Vehicle Story

This 1956 Chevrolet 210 Club Coupe is presented as a lightly customized Tri-Five two-door sedan with shaved door handles, modern gauges, and a tucked-and-rolled white vinyl interior. Powered by a 283ci small-block Chevrolet V8 backed by a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission, this Delray was modernized with front disc brakes and power steering. Originally produced at the Van Nuys, California assembly plant, a restoration and mild customization were reportedly carried out prior to the car departing the state and being relocated to Pennsylvania 2006. Painted in Dark Plum over a white vinyl interior, this 210 Delray is offered on a clear Pennsylvania title in the seller’s name.

This 210 was originally produced in two-tone Twilight Turquoise and India Ivory but reportedly went through a restoration and color-change sometime prior the car’s 2006 relocation to Pennsylvania. The finishes were resprayed at that time in Dark Plum and exterior body panels were modified to incorporate shaved door handles. The chrome and stainless-steel trim are reported to be in good condition aside from isolated areas of imperfections, and the carousel contains close-up photos of four specific exterior areas with cosmetic blemishes.

The 15” Cragar SS chrome five-spoke wheels are mounted to Mastercraft Avenger G/T tires. Power steering and power-assisted front disc brakes were added as part of the car’s restoration.

A two-tone black and white theme is worn with the interior featuring white vinyl upholstery for both bench seats and matching material used for the door panels. The lap belts, carpeting, and upper dash are finished in black, and an aftermarket steering wheel was added. A Panasonic AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo is installed at the passenger side of the instrument panel, and the trunk is lined with a rubber mat and contains the spare tire and associated jack equipment.

Factory gauges have been swapped for aftermarket units, and instrumentation is provided by a 120-mph speedometer as well as readouts for coolant temperature, oil pressure, voltage, and fuel level. A Sun “Super Tach II” 8,000-rpm tachometer was also added to the steering column. The six-digit mechanical odometer reads 16k miles, which reflect the distance driven since the restoration was completed.

The 283ci small-block Chevrolet V8 is equipped with 327 heads and is capped off by a chrome air cleaner assembly. Power is fed to the rear wheels through a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and a Ford 9” rear end with positraction. The seller indicates that the transmission has a tendency to disengage from 4th gear if the shifter is not held in place.

Photos showing the underside are available in the carousel, and the seller adds that while some of the images appear to show wet surfaces, the undercarriage is reported to be free of leaks.

A little DEL RAY history: The Chevrolet Delray, named after the Delray neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan, debuted in 1954 as an optional trim level on two-door models of Chevrolet's mid-range 210 series of cars. In 1958, it became a distinct series of its own at the bottom of Chevy's lineup (replacing the discontinued 150), and added a four-door sedan, and sedan delivery, but it only remained in production for that model year. For the Tri-Five years the Delray was essentially an interior option package for the plain 210 two door sedan. It featured an upgraded vinyl upholstery with "waffle-like" pleating, color-keyed to the exterior, along with carpeting and other minor upgrades. 1956 engine choices remained the same from 1955 except for higher hp ratings. The 265 V8 could now be had in three different configurations. The I6 had a new unified build no matter the transmission. Engines 235 in³ "Blue Flame" I6 rated at 140 hp (104 kW) 265 in³ "Turbo-Fire" OHV V8 rated at 170 hp (127 kW) 265 in³ "Turbo-Fire" OHV V8 with quad-barrel carburetor rated at 210 hp (157 kW) 265 in³ "Turbo-Fire" OHV V8 with dual quad-barrel carburetors rated at 225 hp (168 kW) Transmissions Three-speed Synchromesh manual Three-speed Synchromesh manual with overdrive unit Two-speed Powerglide automatic Wikipedia

I think a qwik review of what a DEL RAY is would have been appropriate.
