About the Car
The 1955 Chevrolet (sometimes referred to as ‘55 Chevy) is an automobile made by the General Motors division Chevrolet in 1955. It was available in three models; the 150, 210, and Bel Air.
The ’55 Chevy was a turning point for the manufacturer, as the first successful Chevrolet with an optional V8 engine. Though Chevrolet had produced an earlier car with a V-8, the 1918 Chevrolet Series D using a 55 horse power, 288 cubic inch V-8, it had remained in production for only a year; the 55’s looks, power and engineering made it a critical success.
