Over the years, Chevrolet has enjoyed its fair share of successes and failures, as well as long-lived models, and some not-so-long-lived models. With a lifetime run of only 4 years, from 1953-1957, the Chevrolet 210 epitomizes what most people envision when thinking of a classic car from the 1950s. In the middle of its run, in 1955, this model got a new chassis and the ever popular block V8 engine. This was a car which would fit families of all sizes, as it was available in two and four door sedan and station wagon versions, a sport coupe hardtop, and a convertible. The station wagon could fit up to 6 people, while the convertible made for a tighter squeeze.
Two speed automatic transmission was available, as were two different three-speed manual transmission types. Chrome plated bumpers and grille, among other things gave a hint of luxury, but the car was still affordable. The most popular body style was the four-door sedan, which cost $1819 (about $15,616 today), while the most expensive was the four-door station wagon, which cost $2130 (or about $18,286 today).
At just over 160 horsepower, this model was not very fast, but it was certainly practical. Though the model was discontinued in 1957, this particular unit seems as though it was fresh off the line. Take a look!
