The 1953 Chevrolet’s had a new, more powerful engines and a redesigned body. The new cars looked fresher and more modern than the somewhat outdated 1949-52 models. They did however have more than a passing resemblance to their predecessors.
The Series’ names had been changed and this 1953 Chevy Two-Ten Club Coupe was sandwiched between the entry level One-Fifty and the better appointed Bel Air.
While the Two-Ten didn’t quite match up in terms of side decorations with the Bel Air the two-tone paint still made these cars look special.
Also new for ’53 were one-piece curved windshields which really helped the new cars look more modern. It was also the year that power steering was first available on Chevrolet’s – something that was previously reserved for more luxurious cars.
Inside the Two-Ten enjoyed cloth upholstery with this car benefiting from a $65 optional push-button AM radio. Also present in the center is the optional tissue dispenser.
Under the hood is the 115 horsepower “Blue Flame” six, 235 cubic inch engine
Chevrolet sold 23,961 Club Coupes for the 1953 model year at a base price of $1,726. A total of 649,821 Two-Tens were sold across all models in the line-up that year. The biggest seller by far was the 4-door sedan.
