1956 Chevrolet 150 Brochure
One of the hottest station wagons around, the 150 "Handyman"

1956 Chevrolet 150

“The Hot One is Even Hotter” was the motto that Chevrolet boasted for its 150, 210 and Bel Air series in 1956. With a new Super Turbo Fire V8, the new ’56 promised a friskier, sweeter ride with safer passing. Playing off the success of the previous year redesign, the new ’56 Chevy was met with an appetite of frenzy from the buying public. Chevy debuted its new pillar-less sport sedan to it’s top of the line Bel Air series and the mid-line 210 series. Minor changes were made to the ’56, including new engine options, a slightly different dash, a newly hidden gas filler cap in the rear fin, and colors, trim and fabrics. The '56 Chevy was a hit as sales continued to climb.
