For 1955, Chevrolet was offered in three basic trim levels, the 150 which was aimed at economy and fleet buyers such as police cars and taxi cabs; the 210 which was marketed towards growing families and was among the most popular models sold, and the Belair, which was also a family car but with a bit more chrome trim, flair and interior appointments. Regardless of the model, customizers took stock and made it their own car. However, looking back 60+ years ago, some builders today are seeing the beauty of the original design, but are adding their own touches with special colors, wheels, passenger compartment updates and most importantly, what is under the hood. The builder of this beautiful creation captured that train of thought.The Car: Finished in a Bright White and dazzling Gold Metallic, what started as a 210 sedan was upgraded with a full set of Belair trim for exterior décor, while the interior was given a full make-over providing the occupants an enjoyable and comfortable ride. Under the hood resides a mighty “350” cubic inch V8 that starts easy and runs strong. It is backed up by a Borg-Warner T-10 4-speed transmission, which goes through the gears like a hot-knife through butter. Seats have been covered in a gray cloth that is inviting and no mistaking what type of car you are driving with the bow-tie logo emblazoned on the rear seat. Factory Rally wheels are mounted to the car with the under-stated blackwall radial tires and the rumble from the exhaust lets others know you mean business. Our consignor reports that this is one of the most civilized rides he has driven. Ready for the spring-time cruises or a day at the park, this is a design that is hard to improve upon and it can be yours.
