The Classic Industries team has been at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas all week, walking through the aisles and looking for the coolest cars and trucks to share with you. Today, we came upon this absolutely jaw-dropping 1956 Chevy 210, and knew we had to snap some photos. Its shocking orange paint and glistening chrome sparkled like a beacon in the Nevada sunlight, drawing us in to get a closer look.
This tri-five features a full frame-off restoration, as well as a number of performance and visual modifications. The first thing you'll notice is its bright orange metallic paint—ChromaPremier Sunset Orange, to be exact. Looking under the hood, you'll find a modern LS engine fitted with custom valve covers and a
hand-formed sheetmetal air intake, both paint-matched in the same shade of orange. The Chevy's sweeping wheel arches are filled nicely by five-spoke Schott billet wheels and large Baer disc brakes. Small touches, such as the chevron emblem on the trunk with an integrated third brake light, also really help to set this car apart from the rest.
This '56 210 is an incredible blend of timeless style and modern technology, and that's why it was one of our favorite cars at the show this year. Stay tuned here on our blog (and on our Facebook page) for more updates and photos from SEMA 2014 in the
