Unraveling the Might of a Supercharged 600-HP 1955 Chevrolet 454ci Two-Ten Two-Door Sedan


Nothing illustrates how well ’55 Chevys lend themselves to being altered that this Glacier Blue and Skyline Blue 1955 Chevy 210 (“Two-Ten”) Two-Door Sedan (usually called a two-entryway post). Bodies with two entryway ate mostly liked by hot rodders because of their racing relationship, as they were lighter and more unbending than hardtops.

Apparently the vehicle looks unique aside from present day haggles and a blower scoop staying through the hood. The scoop takes care of outside air to a 600-pull, 454-cubic inch supercharged enormous square V-8 supported by a Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 transmission and 9-inch Ford backside. This combo places a lot of heat in this exemplary dragster.

POWERTRAIN – The motivation comes from an iron-block 454 of mid-seventies vintage that was built by Gunther’s Racing Engines in 2015. It has a hydraulic camshaft and streetable compression, the seller reports it runs happily on pump gas. Aluminum Edelbrock cylinder heads and a Weiand 174 Pro-Street supercharger help boost horsepower past a claimed 600 threshold.

Other upgrades in performance include a Holley four-barrel carburetor with an electric choke, MSD ignition, exhaust headers, and turbo-style mufflers. The exhaust is tucked up neatly in the chassis to complement the car’s clean overall look. A high-capacity aluminum radiator with dual fans helps keep engine temps cool.

The Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 three-speed automatic transmission has a deep pan for added fluid capacity and cooling. The rear end is one of Ford’s famously stout 9-inch units.

INTERIOR – Inside this ’55, we get to see tastefully rolled and pleated black vinyl upholstery with button accents on original style bench seats.

The panels of the door were done to match. The back seat is full-width with ample room for friends and family. Hot weather won’t be a problem thanks to modern aftermarket air conditioning.

An AM/FM/cassette player with premium speakers provides audio entertainment. A wood-grained steering wheel is mounted in front of a huge Auto Meter 10-grand tachometer with a racing style shift light. An aftermarket shifter is mounted on the transmission tunnel. The trunk has a factory-style mat and a battery mounted in a protective case.

CHASSIS – Underneath the sheet metal we get a vintage 1955 frame with suspension upgrades that include performance shocks, traction bars, quick-ratio power steering, front disc brakes, and a 9-inch rear end.

The rear brakes are drums. Tall, rear Mickey Thompson high-speed radial tires and shorter front ones give the ’55 a classic, mildly raked stance. The polished 15-inch aluminum wheels are Weld Rodlites.
