1956 Chevrolet 210 Beauville
This 1956 Chevrolet 210 Beauville Wagon carries all the iconic lines of its much more common (and expensive) coupe brothers, and it also can carry plenty more people with its three-row seating. So this is a classic V8 home run.
The India Ivory and Twilight Turquoise two tone paintwork represents the 1950s in a very elegant way. This is particularly impressive on this Chevy because it was resprayed this factory original color a few years ago, which means a wise owner resisted going with a hot rod red or black. In fact, this period-correct appearance is exactly how to view this nine-person wagon. It has all the great aircraft-inspired brightwork on the hood and running down the body. And of course, there's no mistaking the stylized chrome bumpers at both ends. All of this Bel Air style, even the grille, was part of the midgrade 210 package, and this one looks great without losing the spirit that makes it a 60+ year-old classic. Even those great hubcaps with Chevy bow-ties around the parameter were available on the 210 line.
The white and turquoise theme is continued on the inside to give this is terrific uniform appearance. The dual colors seem to wraparound and intertwine elegantly on the seats, dash, and doors. Plus, this 210 has the great dual cowl dashboard and chrome ring steering wheel to give the driver some flair. The three rows of seating are not only good for carrying family and friends, but also establish this car's rarity. The nine-passenger model was the most expensive of the 210 line, and so as no surprise, it also has the lowest production numbers, too. The interior has an overall feeling of quality on everything from the glossy dash to the doors that shut with confidence. And so when you sit in this car, you can instantly feel that the right preservation and maintenance that creates quite a solid classic.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Five Chevys were the introduction for the small block V8. The only optional eight-cylinder in '56 was the 265 cubic-inch motor. So when you open the hood, it's great to see this now-legendary V8 appearing so authentic. Look beyond the excellent presentation of the bold orange paint and oil bath air cleaner, and you will see a motor that's ready to run. A Rochester four-barrel carburetor as well as nicely maintained wires, hoses, and belts mean a durable and reliable package that reminds you why the small-block Chevy is one of the best around. You can see from the undercarriage photos that this is an all-around solid wagon, and the Powerglide transmission means you can easily show it off anywhere.
This one feels authentic, right down to the whitewall tires. So when rarity, desirability, and affordability all come together, you know you need to hurry for this deal. Call today!!!
