The 1955 to 1957 Chevrolets are truly some of the most iconic collector cars of the hobby. They were sold and have survived in large numbers and with demand still there, they have an active market. Fuel injected Bel Air Convertibles represent one end of the market. A 150, six-cylinder four door sedan, like the car here represents the other end of the spectrum.
There seems to be some confusion on the seller’s part as to whether it is a 150 or 210. It is clearly a 150 in the photos and a simple check of the serial number would confirm this (an A as the first character would indicate the 6-cylinder 150). The original black paint shows very well in the photos, consistent with the claimed 41,000 original miles.
It’s great that the six-cylinder engine has not fallen victim to a V8 transplant in all the years of its existence. The engine compartment has the right level of age to be authentic (though an NOS or correct reproduction radiator cap is in order).
The interior looks the part as well but there is some water damage to the driver’s door panel. The broken side glass is an easy fix. Because this is the base model six-cylinder, this car represents perhaps the cheapest way to get into an original, unrestored 5-6-7 Chevy market. Find it here on eBay in Greensburg Indiana with active bidding but the reserve not yet met.
