1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Two Door Hardtop
1955 was the first year of the "Tri-Five" Chevies, a complete redesign of the full-size Chevrolet line. It also saw the introduction of Chevy's now famous small block V-8 engine, which initially had a displacement 265 cubic inches and produced 162 to 195 horsepower. An inline six cylinder engine of 235 cubic inches and 136 horsepower was also available.
The 55 Chevy was available in three models, the 150, the 210, and the Bel Air. They came in four-door and two-door sedans (a B-pillar at the rear of the front door), two door coupes (no B-pillar), two-door convertibles, or as four-door or two-door station wagons. The two-door Bel Air station wagon was known as the Nomad.
1955 Chevrolet Key Differences
Key differences of the 1955 Chevrolet include a narrow (not full-width) front grill, unique tail lights, and different side chrome trim.
1955 - 1957 Chevrolets share the same basic design with slight body and trim variations from year to year. Each year is distinct enough to be easily identified.
