Description 1955 CHEVROLET 210 V8 Manual amazing rust free body. Uk registered + MOT exempt

1955 Chevy 210 saloon. Original unmolested V8 manual car with genuine rust free chassis and floors. 

I bought this car a year ago myself in the states from a guy who had owned it for 30 years. He told me its been garaged all its life and it had been dry stored a few years at the garage at his house prior to me buying it.


Body ; The car is amazingly solid. She has rust free floors i cant see any evidence of her ever being welded or needing any. Everything is solid metal. She hasnt even been under sealed so you can see exactly how original she is. The paint is a rather old job i guess done many years ago in not such a fetching brown which i have grown to quite like but shes a nice straight car so a fresh paint job shouldnt be too involved. 


Interior : The interior was re done some years ago. It is still generally in really nice condition and a two tone brown and gold. There is some slight warping on a couple of door panels but they are still very nice and presentable. 


Mechanical : The car is the original 265ci V8 so im told. The previous owner says the engine had been rebuilt and only covered a few thousand miles before he put it away but i have no proof of this. Since i got the car ive rebuilt the carb and given it a general service with some fresh plugs, leads, oil etc. I also fitted a new handbrake cable. The gearbox is an original manual 3 speed column change which is pretty rare with the V8. Im also told its an overdrive box but at the moment the operating cable seems to be stuck so ive not got as far to seeing if the overdrive works or not. The exhaust is a single system with a silencer thats normal sounding volume but the pipe that goes over the axle got bent during transporting so i took that off so it will require a new rear pipe or a side exit extension at some point.


The car is fully uk registered and MOT exempt. She appears to run and drive nicely and she always starts up no problem to move her around but as yet ive not really taken her any long distances.


These Tri Chevys are becoming increasingly rare and expensive both here and even more so in the states and rust free examples rarely come up at all and surely will only rise in value. All spares are so readily available they must be one of the most sensible american classics to own.


I have too many cars and projects so Im sorry but im not interested in any swaps or a px. The car is located near Dover Kent. Please dont waste my time if you dont have the money or have to ask your other half if its ok. Any questions please ask ill upload more pictures next day or so.
