1956 Chevrolet 210
Wagon Car for sale in Tallahassee, Florida 32311
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This restored 1956 Chevrolet 210 Wagon carries all the iconic lines of its much more common (and expensive) coupe sisters. It also can carry plenty more of your favorite things with its versatile design. When something this distinctive and practical also comes with a fuel-injected V8 setup and four-on-the-floor, you know you've found the perfect classic!
Red and white two-tone might have been available from the factory in '56, but it never looked as good as this. The maroon/burgundy has a deep metallic element that instantly announces someone invested nicely in this Chevy. And the India Ivory has the bright shine that can only come from a more modern application. It's part of a very smooth total package that expertly removed badging to highlights the sleekness of the sheetmetal. Plus, the Ridler alloy wheels staggered 18/20 inches front/rear adds to this standout modern appearance. But even with all these updates an icon like the '56 Chevy never loses its vintage appeal. The 1956 grille is arguably the best of the tri-fives, as it merges the cleanliness of the previous year with the full-width presentation that continued into '57. Plus, this one retains all the great aircraft-inspired brightwork running the full length of the body. The bumpers were even re-chromed for extra flair.
One look inside and you're instantly reminded of the large investment in this custom build. The front buckets are a new modern instillation that takes advantage of everything from modern bolstering to a cup holder center console. The result is true all-day comfort. The red and gray custom presentation seen here is repeated on the back seats, side panels, and even the tailgate for a full uniform presentation. And speaking of the rear hatch, that's your gateway to the large storage area that makes this classic versatile for everything from a showcase area to the ultimate tailgating friend. And while the spacious and plush interior makes this a practical classic, you don't need to load this one down with family and friends to have a good time. You instantly feel this Chevy's performance atmosphere the moment you slip behind the red and chrome steering wheel. And as you gaze across the iconic dual cowl dash, you'll spot great upgrades like the auxiliary gauge trio and the upgraded Sun Super Tach that goes particularly well with the Hurst shifter.
This dark engine bay is purposely designed to funnel all your attention to the power of this 350 cubic-inch V8. We just love how the valve covers had their ridges painted to match the bold Chevy orange block. But we know what really has your attention are those long tube headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. And you have complete control over this powerful V8 and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Add in front disc brakes and the grip of modern Nexen tires, and you soon realize this is a fine-driving wagon.
We all love a good grocery-getter that's been customized for performance and appearance. After all, it's where your practical head meets your enthusiast heart. So this all-around icon is ready now for a new driver! Call Michael today at (334) 790-2532
