1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible: Arguably the world’s most popular classic car, the 1957 Chevy was a basically a carry-over from the highly successful 1955 and 1956 models. Minor changes included a wide chromed grille, rear tail-fins, and new dashboard. Having both performance and great looks, the 1957 Chevrolets were immensely popular. After hearing that rival Ford would have an all-new full-size model for 1957, there was concern at Chevrolet. Although GM executives wanted an entirely new car for 1957, production delays necessitated the carry-over of the 1955 design for one more year. Ed Cole, chief designer for Chevrolet at the time, orchestrated the minor face lift, including the new grille, hood rockets, and front bumper bullets. A relocation of air ducts to the headlight pods resulted in the classic chrome headlight bezels. The face-lifted Chevrolet was ready for sale by October 1956.
