The Tri-Five Chevy legacy began with the development of the completely redesigned 1955 Chevy, available in 150, 210, and high-end Bel Air trim levels. There was also a wagon version of the Bel Air called the Nomad. The crown jewel of the Tri-Fives was the brand-new 265ci V8 engine with OHV high-compression, short stroke design, bolted into a rear wheel drive chassis. 1955 also marked the year that Chevy adopted the "shoebox” styling of their cars. Gone were the rounded, bulbous hood and side panels of previous years. Instead, flatter and sleeker lines swept the full length of the car inching towards the tailfin styling seen in GM’s Cadillac brand.
