Just because Chevrolet was the most popular brand of General Motors that it ever got neglected, and this in the mid-1950s, it enjoyed a revival to bring back a more youthful and dynamic image to the brand. The Bel Air, which took its name from one of the most prominent neighborhoods of Los Angeles, received the panoramic windscreen then very popular other side of the Atlantic, and car was distinguished by a large rectangular mesh grille, which was quite sober. The mechanicals was also completely new, and the design was by Ed Cole, the V8 specialist, who had already developed the V8 block for Cadillac. The construction of the car was relatively traditional, with a frame on which was bolted a steel hull made by Fisher.
