Chevrolet's Hot Ones 1955, 1956, 1957by Anthony Young, Mike Mueller
Introduced as a hardcover in Spring 1995, this softbound edition offers a lower-cost version of the colorful book that examines the legend behind the three most-beloved years in Chevrolet history. In one model year, Chevy wiped the slate dean and produced an automobile that managed to vanquish a staid and stodgy image. The 1955 model featured a new chassis powered by a brawny V8 and dressed out with a thoroughly modern body. America loved it.
Author Anthony Young teams with photographer Mike Mueller to look back at the three-year span from 1955 through 1957, when Chevy twice refined an already popular automobile. Marvelous modern color and archival black-and-white photography accompanies a narrative text examining the Tri-Chevys in all their glory, including the engineering advances they introduced to the motoring world (i.e., the small-block V8 and fuel injection) and the myriad luxury options they dangled before eager post-war consumers (i.e., plush upholstery and air conditioning).
