'55 Chevy 210 Sedan - Just like the '70's bro

Recommended Posts

If the only thing you had added were the slapper bars, we would still have known she was from the seventies.  In Australia, they were often red, and highly frowned upon by the local coppers.

Sometimes, simplicity is best!

A perfect 70's time capsule.

Tunnel ram and over carbed? Check.

Spring shackles? Check.

Slapper bars in customary eye catching yellow? Check.

Front bumper delete? Check.

Autometer gauge package, functionality optional? Check.

Hooker headers and no exhaust system, neighbors furious? Check.

Big block (cuz small blocks are for wusses) with Morosso dress up kit? Check.

Cragar SS and some wide tires in the rear? Check.

As I said, a perfect time capsule. This car could have been seen in any town, on any street when I was growing up. I love it.

Actually, the only thing missing maybe .............................. hood pins. Those knuckle heads put them on everything back then.

Terrific work. I dig it.

Thank you! I struggled with hood pins...I have some photo etch ones I might throw on still.

A little late to the party but this is bad ass! The 70’s epitomized. When I saw the air filters poking through the hood I knew it was gonna have a tunnel ram and the gold Moroso valve covers are a must. The Cragars. The yellow traction bars. Hell yeah! I also love the dark green. Definitely not a stereotypical Tri-5 color choice.
