In the year preceding 1955, the Chevrolet 210 Del Ray Club Coupe underwent a meticulous renovation, executed by its previous custodian. The enhancements included a vibrant crimson repaint and the integration of a robust 350ci V8 engine coupled with a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle’s interior showcases an elegant combination of black and red leather, and is equipped with an assortment of features such as a Lokar shifter, a cassette stereo, an Edelbrock intake manifold, a Holley carburetor, a dual exhaust system, and 15-inch Cragar S/S wheels. Before its acquisition by the current seller in 2023, this automobile had resided in California and subsequently relocated to Canada under former ownership. Recent improvements have encompassed touch-ups to the paintwork, a carburetor overhaul, and the addition of an electric fuel pump and a new heater core. Presently, this 210 Del Ray Club Coupe is available for purchase in Canada, accompanied by the latest service records and a British Columbia registration marked with a rebuilt designation.

Originally coated in hues of blue and beige, this car received its lustrous red finish around 2005, as per the selling dealer’s account. Following an engine fire in 2023, the hood, firewall, and dashboard were meticulously repainted by the selling dealer. Further refinements include chrome-finished mirrors, bumpers, and trim, alongside tinted windows and blue-dot taillights.

Adorned with 15-inch chrome-finished Cragar S/S wheels wrapped in 215/60 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, the coupe is outfitted with power steering, while its stopping power is provided by four-wheel drum brakes.

The interior of the car is an expanse of sophistication with front and rear bench seats swathed in black and red leather, harmonizing door panels, and black carpets. Enhancements include a Lokar shifter and an auxiliary cassette stereo, with a newly replaced heater core in anticipation of its new ownership.

A chrome-trimmed three-spoke steering wheel encapsulates a 110-mph speedometer and indicators for fuel level and coolant temperature. A tachometer clings to the steering column, and a set of aftermarket gauges nest below the glove compartment. The five-digit odometer registers 23,000 miles, of which approximately 200 miles have been accrued under the stewardship of the current owner. The total mileage remains unconfirmed.

The 350ci V8, installed circa 2015, benefits from an Edelbrock intake manifold. Recent enhancements by the seller include a rebuild of the Holley carburetor and installation of an electric fuel pump in 2023, along with an oil change and engine tune-up. Post-fire renovations were also applied to the firewall.

Momentum is conveyed to the rear wheels via a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission, also installed in 2015.
