We love this 1955 Chevrolet 210 Handyman wagon, because just like the Nomad, it’s cool two-door styling is rare
But as you look over the ultra-slick paint, custom A/C interior, six-speed, and whopping fuel-injected V10 power, you’ll realize that this classic is in a class all of its own.
This Chevy is out to be the impressive aggressor. The Lavender paint begs to be shown in the sunshine, thanks to the huge luster that only comes from investing in the modern paint and a professional hand applying it. Of course, it helps that you’re looking at a build that has only about 600 miles on it since completion. And like any good 1950s machine, this one carries plenty of mirror-like brightwork. Up front it’s the distinctive ’55 Chevy grille and wraparound bumper that launched the legendary Tri-Five era. Plus, the way the dual side trim meets in the doors really highlights the straightness of the sheetmetal. Crystal clear-headlights, tinted windows, and a color-matched sunshade make for nice added details. And just to remind everyone that this classic means business, there’s a great set of 17-inch Billet Specialties wheels.
The interior is a fresh investment in comfort and style. It starts with the seats. You have two-rows finished in supple leather. The two-tone presentation unites a coordinated package with the door panels, headliner, and dash. It’s tastefully done with the AM/FM/CD stereo, ignition, and controls for the R134a air conditioning hidden in the central glovebox. There’s also power windows, and the custom center console has built-in cup holders. That makes a wagon like this the perfect machine to carry around plenty of family and friends. And of course, the large cargo area means it’s easy to carry everyone’s luggage or even all the car show supplies. But the best treats are reserved strictly for the driver. You get the artful steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, power steering, full digital gauges, and a terrific Hurst floor shifter.
The engine bay is likely to win you awards all on its own. You have smooth color-matched inners walls, and even the valve covers are done in purple, too! Plus, the mirror-like shine on the full intake system really reminds you of how fresh this build is. And the reason for such a premium showcase is that this Chevy now has fuel-injected 8.0L V10 power from a Viper! This adds some serious muscle, and the power is firmly in your hands thanks to the Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission. As you look over the full and fresh build, you’ll also spot more performance upgrades. This includes the tubular A-arm front suspension w/adjustable coilovers, grippy ZR-rated tires, and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes.
