This 1956 Chevrolet 210 hardtop sedan has a great two-tone appearance, a correct-style V8, and one of the coolest profiles going. So when something this distinct is also quite affordable, then it's a deal worth digging into deeper.
The '56 Chevy has remained the enduring motoring icon because of how well it represented what we wanted in the 1950s: artful colors, plenty of chrome, and rocket-inspired designs. And this one does it best. First of all, it's a hardtop sedan, so that pillarless hardtop profile is longer than even on the coupes. And the two-tone is timeless. The trim tag tells us this was born an India Ivory and Onyx Black car. The color was updated later in life to make sure it remains looking bright while staying vintage. And speaking of vintage, the full-length trim does a great job of separating the two colors along the body. And with the roof in black, this one can earn itself a nickname like Oreo. And all the best pieces are still in place, including the '56 car's exclusive grille, wraparound chrome bumpers, jet-inspired hood ornament, rear fender skirts, and classic wheel covers with iconic whitewalls.
Because the pillarless hardtop makes it easy for people to get a good look inside, they made sure that the interior was impressive. The silvery gray fabric pattern on the seats is pure vintage cool, and the side panels even match. And it goes well with the creamy white outlining the seats, door panels, and headliner. It all has a great vintage feel with details, like the thin steering wheel, an AM radio that's there for display, and a correct-style spare in the trunk with jack instruction still in place. And there are even the right additions, like the classic traffic light viewer on the dash, and the handy oil pressure gauge under the heat controls.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So you'll be happy to lift the hood and see a 265 cubic-inch V8 boldly radiating from within the dark engine bay. It has a terrifically correct look with cursive script valve covers, a generator, and a huge factory oil bath air cleaner on top. This has a four-barrel carburetor and a dual exhaust to give you extra pep on the streets and the right V8 tune. And the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission has a great vintage feel.
A hardtop sedan is a great classic that gives you more space to appreciate the profile you love. And the 210 version was sold in such few numbers that it's rarer than even a '56 Bel Air convertible! So if you want a very cool collectible icon, don't miss this hardtop. Call now!
