1955-1957 were watershed years for Chevrolet, and the cars of these three years (in particular the 150, 210, Bel Air, and Nomad) became known as the Tri-Five. In terms of styling, and mechanically, these cars were revolutionary in their day and they spawned a cult following. They remain some of the most popular cars for collectors and enthusiasts. A popular view is that the styling increasingly chased the Cadillac market with the exaggerated tail-fins and chrome bumpers. If asked which is the better looking car, the 55, 56 or 57, it’s hard to answer but for me, maybe the 55 two door hard-top or the 56 Bel Air convertible. OK, choosing two is cheating but hey, what can you do?
