Without a doubt one of the icons of 1950s collectibles. The Tri-Chevys of 1955 to 1957 offered something for everyone: two- and four-door sedans, hardtops, wagons, a snazzy convertible, and even a stylish and sporty two-door wagon called Nomad. From the entry-level 150 to the mid-pack 210 to the top-of-the-line Bel Air, Chevrolet had all the bases covered. Styling was all new, and buyers had a choice of eight engines. Bodies were 1.5 inches lower than in 1956, though the wheelbase remained the same at 115 inches. Chevrolet switched from 15-inch to 14-inch wheels, attributing to the change in height over the earlier models. “Sweet, Smooth, and Sassy” was how Chevrolet described the year's beauties.
Surprisingly, one of the most sought-after cars of the post-war era was not the industry best-seller when new. With few exceptions, Chevrolet outsold its rival in the 30 years after Ford stopped producing the Model T. But pushing a third-year to restyle against dramatically new Fords and Plymouths caused Chevy to slip to number two in sales for 1957. What the company brought to the party was a performance in the form of an enlarged 283 V-8 with available Rochester Ramjet fuel injection. Chevy trumpeted its “one horsepower per cubic inch” engine available on even its least expensive models. The “Fuelie” engine added $500 to the price tag, nearly one-fourth the price of the car; the cost of that performance was well worth the price.
