1949-1954 Fast Facts

 The 1949-54 models must be considered watershed designs for Chevrolet. They symbolized the swift design and engineering advances being made after the war, and also marked the arrival of the new Thomas Keating administration with its optimism about Chevrolet's future as "USA #1." Ahead lay several years of consolidation and rising production, but relatively little innovation. One exception to this rule, however, was the handsome Bel Air hardtop of 1950. There was a perfect rationale for what the postwar industry called the "hardtop convertible." True ragtops were great-about 10 percent of the time. After the war, the advent of better roads and higher speeds made open-air driving even less practical, yet almost everyone who had ever watched a Hollywood movie agreed that the convertible was the most stylish and entertaining way to go motoring. How then to achieve both sportiness and comfort in one car? The answer was the hardtop-convertible.

The 1950 Chevy was changed only slightly from '49: two strong vertical chevron-design grille bars were now mounted below the parking lights, and a crescent-shaped "wing" was attached to the hood emblem. Fastbacks continued under the Fleetline label in both Special and DeLuxe trim. Notchback sedans and coupes, plus a wagon, convertible, and the Bel Air made up the Styleline series. The Bel Air sold for $1741, about $100 less than the Styleline convertible, but some $250 more than the Sport coupe.
In construction the Bel Air looked exactly like other Styleline models from the beltline down. Convertible-type frame reinforcements were used to make up for the loss of rigidity due to lack of a "B" pillar. A small amount of flex in the doorpost area was typical of these early hardtops.
