Classic Car Overview

Big engine, big tires, and sinister colors make this 1957 Chevrolet 210 Pro Street the vehicle of choice if you like making a big entrance. With an awesome Pro Street look and a street-friendly demeanor, its the kind of car you can drive long distances and still rip off a few jaw-dropping passes at the strip. Oh, and that paint is all original, making this the first survivor-grade Pro Street weve ever seen. How cool is that? There are a lot of 1957 Chevys out there, thats true. Its a popular car, both then and now, and the reasons folks fall in love with them are obvious. But to rise to the top, to have a car that can be driven and enjoyed, while delivering the kind of looks that makes kids and grown men stop in their tracks as it drives by, well, thats not as easy as it sounds. So, youll definitely appreciate this cars Onyx Black paint scheme, which is amazingly all-original! And as everyone knows, black paint shows any and all imperfections underneath, which bring us to this cars most impressive trait: all the sheetmetal is original too, and its laser straight and as smooth as it was in 1957. You simply cant find better proof of a life lived easy than clean, original sheetmetal, and this 210 boasts some dynamite steel. As you might expect, the black finish shows plenty of patina, with several cracks and scratches in the 63-year old enamel, but thats a major part of this Chevys appeal. At some point in its past, someone swapped out the trim with a 150 and it too has the same patina character you see in the paint, and the result is an incredibly unique car that has a very interesting story to tell. The interior is combined with original and new elements, and the solid execution and neat details make it a cool place to spend some time. The original front seats are still available with the purchase if one should want them, but theyve been swapped out for a new set of Pro Car buckets and Simpson 4-point that fit this Pro Street classic perfectly. The dash was painted black and has plenty of patina just like the exterior, with the original speedometer still in place dead center in front of the driver, a tachometer strapped to the tilt column just in front of it, and a set of auxiliary units under the dash. Thats a TCI shifter down on the floor, and it controls the built TH400 3-speed automatic transmission below. The door panels are likely original, the carpets are new and plush, and the later-model Firebird steering wheel sits atop a tilt column for an added trick look inside. Youve probably already noticed that the back seat was deleted to free up the weight, and a Hansen Racecars custom chromoly roll bar was fitted to stiffen the body in the turns. Out back, the trunk is bone stock, and even though you wouldnt exactly eat off of it, it shows off just how solid the pans and sheetmetal really are. Thats a thundering crate 421 cubic inch stroker V8 and its a neat fit in the 57 engine bay. Obviously, there was an extraordinary amount of time and effort dedicated to the engine bay, showcasing a hardcore look highlighted by the Chevrolet valve covers and open-element chrome air cleaner. Its an incredibly powerful motor rated at around 600 horsepower, accented with Patriot headers and fed through a 4-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock high-rise intake. Polished pulleys help run the accessories, which look clean and modern, an MSD ignition sparks the stroker with ease, and theres a giant aluminum radiator up front that keeps the whole show nice and cool. The aforementioned TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is built to handle all that added power via a reverse valve body and trans brake, and a Hughes convertor with 4000 stall, and it spins a custom drive shaft that ends in the Ford 9-inch rear with 3.42 gears. The chassis is heavily reinforced and uses A-arms and 4-way adjustable coilovers up front, a 4-link with coilovers out back, heavy duty shocks, springs, and sway bars fore and aft, and strong front disc brakes to bring the whole show to a quick stop. The stance is just right and those tough, blacked-out 15-inch Weld wheels and staggered 165/80/15 front and 325/50/15 rear performance tires fit perfectly and finish the Pro Street look. With a huge pile of cash invested in the build, combined with unreal preservation, this spectacular Pro Street is ready for years of fun down the road. Strip or street, its up to you, and this 210 excels at both. Call today!
