Classic Car Overview

Looking through our inventory, youll see a lot of Tri-5 Chevys, but one thing sticks out: there arent all that many 56s like this super clean 1956 Chevrolet 210 post 2-door sedan. Whether thats because there are fewer of them out there in the world or because their owners love them too much to part with them, we cant say. What we can say is that if youre a fan of the smooth, refined look of the 56 models, this dialed-in Tri-5 is an excellent choice for a turn-key rod. Painting this 56 210 bright white over teal means that someone wanted to get noticed, and with that comes the responsibility to get the bodywork right. Many hobbyists feel that the 56s are the cleanest of the Tri-Fives, and the awesome two-tone finish on this one certainly reinforces that perspective. Theres no place for sloppy gaps to hide, so the builders made sure they were nice and even, and while traditional two-tone paint jobs were offered by the factory, the updated palette of this car makes a statement, too. Finished just 2,532 miles ago, the paint and bodywork still looks very fresh, with a top driver-quality shine, depth, and luster to both contrasting colors that only high-end builds can boast. The doors shut flush, the lines are laser straight, the drip rails are smooth and clean, and the gaps are all exacting - and because they got the bodywork trimmed out properly the paint needed to match the effort. Thankfully it does, with only minor imperfections to report, and even though its been driven and enjoyed, it still looks like a million bucks you cant argue with the looks this car gets on the street. The polished stainless, particularly the blinging 210-spec side trim, stands out and looks fantastic, emphasizing the cars lean, sporty profile while it separates the two colors. Theres also a sizeable investment in chrome, because the bumpers, grille, and other ornamentation thats all in excellent shape, and despite being an updated build, there are no real deviations from the stock look and all the trim is present and accounted for. The interior nails the perfect blend of retro and modern, combining the original dash with upgrades like modern two-tone vinyl upholstery that looks great. Doing it this way not only gives you more comfort, but an upholstery combination that looks fantastic in the vintage Chevy bodywork. Gorgeous two-tone turquoise and white vinyl upholstery on the bench seats is loads nicer than anything you could get in the 50s, and the door panels were stitched to match. Turquoise carpets with the correct pile and loop line the floors and continue the color theme inside, and the taut headliner above was finished to match to complete the cabins full suite. Its incredibly clean and fresh inside, so much so that we had our photographer take off his shoes before he climbed in to document this beauty. The teal dash was beautifully painted and covered with brightly polished trim, blinging bright as the anchor of the cabin. A polished tilt column with a leather-rimmed billet wheel adds to the comfort inside, because youre going to want to spend a lot of time in here, and the column shifter was polished to match. Just ahead of it, the instrument bezel is full of black-faced digital/analog gauges that are far more accurate than what came stock in 1956, and for entertainment, theres a retro-sound AM/FM/AUX stereo that fits in the dash like it was born there. The biggest modification might be the modern A/C unit, but it fits in neatly enough given this cars somewhat dual personality. The trunk was also finished to the same top-end standards as the cabin, with hidden panels that match the patterns inside and plush carpets on the floors. Easy and reliable cruising was the goal of this build (with a touch bit more power), and with that in mind the builders installed a strong 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 thats been augmented with an .040 overbore, fresh 350 heads, a 327 steel crank, flat-top pistons, and a healthy cam inside. The small block runs great and looks even better covered in all that chrome, and its fed through a Holley 4-barrel carb atop a polish aluminum intake, and breathers easy through a set of long-tube headers at the flanks. Theres plenty of flash under there, too, because youre going to want to take this one to the cruise night and open the hood, and youll dig details like the glossy black inner fenders, firewall, aluminum valve covers and chrome Edelbrock open-air cleaner. The modern A/C compressor, alternator, and dual master cylinder/brake booster were brightly polished to match, and the Chevy Orange engine enamel on the block really pops out from the engine bay. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission offers quick reflexes and a towering overdrive gear and the stock rear end hangs on a set of upgraded shocks so this car always has the right attitude and stance. Long-tube headers and a dual exhaust system with Super Turbo mufflers sounds awesome, a big aluminum radiator keeps the whole show nice and cool, and power steering and power front disc brakes mean this car was meant for the road, not just the show field. Polished Jegs finish the sporty look and wear 225/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich white-letter radials. Its a safe bet to assume this car will be like all the other 56s we feature: it wont last long. Call today!
