Pop your head into one of those cramped little stores on Canal Street and you will find ‘57 Chevy toys sitting alongside a mini Statue of Liberty, a 30 rock snow globe, the I Love NY T-shirts and a poster of Marilyn Monroe’s skirt blowing up. The iconic automotive shape goes together with American culture like peas and carrots. But the infamous shoebox design introduced in 55 and then again revised for 57 was wrapped around several firsts for Chevrolet at the time. Namely, it was the first year Chevy offered customers fuel injection and the Turboglide transmission.
How does the line go about how they used to make ‘em? Based on the pictures of this stunning American classic, you can probably figure it out.
