1954 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door Sedan

"New beauty is only the beginning. There's much more power. Much finer performance. And new economy, too - with money-saving gas mileage. In every way, this 1954 Chevrolet is the finest ever."

Intensive colors and tropical sunlight render some amazing reflections onto this 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air. Introduced in 1953, the short two-year lifecycle of the lineup found it's culmination -as the catalog noted- in "new front- and rearend design, massive new bumpers extending even farther around the fenders and many other styling advances." Anyway, Chevrolet already concentrated it's forces in the development of the famous next generation. In the background you see the 1956 Bel Air. Just two years time between these two cars show the big steps of in automotive styling during this time.

Generally satisfied with it's 1954 Chevy, an owner from Trinidad told us: "The car still runs 90-100 kilometers per hour easily, but you need to pay attention to keep it straight on the road. And you need friends, if you want to keep the car running. The liquid motor-oil that they sell today just leaks out of the engine. So I need to go to Havana from time to time. There a friend has access to the dense oil that the army uses for their tanks and other military vehicles..."
