The 1950s were the age of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, and poodle skirts, but they were also a time of impressive new car designs and attractive, flashy exteriors. Corvettes, Cadillacs, Bel Airs, and more symbolize this unique time in our country's history as America was making a comeback after World War II. The cars from the 50s not only represent the style of the time, but also embody the American spirit. Adding a 1950s model to your diecast model car collection is a great way to celebrate automobile history all while making your collection even more attractive and enviable.
The 1957 Chevrolet Corvette was the new and improved version of the 1956 model. While it looked mostly the same, the interior had superior features. The Chevrolet Corvette was a sophisticated racing car with a new body and an attractive design. The convertible top and power windows made this vehicle a stylish option, while the 4-speed manual transmission and 290 hp made it a great choice for speed. The small-block V8 engine with a constant flow GM-Rochester injection system made this one of the fastest commercial vehicles of its time – in fact, it was one of the first to reach 1 hp/in3.

The 1955 Chevy Bel Air is the second of eight generations of Chevrolet Bel Air vehicles, distinguished from its counterparts by a Ferrari-inspired grille.

While the car had a few less than favorable characteristics such as a partially blocked speedometer and a penchant for burning through too much oil with the V8 engine, the Chevy Bel Air was a classic 1950s vehicle known for its uniquely fashionable design, comfort, and speed. The 1955 Bel Air could go from 0 to 60 mph in 12.9 seconds.
