1956 Chevrolet 210 2-Door Sedan

1956 Chevrolet 210 2-Door Sedan

The Chevrolet Two-Ten, or 210, was the midrange model of the Chevrolet car from 1953 to 1957.  It took its name by shortening the production series number, (2100), by one digit in order to capitalize on the 1950's trend toward numerical auto names. The numerical designation '"210"' was also sporadically used in company literature.  It replaced the Styleline DeLuxe model available in previous years.  The Two-Ten was discontinued after the 1957 model year to be replaced by the Biscayne.  The Two-Ten shared the wedge-shaped side trim with the Bel Air, but unlike the Bel Air, (which had the wedge filled with an aluminum trim panel), the Two-Ten's wedge was painted either body color, or top color with the optional two-tone paint package. "Chevrolet" in script was mounted inside the wedge.

This drivable project example of a 1956 Chevrolet 210 2 door owned by our consignor's brother for 17 years, but now with their business growing and following the mantra of "happy wife, happy life", we are proudly able to offer this consignment to you.  Sporting a non original 283ci V8, stripped of its trim, and with a snappy interior you can't go wrong with this middle year Chevy from the Tri-Five craze.

Exterior
A coating of primer black covers the prior coating of Tropical Turquoise on the panels of this 210 and presents with some sanding scratches, dents, scrapes and blotchiness of the paint.  Some evidence of prior bodywork, rust bubbling and rust staining is apparent on the lower extremities of the body.  The chrome bumpers are good, and the trim that has been retained is shiny with no dimpling.  15-inch Weld DragLite wheels wrapped in staggered black wall rubber are seen on all 4 corners.  A shout to the rear brake lights with their Buck Rogers styling within ever so slightly finned rear quarter corners.  From the front hood ornament of the streaking jet, single headlight on either side with a steel visor above and lots-o-chrome below with the egg crate black grille and lower bumper with extra chrome vertical bump bars.  Let's go to the drive-in and turn some heads on nostalgia night, then out to the old airport for an impromptu hanky drop drag race.  A shout out to the curved glass in front and back, which wraps around to form the rear of the passenger's compartment, which we are waiting with eager anticipation to enter and read about...here we go!

Interior
Starting at the base, lightly soiled black carpeting covers the floors.  With the factory bench seat long gone, black vinyl covered buckets seats take its place and look splendid wrapped in smooth black vinyl for the bolsters and tuck and roll inserts.  A sprawling bench seat in the rear follows suit in the same color and pattern.  This tuck and roll and smooth pattern appears on the interior side panels as well as the doors, however the panels on the door have succumbed to moisture and show as wavy and bloated.  An all-steel dash is stunning with the all black, and the two fan like bumps holding the speedometer and the passenger are present and cannot be missed.  A Grant rally style steering wheel is seen fronting the dash as is a column mounted tachometer.  A quad of white faces gauges is installed in the dash where the radio once did reside and the chrome heater/defroster knobs are present and accounted for.  Peeking in the NYC 2 bedroom apartment sized trunk reveals hints of the former turquoise along with a ribbed black rubber mat for good measure.

Drivetrain
Lifting the hood we see the factory applied coating on the underside and between the fenders is a very simplistic orange painted 283ci V8.  A Holley 4-barrel carburetor feeds fuel to this mill through an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and some chrome is on for the dress up of the valve covers and air cleaner.  This is attached to a non-original 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission, and the two work together beautifully to feed power back to the rear axle weighing in with a 3.36 ratio

Undercarriage
A strong rust-free frame supports the floors and rockers which both show signs of repair as are the numerous body hangers with some repaired and some in various states of invasive rust and more invasive rust on the inner rockers.  Independent coil spring suspension with drum brakes is noted up front and in the back, we see new leaf springs and drum brakes.  A newer dual exhaust system with glasspack style mufflers ends just before the rear axle and this rounds out our tour down below.

Drive-Ability
The car runs well, accelerates nicely and shifts smoothly through the gears.  It has a nice cruising altitude if you will, and an overall comfortable seating and ride.  A very impressive fun and event free test drive from this classic.

An iconic car that has undergone a few changes mainly in the drivetrain department but maintains the overall original look, with some of the exterior panels starting to show some wear and tear, and a beautiful 50's interior.  A solid power plant, a nice drivable project example of the mid Tri Five era in the mid end trim form of a 210.  And the dual fan dash is to die for!
