Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

Chevrolet c. 1956

56 chevy woman kid

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a 1956 Chevrolet 210 series, 2-dr sedan. The middle child of the now famous Tri5s (Tri Fives, 1955, 1956, 1957) line and also the middle child of trim levels that year. That year, Chevrolet offered the economy 150 series, the 210 (here) and the top of the line BelAir. So this poor car is the middle child of the middle child. Problem child on 4 wheels, no doubt.

  2. My first car was a brand new 1956 150. it was two toned cream over green. It only had a sun visor over the driver’s seat. The AM radio was extra as was the heater. It was a six cylinder straight line and one day it was stuck in first gear and I had to drive back to the dealer that way over 10 miles. All the mechanic had to do was pull up a lever under the hood and it never happened again.

    My dad traded in his 1955 BelAir for my down payment and he got another BelAir (1956 model). I made the payments on the car to the bank while I paid him back for the down payment. Fond memories!
