|First offered in 1953, as Chevrolet renamed its model line-up and offered the new Bel Air, 150 and 210. In 1955, Chevy restyled its full size line-up with crisp clean lines, the new 150, 210 and Bel Air were greeted with much enthusiasm and deemed the "Hot Ones”. The '55, '56, and '57 models are among the most recognizable American cars of all time and remain an American icon, highly collected to this day. In 1958 Chevrolet dropped the 150 and 210 names and redesigned the line-up to be broader, longer and heavier then their 1957 predecessors. Again, the Bel Air remained Chevrolet's top model range, followed by the newly renamed Biscayne (formerly the 210) and the Delray (formerly the 150.)
