1955 Chevrolet 210
Restomod (restoration + modern parts/technology) draws from all the amazing advancements in automobile technology over the past 40 plus years to enhance the performance, comfort and safety of the classic car. A restomod car has the timeless appearance of the original, but the outdated guts of the car have been replaced with the more modern, high-performance parts of today. You achieve the same great look, but your vintage car will be revved up with all the latest bells and whistles to create a much better ride and experience for the owner.
A rotisserie frame off build, gobs of new parts and upgrades, a new interior, great two tone paint, oversize Boss Wheels wrapped with Hankooks, and you are tuned in to do some neck snapping, head turning, eye popping, and award collecting.
Maintaining much of the mild mannered 210 exterior look as to original styling, this car has taken on another personality when it comes to color. Emblazoned with Corvette Atomic Orange, and 55 Chevy Beige two tone, plenty of bling in the form of brite work, straight panels, well minded gaps, and new glass all around, one can't help but ogle at it, and feel warm and fuzzy inside. Lucas headlights blaze the way forward and bringing up the rear are LED taillights in their original shape from the factory. Save for the Boss wheels giving us a peek at the large rotor discs that have replaced the tired old drums, this car appears like it just was driven off the showroom floor, only its 2019!
The theory here was go in and gut the old, and in with the new, in the form of a 2011 Nissan Maxima, but with some steroids in the likes of Custom Cream leather with immaculate stitching and velour inserts in contrasting Rust color. 6 way power front buckets and a nifty rear bench complete with plenty of comfortable padding and a center armrest, you can cruise all day and be stylin' the entire time. A custom center console, custom modified dash maintaining the eyebrows but with new classic gauge inserts, has plenty of chrome eye candy attached. The consigner states that this car has 1/2” of sound deadener in the floors, quarters, and doors, to enhance your audiophile experience which you have to hear to believe…in other words a kick ass stereo and speaker setup.
Insert under hood a 383ci Stroker complete with ceramic coated headers, an aluminum intake with a 600 Edelbrock carb, an HEI distributor, then bolt on a beefed up 350 Turbo Transmission, and you will be putting out some 450hp before the end of the day. Light up those Hankooks!
Truly a sight to behold and will certainly make you salivate when you peek underneath. You'll be met with an underside base coat and clear coat just like the top, stainless steel gas tank, power disc brakes, power steering, Flowmaster exhaust, and a perfect black framework and suspension. Wahooo!
There are people who take pride in their work, and then there are people who go all out with a particular project. This 55 210 is the latter, and I'd suggest you get on down to Classic Auto Mall and check this restomod out because it's going to fly out of our halls quickly, just like the bread and milk shelves prior to a snowstorm. You could not ask for a nicer example.
