The 1955-1957 Chevrolets, also know as the “Tri-Five” generation, remain one of the most iconic car lines of the 1950s. While the ’57 version usually steals the show, many enthusiasts prefer the cleaner trim and styling of the 1956 version. If you fall into that camp and have always had an interest in building a station wagon version, this primer-colored four-door 210 station wagon originally listed in October 2020 on Craigslist in Berlin Center, Ohio may be what you are looking for. A project car in need of a lot of attention, the current caretaker has it listed for $6,200 with a picture of the trim tag indicating this originally was a pretty two-tone combination of India Ivory over Matador Red with an Onyx interior.
