1953 Chevrolet DeLuxe 210 Series

The 1953 Chevrolet 210 was the Deluxe level and sold for about $100 more than their 150 Series siblings. The 210 received its name designation from the first three digits of numerical series code. The Two-Tens had horizontal lower belt moldings that ran from the front to the rear. There were chrome windshield and window moldings, rocker panel moldings, and bright metal rear gavel guards with short spears near the top. Inside, the 210 Series had a two-spoke steering wheel with horn ring, cigarette lighter, dash panel ashtray, dual sun visors and 39-hour stem wind clock. Interior door handles had bright metal inserts in the black plastic knobs. The front seats had foam rubber seat cushion pads, and armrests. The sedan and coupes had rear armrests and the four-door sedans had a rear compartment ashtray. The two-door sedan and coupes had one ashtray in each armrest.

Bodystyles included a 2- and 4-door sedan, a Club Coupe, Sport Coupe, Convertible, and a 6- or 8-passenger station wagon. For 1953, the 'Sport Coupe' became known as the 'Club Coupe', and the convertible was only around during the first half of the year.

The six-passenger station wagon was called the 'Handyman' and featured a folding second seat. The eight-passenger station wagon was called the 'Townsman' and it had three seats with the second and third seats being stationary, but could be removed if needed. The 'Townsman' was dropped in 1954, along with the Sport Coupe.

Option equipment included heaters and radios. Pricing began at $1700 for the 2-door sedan and rose to $2,275 for the 8-passenger wagon. The most popular bodystyle was the 4-door sedan which saw 332,497 examples produced. 5,617 were convertibles and just 7,988 were the 8-passenger station wagon.
