In a segment that's packed with dreamy drop-tops and 6-figure museum fodder, t's pretty rare to see a flashy, ully tubbed strip warrior like this stunning 210. A killer custom that mixes storied Detroit muscle with sublime SoCal style, his impressive Chevy wraps a supercharged 540/3-speed drivetrain in supple leather trim and slick pearlescent paint. If you're looking for an incredible hot rod that's every bit as classy, nd twice as cool, s a stuffy concours car, his exceptional tri-five is primed, olished and ready to rumble!


Possessing straight and solid lines that virtually glow under our bright showroom lighting, his wicked 210 is the beneficiary of a high quality, round-up restoration that was completed roughly two years ago. The car's thoroughly massaged fuselage has been augmented with fresh chrome, olor-keyed emblems and a full outfit of dark-tint glass. Custom touches include LED taillights, ED parking lamps, ual-mode HID headlights, apped wipers and a reworked hood. And today, his awesome bowtie rolls as a fresh and intriguing smile machine that, espite modification, asily upholds the clean, implistic charm that's characteristic of Chevy's beloved 210.


By now, t's probably pretty apparent that this classic was built to be seen. But, hanks to the car's 540 cubic inch supercharged V8, hat might be easier said than done! At the top of that polished and painted mill, shotgun-style air cleaner feeds chromed Quick Fuel Technology carburetors, hich are fitted with braided hoses, olished fluid lines and a liquid-filled MQQN Equipment pressure gauge. Below those carburetors, big Mooneyham blower funnels a perfect air/fuel mixture in to high quality Brodix heads, hich are capped with polished and etched valve covers. Fires get lit by an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, hich jolts green Taylor plug wires. Cooling comes courtesy of a polished aluminum radiator, hich rides between a big pusher fan, polished expansion tank and a Mr. Gasket ThermoCap. Spent gases exit through large-diameter Doug's headers. An array of billet pulleys spins a coated Edelbrock water pump between polished timing components and a chrome Powermaster alternator. And the car's glossy, ody-matched engine compartment is exceptionally well done, ith items like trick dipsticks, llstar breather tanks and Billet Specialties hood hinges upping the ante for both performance and aesthetics.


Not surprisingly, he bottom of this show worthy Chevy continues the theme of pairing proven hardware with enhanced technology. Behind the awesome engine, tough Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed makes good use of a narrowed axle. Turns come courtesy of modern power steering. Speed gets scrubbed by polished Wilwood calipers, hich utilize a CPP master cylinder and proven Hydratech hydraulics to clench drilled and slotted rotors. A large-diameter exhaust system hangs compact cutouts in front of small resonators and large Magnaflow mufflers. The car's body-matched frame and floorpans are a stark contrast to a custom, atin Black suspension, hich floats sturdy ladder bars, ubular control arms and adjustable QA-1 coil-overs under full wheel tubs. That hardware rolls on a sweet set of chrome wheels, hich spin 26x10R18 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs, nd 20x18R20 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs, round Billet Specialties spinners. And fully sorted details, ike a custom oil pan, custom fuel tank, Mallory fuel pump and a heavy-duty transmission cooler, nsure this classic is capable of years of carefree cruising.


Like most ground-up builds, his 210 features a completely reworked interior. The highlights of that leather-lined cockpit include a custom suede headliner, ustom side panels, ustom bucket seats, custom package tray and a custom, ull-length console. That quartet of seats mixes modern lap belts with power adjustment for the car's driver. Those side panels hang billet handles and polished accents beneath green toppers and dice lock knobs. The aforementioned console flows through modern Pioneer audio, beefy TCI shifter and stainless cupholders. At the floor, remium, reen-lit carpet floats stitched mats under billet pedals. At the front of that carpet, color-keyed dash anchors digital telemetry in polished, hevrolet-branded trim. In front of the driver, polished and half-wrapped steering wheel laps a polished, ilting column. And behind the passengers, custom-upholstered trunk hides a bit of storage space.

This vivid Chevy wraps serious go power, rock-solid gear grinder and a spectacular personality in professional, ix-figure aesthetics. There's simply no way a car like this could ever be duplicated for anywhere near our asking price. And if you're bored with all the anonymous antiques that seem to dominate today's car shows, t's the fresh, orced-induction air you've been patiently holding your breathe for!
