Reading the short description of this 1957 Chevrolet 210 Two Door Coupe we found here on Craigslist in Binghamton, New York for $22,000 validated why we created Guys With Rides; its a perfect example of the current loving owner being more concerned with finding the next caretaker at a fair price than sending it off to an unknown highest bidder. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a Guide, the caretaker of the past 39 years has his 210 priced at $3,000 above the #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) value of $19,000.
Here at Guys With Rides, we truly believe there is “A Story Under Every Hood” and here’s a short and sweet one to remind you that the car hobby is often a family affair:
“Available for viewing at my home…beautiful ’57 Chevy for sale. My dad and I bought this car 39 years ago. I drove it quite a bit as a teenager. Since then it has been restored. The engine is the original 283, 2 speed automatic. It runs good. I took it for a drive the other day but it mostly just sits in the garage. I would like to see it go to someone who will pay more attention to it.”
We can’t even begin to imagine the stories under the hood of this 210 dating back to 1980, let alone all of the memories gathered in the 23 years prior to that. We love seeing this 210 two door post coupe has been to restored to what we assume is original condition as most of this body style over the years was the one preferred by hot rodders and racers alike.
We also would like to see this lovely ’57 Chevy go to someone who will pay more attention to it. Good luck with the purchase!
