Chevrolet Two-Ten Sport Coupe
Dealers introduced the 1953 Chevrolet on January 9th of 1953. Almost every 1953 hardtop was a Bel Air, but it was possible to order the base 210 in a hardtop. Only 12% of all hardtops were 210 models, and only a few survive today. This car has had a complete cosmetic restoration, with outstanding paint, chrome, and stainless trim. It is believed that the 33,000 miles on the odometer are correct, and it retains the original, excellent upholstery, due to the presence of its original plastic seat covers. The entire drivetrain has been rebuilt, resulting in smooth, quiet operation. Fully detailed, the engine compartment sparkles like new. As a show and cruise-ready Chevrolet, this would be the perfect example to take center stage at a national meet.
108 hp, 235.5 cu. in. overhead valve inline six-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, independent coil spring front and semi-elliptic leaf spring rear suspension with semi-floating rear axle, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 115 in.
