In Scottsdale, Arizona, the renowned auction house Barrett-Jackson is gearing up for its annual event in January, and Chevrolet 210 enthusiasts are in for a treat. The lineup of extraordinary cars going under the hammer seems to be growing, and one notable addition is the Butterscotch Pearl beauty, aptly nicknamed Scorch.

Scorch stands out not only for its striking color scheme but also for the painstaking work that went into its creation. It took a dedicated team eight years of meticulous craftsmanship, employing a “frame-off, full nut-and-bolt, rotisserie” approach. And now, with only 15 miles (24 km) on the odometer, it is ready to find its new owner.

This 1955 Chevrolet 210 was specifically designed as a show car, destined to captivate audiences with its immaculate presentation. Powering this beauty is a 350ci engine, whose precise power output remains undisclosed, mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. The car glides on 18-inch Torq Thrust II wheels, perfectly matching the body’s color to create a visually stunning effect.

The exterior of Scorch boasts chrome accents, polished stainless steel elements, and various emblems, all meticulously placed to enhance the vehicle’s aesthetics. Beneath the meticulously restored bodywork lies the original frame, subtly upgraded with a heavy-duty sway bar, a rear shock relocation kit, and 4-wheel power disc brakes.

The attention to detail continues inside the 210, where no compromise was made in creating a truly exceptional cabin. The dashboard, painted to match the exterior, houses Classic Instruments gauges, providing both functionality and style. The leather seats exude luxury and comfort, while the original-style 15-inch steering wheel adds a touch of nostalgia, reminiscent of the classic Chevys from decades past.

The seller proudly describes the 1955 Chevrolet 210 Scorch as a multiple award winner, having claimed prestigious titles such as the Best Custom and the Mid-America Gold Cup at the 2021 World of Wheels in Omaha. To add even more appeal, the car bears the signature of renowned automotive designer Dave Kindig.

Like many other remarkable vehicles being auctioned in Scottsdale, this 1955 Chevrolet 210 Scorch will go without reserve. While the owner’s desired selling price remains undisclosed, one thing is certain—this masterpiece is destined to find a deserving new home, where its rarity and artistry will be appreciated for years to come.
