With wild paint job and delightfully fun tail fins, the 1955 Chevy Bel Air defined the culture of the Nifty Fifties. Considered a signature model of the Chevrolet brand, Bel Airs were available in convertible, hardtop, sedan, and station wagon body styles suitable for the swinging bachelor or nuclear families. When you think of the classic family car from this era, you think of one with a white hard top, fins, and bright colors. Part of the second-generation series of Bel Airs, you can find a number of these 1955 models on eBay with a longer chassis, diagonally-mounted shocks, and improved suspension featuring coil springs. It was also the first to offer air conditioning with dual vents in the dashboard. The V8 engine puts out 170 horsepower and goes from zero to 60 miles per hour in about 12 seconds. It is a little slow to get going, but speed is not the reason to own a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. To purchase a gently used Bel Air is to buy a little piece of the glory days.
