Timing is everything and when anything is done, at the right time, the results are powerful. Evidently the ‘right’ car for the hardtop was Chevrolet’s Bel Air of the mid-to-late ’50s.
The 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air is among the most iconic American cars of all time. Roomy, fuel-efficient, and with artistically limited use of tail fins and chrome it is truly a classic of America’s automotive past time.
Going into 1955, the Bel Air received a new design. From 1955-1957 the Bel Air evolved. The 1955 model’s styling was elusive, but clean. The ’57 model was much more ostentatious. Those looking for a balance would lean toward the 1956 model. The ’56 was the wonderful balance between the basic styling of the ’55 and the more flashy lines of the ’57. Unique two-tone bodyside treatments and graceful front and rear wheel openings completed the “speedline” restyling.
