There are many Restomod vehicles, but few are “born” in front of a TV camera and viewers. But this 1955 Chevrolet 210 belongs to the select group and is looking for a new owner. Some people in this country know the 210 Chevys, which were not very successful at the time. In the 1950s, they were only built for four years. But they are currently very popular with collectors. And this car, a second-generation model from 1955, comes in Viper Red over tan, a livery he used on a fiberglass body in the Horsepower TV series Power Block got missed.
Chevrolet 210 Restomod
In fact, the entire build was done during the TV show and there is even a DVD of the build. It is offered together with the vehicle. The nine-ply (!!!) bright red bodywork sits on an Art Morrison GT Sport chassis and houses a mighty 502cc (8,2-litre) engine under the hood with unprecedented power. The power unit works with the help of an automatic transmission, breathes through a 2,5-inchSports exhaust and drives Nostalgia GT wheels. The braking power comes from a Bremsanlage from the house of Wilwood. And of course the interior is completely leather and also equipped with AutoMeter Phantom displays. One of the gauges is the odometer, and it only shows 1.112 miles (1.790 km) since completion.
