A lesser-known footnote in the Tri-Five lineup.
Before the Chevrolet Delray became its own trim level for 1958 (just a single model year), this name was used as a trim level on the Chevy 210. Named after Delray Beach in South Florida, the Chevrolet Delray used on the Tri-Five Chevys (1955 to 1957) helped spice up the interior with a unique pattern on the seats color matched to the exterior.
This particular 1955 Chevrolet Delray listed for sale by Classic Auto Mall has been completely restored, but it is still has the same India Ivory and Onyx Black two-tone paint scheme that a factory car wore. This paint scheme, along with the chrome trim, hubcaps and white wall tires makes this Delray about as elegant and low-key as a Tri-Five Chevy can get!
Inside is where the real difference between a standard 210 and the Delray is obvious. Looking like the tile floors of a Florida beach house, the interior of the Delray received an exclusive waffle-shaped pleating on the seat bottoms, seat backs and door panels. To match this car's black-and-white exterior, this Delray features black squares with white piping and large, white trapezoidal swathes on the seat backs.
While most of the car is stock, the sole exception is the floor mounted chrome Hurst shift handle and cue bal shift knob. Although the '55 Chevys offered a V-8, this Delray is still rocking its original 235 CID Blue Flame inline-six engine making this a smooth, easy crusier.
Bel Airs and Nomads might be the most popular of the Tri-Five Chevys, but this 1955 Chevrolet Delray will definitely get attention at car shows. This beautiful Chevy Delray is currently listed for $29,000, but you can also make an offer by clicking HERE.
