1955 Chevrolet 210

History

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 body styles, capable of satisfying most customer's 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 a 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 from 140 through over 280.
