Chevrolet introduced a restyled two-door Bel Air Sport Coupe in 1956. Designed by Harley Earl and engineered by Edward Coles, the car features a wide variety of colors and new color combinations, recessed headlights and updated rear wheel openings. Other changes in the 1956 Chevrolets included a newly designed grille and front fenders, side trim, and taillights that concealed the fuel filler.
The Detroit automaker offers consumers a choice of six-cylinder or V8 engines in the Bel Air Coupe. The 1956 Chevrolets feature the 265-cubic-inch Turbo-Fire V8 engine in 170 horsepower with an automatic transmission, 162 horsepower with a manual transmission, and 205 horsepower and 225 horsepower versions. Chevrolet couples the engine choices with transmission choices between the three-speed Synchro-Mesh, its standard offering, the Touch-Down Overdrive and Powerglide. The rear-wheel drive Bel Air sold for about $2,100 in 1956.Learn more about Buying & Selling
