    In 55 Chevey offered the Corvett, Nomad, Bel Air, 210, 150, Station Wagon and Sedan Delivery.
    The most popular would be the two door hard top Bel Air.

    in the 55 bodystyle they had a 150, a 210, and a bel-air. The bel air is the chrome, all the trim, etc. The 210 didnt have the side moldings, but had all the front and rear trim, and the 150 I believe was called a businessman coupe. I mean the 150 sunvisors were options, and some were ordered w/ just the drivers side option. You will have a hard time finding a 150. Most have been atleast bumped to 210 status, and if its already restored/whatnot its probably a belair.

    They also had a nomad(2dr) (I believe you could get a 210 or a belair trim package), a panel wagon(2dr, based on the nomad), and a stationwagon(4dr).
