1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 Door Hardtop
The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air was the first of the Chevy “Tri-Fives”. Featuring the popular “shoe-box” body style, the ’55 Chevrolet Bel Air came equipped with the new 265-cubic-inch overhead valve V8, and 3 on the tree and optional factory overdrive.
The new 265 engine was a big success, and Chevy used it in the majority of their cars for decades in various cubic inch displacements. It is commonly referred to as the “Small Block Chevy” motor.
