When you were a kid, did you ever dream of being a fireman? With this 1955 Chevy 210, you can be the Chief! This extremely low-mile four-door 210 has had a mild restoration, as that was all that was necessary on this minty Fire Chief special. With just over 27,000 miles, and a lifetime of inside storage combined with fastidious maintenance, this 210 is a true time capsule.
The exterior of this Chevy 210 Fire Chief special has glossy red paint, brilliant chrome, and well-polished stainless trim. It wears matching painted steel wheels, with shiny “dog-dish” hubcaps, and modern radial rubber. The iconic chrome jet hood ornament is as new. It is equipped with a passenger fender-mounted Federal Sign and Signal siren and light, a roof-mounted Federal Sign and Signal “gumball machine” flashing light. All of the lights are said to be working. Both doors are festooned with Cedar Rapids, Iowa Fire Rescue badges, and a period-style whip antenna is mounted atop the driver’s side rear fender with a clip holding the end mounted in the rain tray above the driver’s door.
Inside this Chevy 210, you will find a black and ivory bench seat with matching door panels which present quite well. The carpet is in similar condition, with little sign of wear or fading. The dash and steering wheel are the same glossy bright red hue as the exterior of the car. Mounted under the dash on the passenger side is a period-correct Motorola emergency radio and speaker. On the rear deck behind the rear bench seat is another flashing light.
Beneath the hood of this Chevy 210 resides a smooth-running Blue Flame inline six-cylinder producing 136 horsepower, backed by a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission. The tidy engine bay is largely original, although wiring for the emergency equipment is visible. It’s a mildly restored Fire Chief fleet vehicle that is believed to have less than 30k original miles.
Fulfill your childhood dreams of being able to drive the Chief’s car (and run the light and siren!) with this wonderful 1955 Chevy 210 Fire Chief’s special offered by Classic Car Studio for just $29,900.
