1957 Chevy 210 - Imperial Pearl
This '57 210 Might Look Like It Came Off The Reels Of American Graffiti, But It Has More Bite Than Milner Could Ever Dream Of.

On the outside, Michael went with PPG two-stage Dusk Pearl and Imperial Ivory paint. James Ash from Ash's Auto Body applied the non-factory color choice but stressed the ability of the scheme to appear as if it came right off the showroom floor. In a world of classic restorations and Pro Street rocketships, its refreshing to see an automobile that goes outside the box and merges the two.
All in all, Mahan and company spent six years trying to get back that the 14-year-old kid that just wanted to drive his 210. Now, he and his daughters can enjoy a beautiful piece of Chevrolet history that cannot be overlooked. The unique vision of a Pro Street dog dish appeals on many levels and that attraction boiled up with a Procharged small block make this Tri-Five one bad hot rod. Look for Michael and company in the Boston area ringing this puppy out on the highway.
