the Corvettes of the era. And this one has extra sports car aggression with the full Eckler's custom gauge panel that's framed so nicely by the color-matched turquoise and chrome steering wheel. But more than just treats for the driver, we know there will be plenty of family and friends that will want to go for a ride. So this has been upgraded with modern R134a air conditioning to keep all your passengers happy, too. Part of what makes these cars a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. The only optional eight-cylinder in this inaugural year was the 265 cubic-inch motor, and so this keeps the original small block spirit, but it has been given a major upgrade to a 350 unit. The exceptionally tidy engine bay shines with components like the ribbed valve covers and matching air cleaner. And features like the Edelbrock intake and four-barrel carburetor add power and help make a throaty growl from the dual exhaust. But don't just listen to the rumble; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see with the investment in a cut-above restoration really gets you. You can see the distinction in a frame-off job as the full underside of the turquoise car glows against the deep black frame. The shine of every last piece, right down to the new nuts and bolts highlight a quality that rarely people see, but makes all the difference at the car show. This is also a classic that's built to be driven with great upgrades such as the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan so this '55 can stay cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C running. As you've poured through all the pictures, you've understood the time and money that has gone into creating this level of quality. Rarely does a car of this caliber come up for sale so soon after completion. Call today!!!
