For Sale: 1956 Chevrolet Two-Ten Series
Custom. Beautiful. Show Quality!
WOW! WOW! WOW! Iâ€™m lost for words!
This is one of the most beautiful 150â€™s/210â€™s/Bel Airâ€™s Iâ€™ve seen!
Absolute show quality car that runs and drives as good as it looks!
Life for this car started as a 265 2BBL with a 3-speed on the column!
Meticulous frame off rotisserie restoration completed by David Long over multiple years. Only 100 test miles since competition!
Itâ€™s believed to have most of the original sheet metal. The body is very straight and it has great gaps. The hood, doors and trunk open and close like a vault!
The paint color combination of PPG Jade Green and Sandlewood looks truly spectacular. This car was painted by a well-known classic car painter and is show quality!
Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as all the glass, glass stainless trim, door handles, mirrors, moldings, bumpers, grille and lights. The bird, hood and trunk emblems and hood bar are all show quality. Besides the body and paint these items are what make it a lot nicer than its competition!
The car sits perfectly on American Racing Torque Thrust wheels that are 15â€ť on the front with 215/60/15 BF Goodrich tires and 16â€ť on the rear with 245/50/16 tires. This wheel and tires combination provides a great ride with no rubbing issues. It also allows some rubber to stick to the pavement when the driver decides to get on the gas and rip through the 4-speed!
The exterior is complimented by a new custom interior that was designed and completed by well-known T.N.T. Custom Interiors in Cortland, OH. The headliner, door panels with arm rests, kicker panels with speakers, bucket reclining seats and center console has all been customized and looks amazing!
Some interior upgrades include a American Auto wire harness and fuse box, painted dash, all new gauges including an Autometer tachometer, ididit tilt steering wheel column with billet levers and Budnick Velocity 15.5â€ť steering wheel. Everything in the interior is new such as the rear view mirror, window felts, seat belts front and back, ignition system, headlight switches, dimmer switches and clock. All the windows roll up and down smoothly!
The trunk compartment is very detailed and looks great. Thereâ€™s plenty of room for whatever you desire!
The engine compartment is very detailed and home to the built 283 V8. Everything in the engine compartment has been restored or replaced. The firewall is very nice and smooth. The inner fenders are new. The hood hinges and springs are also new. This engine was built to be user friendly and thatâ€™s exactly what it is. It starts and runs as good as it looks. The custom matching air cleaner puts the icing on the cake!
The engine is a 1967 283 that came out of a Chevelle. It had 70,000 miles before the professional rebuild. Some of the rebuild includes re honed pistons, hardened and seats installed to run on unleaded gas, new rings, rod main and cam bearings and oil pump. The cam grind and intake is from a 1966 327 350HP engine from a Corvette. It has a new water pump, fuel pump, starter, distributor, Power Master 100 amp, pulleys, belts and hoses. The battery also has a power cutoff knob when the car is being stored!
The engine breathes out factory manifolds into a custom 2â€ť dual exhaust system that was bent to fit perfectly. The turbo mufflers give it a great sound that is just right!
The engine is coupled to a close ratio Muncie 4-speed from 1967. Itâ€™s been completely rebuilt including new larger synchronizers, gaskets, gear clusters, Hurst Competition Plus shifter and linkage. It also has a new 11â€ť clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing. The steel flywheel was re-surfaced!
The rear end is a 12 bolt with posi traction and 3.55 gears that came out of a Camaro. It has been completely rebuilt including all new bearings and seals, cleaned carrier, new ring and pinion gears, etc!
Itâ€™s equipped with power steering. It has a new 605 style steering box with matching pump and hoses. This car steers effortlessly and doesnâ€™t sway on the road. The new Budnick steering wheel also feels great when cruising!
The undercarriage of this car is also very detailed and show quality. This is another thing that separates this car from its competition. The undercarriage was stripped to bear metal and everything was restored or replaced. The chassis was also stripped to bear metal and painted with Bill Hirsh chassis paint. It has all new body mounts and bushings. It also has a new 16 gallon fuel tank with filler tube and stainless fuel lines!
It has an upgraded braking system that consists of a modern brake power booster and master cylinder. It also has Raybesto 12â€ť disc brakes from a Camaro Iroc Z with 3â€ť caliper pistons for great stopping power!
The suspension system has been upgraded with 2â€ť CPP drop spindles and 1â€ť lowering springs. This gives it better handling and a great look!
â€śAs my website indicates Iâ€™ve collected and sold many beautiful 1955-1957 Chevy 150â€™s, 210â€™s and Bel Airâ€™s. Iâ€™ve also seen hundreds of these cars at car shows and auctions over the years. This car isnâ€™t the best but itâ€™s in the top 20% of the cars Iâ€™ve seen. The body, gaps, paint and trim work is truly beautiful. All of the glass is also new. I also love the color combination. Sometimes the colors make all the difference and this proves that to be true statement. The great exterior looks flow into the rich looking custom interior. This interior is really sweet and it even smells new. Sitting in the bucket seat with one hand on the Budnick steering wheel and the other on the Hurst shifter is a very cool feeling. The builder David Long kept things real with the engine compartment and built 283 V8. He wanted to build something that was era correct and could be driven anywhere anytime. The 4-speed shifts smoothly and the power is transferred to the pavement through the 12-bolt rear end. The undercarriage is so detailed its worthy of mirrors at a car show. I would challenge anyone to find a comparable car for less! Get it before someone else does!â€ť
