1953 Chevrolet 150

The new ’53 Chevrolets promised NEW features and Improvements everywhere. Touted as one of the greatest advancements ever presented by Chevrolet, the new ’53 boasted to be stronger and the mightiest most powerful yet built with the new Fisher Unisteel construction, high-compression engine, and rear axle. Other impressive features such as key-turn starting, added shoulder level width (both front and rear), New Foot-Form brake pedal, and a One piece curved windshield just to list a few. The all new 150, 210 and Bel Air series were greeted with much enthusiasm and deemed the "Hot Ones”.
