Looking Back at 1955

The year of 1955 will be remembered as a banner year for the auto industry. A record number of cars were built and almost every company made a profit and scored record sales. Chevrolet was no exception. The combination of a powerful new small block V-8, sensational styling, and an unprecedented sales year made 1955 a landmark in Chevy history. In 1955 Chevrolet manufactured a then record 1,830,029 vehicles.

The design and engineering of the 1955 Chevy were entirely new, and had much to do with the company's performance. Its first production V-8 in more than 35 years was a bold and successful answer to Ford in the performance sweepstakes. Chevrolet's grille and rakish two-toning highlighted all new sheet metal, which was singular and unmistakable. Record production insured that quite a few of those cars would still be around a quarter century later. In fact, Chevrolet's record output of over six million cars in 1955-57 means that enough survive today for collectors to enjoy what, to them at least, will always be the "classic" Chevy.

Styling, GM knew, had plenty to do with a car's sales. Harley Earl's Chevrolet design team-Clare MacKichan, Chuck Stebbins, Bob Veryzer, Carl Renner-worked un- der Earl's famous guideline: "Go all the way, then back off." Earl encouraged far-out designs as the clearest way to develop new ideas for production. Naturally the 1955 car didn't reach production looking the way it did in early renderings, but it wasn't all that far off. The beltline dip and wraparound windshield had been inspired by the Cadillac Eldorado, Olds Fiesta, and Buick Skylark limited.
