The 1956 Chevrolet 210 had simpler side trim than the Bel Air models. A single spear running from the front fender ran through the door and sweeping down across the rear fender. The spear was joined to the beltline dip by a short vertical trim. The two tone paint scheme on the 1956 Chevrolet Two-Ten Models were totally different to that used on the Bel Air models. The roof and sides below the trim were painted one color.
While the upper side, trunk and hood had a contrasting color. A small piece of trim ran between the spear point and the front fender opening. This trim separated the two colors. The big news for Chevrolet in 1956 was the introduction of the four door hardtop.

Two-door hard top sales were very good prior to 1956 and General motors hoped more of the same thing with the new 1956 Chevrolet Two-Ten Sport Sedan and 1956 Chevrolet Belair Sport Sedan. 20,021 units were produced at a cost of $2200.00.
