This Glacier Blue and Skyline Blue 1955 Chevy 210 (“Two-Ten”) Two-Door Sedan (usually called a two-entryway post) is an extraordinary illustration of how well ’55 Chevys loan themselves to being altered. Two-entryway post bodies are regularly liked by hot rodders because of their racing relationship, as they were lighter and more unbending than hardtops.
The merchant expresses that no costs were saved on this expertly constructed dragster. Apparently, it looks unique aside from present day haggles and a blower scoop staying through the hood. That scoop takes care of outside air to a 600-pull, 454-cubic inch supercharged enormous square V-8 supported by a Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 transmission and 9-inch Ford backside. That combo places a lot of hot in this exemplary dragster.
Motivation comes from an iron-block 454 of mid-seventies vintage that was built by Gunther’s Racing Engines in 2015. It has a hydraulic camshaft and streetable compression, so the seller reports it runs happily on pump gas. Aluminum Edelbrock cylinder heads and a Weiand 174 Pro-Street supercharger help boost horsepower past a claimed 600 threshold. The seller states the engine starts easily and idles nicely—along with that hot rodder favorite: blower whine. Other performance upgrades include a Holley four-barrel carburetor with an electric choke, MSD ignition, exhaust headers, and turbo-style mufflers. The exhaust is tucked up neatly in the chassis to complement the car’s clean overall look. A high-capacity aluminum radiator with dual fans helps keep engine temps cool.
The Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 three-speed automatic transmission has a deep pan for added fluid capacity and cooling. The rear end is one of Ford’s famously stout 9-inch units.
This exemplary body is the aftereffect of a no-cost saved reclamation as indicated by the vender. Taking a gander at the photographs shows tight board holes and excellent seeming trim arrangement even in usually troublesome regions like the hood and grille. This 210 body has been updated with Bel Air trim things like the white community side lances and surprisingly the little “V” tokens underneath the taillights. All the chrome and impeccable trim shows up deformity free in the photographs. The 1955-right tones are Skyline Blue over Glacier Blue. The vender expresses that the paint has been expertly waxed to a show-level type.
Inside this ’55, we see tastefully rolled and pleated black vinyl upholstery with button accents on original style bench seats. The door panels were done to match. The back seat is full-width with ample room for friends and family. Hot weather isn’t a problem thanks to modern aftermarket air conditioning. An AM/FM/cassette player with premium speakers provides audio entertainment. A wood-grained steering wheel is mounted in front of a huge Auto Meter 10-grand tachometer with a racing style shift light. An aftermarket shifter is mounted on the transmission tunnel. The trunk has a factory-style mat and a battery mounted in a protective case.
Underneath the attractive sheet metal is a vintage 1955 frame with suspension upgrades that include performance shocks, traction bars, quick-ratio power steering, front disc brakes, and a 9-inch rear end. The rear brakes are drums. Tall, rear Mickey Thompson high-speed radial tires and shorter front ones give the ’55 a classic, mildly raked stance. The polished 15-inch aluminum wheels are Weld Rodlites.
This vehicle will be sold on a clean Maryland title provided by the selling dealer. The odometer currently reads 41,049 miles. Two sets of keys and various receipts are included.
This supercharged, 454-powered 1955 Chevrolet Two-Door Sedan car was part of a collection that’s being reduced in size. The only thing not being reduced is the appeal of a powerful, tastefully modified 55 Chevy hot rod.
