Vintage Ride of the Week: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air

1955 Chevy Bel AirThe “all new” 1955 Chevrolet was offered with “Motoramic” styling, improved handling and a new V8. Chevrolet matched smooth handling with it’s new performance by modifying the chassis to be longer, and added wider rear springs riding outside the frame rails, diagonally mounted shock absorbers to match, and an improved “Glide Ride” suspension. America took to the new 1955 Chevrolet 150, 210 and Bel Air (From OldRide.com, which has more information).

  1. Kent,

    Love this car. I wonder who told you where it was?

  2. Well, we both know you tipped me off to it (thanks). FYI, it isn’t on 3rd Street, its on Marlboro which is one of those quirky 1 block streets seemingly tucked in at random.

  3. I have owned my 1955 Chevy just like the one in the picture since 1964. It has been stored at some other people’s house. I still have the title,and I’m hoping to be able to retrieve it. With their permission of course.
