1955 Chevrolet 210 Del Ray Restomod
We could tell you this 1955 Chevrolet 210 Del Ray Restomod is a complete and custom build, but you already knew that from the first impression. While every picture reveals a big investment, don't forget to look at all the details that makes this a unique and European-inspired American classic. This coupe grabs all the right attention. The slippery-smooth Titanium Silver Metallic color is an instant signal that they turned this iconic Tri-Five into a very modern machine. In fact, the color is actually borrowed from a Porsche Cayenne! This also has large 18-inch Breyton lightweight wheels intended for a modern BMW. Even details like the side mirrors and door handles were borrowed from Porsches. So yes, this Chevy is very unique with its Euro flair. But there's a ton more here than just integrating the best of Germany. For example, while most '55 Chevy's are known for a two-tone presentation, this one does it a bit differently. All the traditional bright work Ã¢â‚¬â€œ including the bumpers, trim, bezels, jet-inspired hood ornament, etc. Ã¢â‚¬â€œ was expertly re-finished in a lighter silver with the same slick clear coat as the exterior paint. The result as a shine that evenly runs over the whole car while it highlights the unique monochromatic presentation. So be prepared to attract everyone from classic car lover to art aficionados! Inside the modern tone continues. It especially draws your attention to extra hints of bright color, like the unmistakable M-series tri-tone stripes. It instantly let people know the leather seats were borrowed from a modern performance BMW. Even more details were borrowed from the Germans, like the three-point seatbelts and the Mercedes door panels. It's all expertly integrated into this classic. More than just a unique presentation, you're going to love this for its premium features, such as power front seats, power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input, and provisions for air conditioning. Of course, this is more than just a coddler. Your right hand is instantly attracted to the B&M shifter, and your left one loves the grip of the Momo steering wheel. And beyond that, the full set of digital readouts and the large AutoMeter tach w/shift light instantly get your senses tingling with performance. Grab your sunglasses before opening the hood. They saved the true bright work for the engine bay, and so we dare you to find another component that can be polished to a mirror-like shine. And while you could win awards on presentation alone, there is serious substance behind the style. This is a 350 cubic-inch ZZ3 performance crate motor with less than 12k miles on it. This V8 includes upgrades such as fuel injection, aluminum heads, steel crank, roller cam/lifters, and a large Be Cool aluminum radiator to keep it all running cool. The ceramic coated Hooker headers add even more power as the feed the center-exit dual exhaust. A European-inspired car also means one that can handle sharply on the roads. But to accomplish this, they utilized some very American components. The traditional Chevy front suspension has been upgraded to tubular A-arms. In the rear, this utilizes a C4 Corvette style setup to give you a fully independent suspension. There are just too many new performance components under here to list (call us for all the details!) but the freshness of everything from the sway bar to the bushings reminds you how fresh this whole build is.
