Overview

This book examines the history and legend surrounding what have become three of the most beloved years in Chevrolet’s history. Anthony Young’s technical and design history is illustrated by 175 images including black and white factory photos, ads, and Mike Mueller’s stunning color photography—a beautiful book for all fans of the classic Tri-Chevys.

In the early 1950's, as now, a car was one of the ultimate expressions of American status and independence. And Detroit's Big Three were locked in a continual battle to win the hearts and income of America's car buyers.

Until 1955, that is. The Hot One, as Chevy's 1955 ads called it, really was. In one model year, Chevrolet managed to wipe away its stodgy, stovebolt reputation with a new car that was utterly unlike its staid 1954 offering. It was as if Pat Boone had become Elvis Presley overnight.
