YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

.

When this 1953 Chevrolet Two-Ten two-door sedan left the factory, I’ll bet it didn’t have many (if any) of the optional add-ons seen on this black example. Like the fender skirts, outside rearview mirrors, chromed front fender shields, or the chromed tailpipe extension — maybe even the full wheel covers and the (too-skinny-for-the-era) whitewalls. The 210 was the in the middle of the ’53 lineup, between the ritzy Bel Air and the lowly One-Fifty. My Dad had a Bel Air sport coupe (two-door hardtop), which you can see below. Today’s Pic car, which was for sale when we passed by, was spotted a few weeks ago in Elma.
