1955 Chevrolet 210 news, pictures, specifications, and information
The Chevrolet 210 came standard with rubber floor mats, vinyl upholstery for station wagons, wrap-around stainless steel windshields, chrome-plated bumpers, door handles, lamp rims, wheel bum center caps, hood ornament, and grille. On the interior was a glove compartment light, cigarette lighter, armrests, and ash receptacles.

The 210 was Chevrolets mid-priced vehicle and offered in a variety of body-styles including two and four-door sedan and station wagons. The most popular of the Two-Ten Series was the four-door sedan with seating for six which cost $1819. The most expensive was the four-door station wagon which had seating for six. This would set the buyer back $2130.

The Chevrolet 210 was powered by a six-cylinder 235.5 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine which produced just over 120 horsepower. An eight-cylinder unit would raise the horsepower to over 160. The three-speed manual gearbox was standard with a Powerglide two-speed automatic unit being offered as optional equipment.
Sport Coupe
The 1955 Chevrolet represented a watershed in the history of General Motors. It was the first of the now legendary 'Tri-Five' Chevys, and was brand new in styling, engineering and sales image. With their first successful V-8 engine, these Chevrolets were intended to directly compete in a market dominated by Ford for the past twenty years.
The Chevrolet 210, also written as the Two-Ten, was produced from 1953 through 1957. The car served as a replacement for the Styeline DeLuxe model Series and did so in fine fashion, becoming Chevrolet's best selling model in 1953 and 1954. The base Chevrolet model was the 150 and the 210 followed its example yet offered its customers a little more in styling, options and mechanical capabilities. They were available in a variety of bodystyles, capable of satisfying most customers needs, demands, and desires.

The 210's sales were beaten by the popular BelAir in later years, even though the 210 had some similarities and offered at a lower cost. The luxury amenities found on the BelAir could be added to the 210, a feature not available on the 150.

The Two-Tens were powered by 235 cubic-inch engine from 1953 through 1955. Horsepower ranged depending on the gearbox selected. As the years progressed, the horsepower increased, reaching 136 in 1955. For 1955, a second engine came available, a 265 cubic-inch Turbo-Fire V8 engine rated at 162 horsepower. A three-speed synchromesh manual gearbox was standard on all Two-Tens, with a Powerglide offered as optional equipment.

For 1956 the 235 cubic-inch engine was rated at 140 horsepower, with a 265 cubic-inch unit rated at 170-225 horsepower available for an additional cost. For 1957, the 235, 265, and 283 engine was available. Power ranged fro 140 through over 280.
