A Southern car with an original TEXAS type inspection sticker and original TEXAS license plates. Amazingly well preserved and very hard to find restored condition with a clean title. Is a complete body off frame rotisserie restoration of a 1955 Chevrolet 210 Post.
The frame and body totally stripped, primed and painted. The stare inducing Porsche metallic green exterior is no ordinary paint job, but rather the result of three applications of clearcoat over the metallic green base coat. The freshly polished chrome and new looking glass make it sparkle. The signature rocket shaped emblem on the hood actually appears to radiate and even the badging in front and back looks more colorful than normal! When you take a closer look, you also notice that all of the light bezels look particularly sharp and polished with the new lights installed. Inside has an outstanding interior matching the same high standards you see on the outside.
The black leather bench seats in both front and back reflect the obvious high quality and handiwork of renowned craftsmen along with the headliner and carpet. Just beyond the custom steering wheel sitting on top of a polished aluminum IDIDIT tilt column is a dash area that is a very impressive blend of black steel and chrome trim.
The stock, fan shaped instrument cluster housing the speedometer, temperature gauge and fuel level is crystal clear along with the tachometer, volts and oil pressure that monitors the other motoring functions. An AM/FM radio sporting a very era appropriate look sits front and center amidst an expanse of chrome and just below is a vintage air climate control system that is ready to keep you nice and comfortable. In back of the spacious trunk area that is nice and clean, it has a full sized spare tire and rim sitting squarely and securely on the carpet lined floor.
The configuring of the drivetrain was built for dependability and high-performance driving. Under the hood you will see a modern Chevrolet icon powering this restored Chevrolet coupe.
It has a 350-cubic inch LS1 engine bored .30 over with CROWER roller rockers, cam and lifters, MANLEY pistons, EAGLE crank and features tuned port injection as its foundation, offering both abundant power and reliable performance.
It is mated to 700r4 automatic overdrive transmission with an 1800 stall and a 1964 Chevrolet center section posi-traction rear end with 3.36 gears for effortless low RPM highway cruising.
This classic sits with a very fitting low and slightly inclined stance on a set of 15-inch steel rims outfitted with a set of radial tires.
This 1955 Chevrolet 210 Post is well equipped for driving in the real world with BAER power front disc brakes as well as power steering making navigation and stopping a low effort endeavor.
Since the restoration it has only been driven sparingly on nice weekends. I never drove it in the rain and was extremely careful when I washed it. The undercarriage is exceptionally clean, and dry with no issues. It has mainly been used to drive down to the KELLER’S Drive-In in Dallas on Sunday afternoon and for local parades.
