1956 Chevrolet 210 Townsman Description

Now for sale in our Dallas Showroom is one awesome 56 Chevrolet 210 Wagon. Wagons remain red-hot in the marketplace, and what could be cooler than hauling your gear around in this sweet 1956 Chevrolet 210 station wagon? Classic looks and modern amenities make it easy to love, and a station wagon with a 4-speed manual gearbox is just too cool.

Traditional '50s colors work just as well on a station wagon as they do on a flashy Bel Air convertible, and the Tahoe Turquoise and India Ivory combination here gives the wagon a bright look that disguises the modern upgrades underneath. The good news is that all the sheetmetal is in excellent shape with factory-grade gaps and that solid feeling only old cars seem to offer. The bad news is... well, there is no bad news other than to say this car works so well it's been driven a bit since it was finished, so it's not a show car anymore. Nevertheless, the chrome and stainless trim is very good, particularly the pieces that separate the two colors on the quarter panels, and it's been fitted with new headlights and taillights. The fact that it has four doors doesn't make it any less cool than its Nomad siblings and it's a lot more practical.

Gray fabric makes the interior easy on the eyes and comfortable for long hauls, yet the contrasting turquoise dash and steering wheel keeps it looking like 1956. The important stuff is original, including the gauges, door hardware, and the gorgeous color-matched steering wheel. Beyond that, however, you'll find aftermarket air conditioning neatly stashed under the dash, a Hurst shifter for the 4-speed manual gearbox, and seat belts for safety. A trio of auxiliary gauges has been installed under the dash to monitor oil pressure, temperature, and voltage, while the original AM radio still lives at center stage. The back seat is actually usable thanks to the 4-door design and the wonderful turquoise cargo bay is massive and expands exponentially with the fold-down rear seats. If you like your hot rods practical, this one delivers!

With this 210, you also get a strong-running 283 cubic inch V8 engine, which, of course, looks right sitting in the engine bay. It's a little different than the original version, sporting a chrome air cleaner, fuelie double hump heads and a big Holley double-pumper up top and some trick valve covers with turquoise 'Chevrolet' script on their faces. There's also a big aluminum radiator and the A/C compressor, so there's no hiding the fact that this is a resto-mod built to drive. The Muncie 4-speed manual transmission was recently rebuilt and feeds a 10-bolt rear end hanging on original leaf springs. Power front disc brakes, a custom dual exhaust system, and a slightly lowered suspension are welcome additions that give it a hot rod attitude and easy road manners. The undercarriage is pretty original, so you shouldn't be afraid to drive this one, and the pretty chrome daisy mags with knock-offs are a vintage look that works rather well on this wagon. Recent 225/70/15 front and 235/70/15 rear radials finish the look.

Documented with restoration receipts, this clean, ready-to-enjoy 210 wagon proves that practical can also be very cool. Call today!
