The Chevrolet 210 was the predecessor of the Chevrolet Biscayne. The first generation car featured a 235 cubic inch, straight-6 engine and incorporated the overhead valve design. The 1954 210 was also the last time a Chevy featured the 6 volt electrical system.
Not only has the 1954s Chevy become an iconic car, it’s a favored classic with hotrodders – and as a consequence it comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. The beauty of this means that customizers – with the imagination to do so – can create some outrageous and seriously cool designs.
A brief look at the influence of the 1954s Chevy
Samuel Cernuto has put together a video featuring some of the greatest, here are my favorites:
Wow, look at the styling on this one! I love the double grille front and all that chrome trim. It has a radically futuristic look and really makes a statement.
This one has also taken on the futuristic style, that one-eyed look at the front is a little creepy but it gives it a unique spaceship look. If that’s what you like… (Plus I love the wheels)
This one is perhaps a little more traditional than the first two, but pretty smart all the same. The rear wheel well has been covered and I am really diggin’ the flash of pink down the side.
Check out the outrageous wheels on this one. Personally I like the white strip down the middle. It works great in contrast to the red.
These two are quite similar. They’ve both got the super low suspension – I highly suspect this is an air system – and a bold paintwork that really compliments that chrome trim. But they still have that great vintage look.
Personally, I’m one for these awesome paintjobs. I love the unique design, it’s almost tribal but when you’ve got it in two tones like the one on the left, it really does something for the car – spices it up a little and makes it stand out from the crowd. Win win.
Although if I’m completely honest with you, there were just too many cars in this video to choose the best ones…so here I’m gonna show a couple more that I liked:
