1955 Chevy 210 2dr sedan powered by a +. 030” 400 SBC and a Saginaw 4-speed transmission with a Hurst shifter.   Rearend is the original.   Car has had some patchwork done in the floor pans. but is overall a very solid car. including the body mounts.   Entire interior is brand new custom leather over original '55 seats.   Also has brand new carpet and headliner / etc.  Car has had the dash and door jambs painted already and could be finish painted with a minimum of work…. Assuming you like the color.   (I was thinking two tone Black / Silver)

Color: 2004 suburban / Silver Birch metallic - Paint Code---   926L


CAR HAS NEW (this is a partial list – have receipts for some. but just installation instructions for others – Just what's listed is about $4. 00+ worth of stuff)…. Don't know the exact amount spent. as I bought it from a friend and was afraid to ask – But trust me it's A LOT!!!

-          Electric windshield wipers

-          Radio antenna

WHAT I'VE DONE TO THE CAR:

 

-          Install new drop springs (1”) and then cut off extra for desired ride height (small amount of rake)

-          New 1-piece Felpro oil pan gasket (was cork - leaking)

-          New Felpro rear main seal ( was new. but I was there anyway)

-          Rebuild 4-speed (new synchros / seals / bearings) – all quality parts

-          Install 15” steering wheel

-          Fix leak on waterneck

-          Adjust choke / carb.

-          Fix exhaust system leaks / etc.

-          Add diode to alternator (starter re-engage when turned off)

-          Add floormats

 

Car runs and drives well and has plenty of power

 

Things I think need changed:

-          A car like this should have full exhaust over the rear axle and out the back (right now it stops right before the rear end – sounds good though)

-          Previous owners riveted in some floor patches. would like to have them welded in…BUT I'm far too lazy to disassemble the whole entire interior to do so

-          Speedometer makes an annoying noise…Not sure if it's the cable needs re-routed or the speedo itself has an issue or?? (it's all new parts??)

 

All in all a VERY nice car with lots of money and time spent on it……And cheaper than building one yourself when you figure what a decent '55 goes for these days BEFORE being re-done…. Then add to that all of the parts and time that went into this car. and it becomes a real bargain. If you do the paint yourself. it should be a money-maker when it's done. Or just drive and enjoy it!!!!
