1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Two Door Hardtop
1956 was the second year of the "Tri-Five" Chevrolets which were completely redesigned in 1955.
The 56 Chevy was again 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 and four 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.
A 235 cubic inch inline six-cylinder engine with 140 horsepower was standard. The 265 cubic inch small block V-8 was upgraded to 170 horsepower, and could also be had in 205 and 225 hp versions.
1956 Chevrolet Key Differences
Key differences of the 1956 Chevrolet include a full-width front grill, unique tail lights, hood ornament, 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.
