An everlasting battle between Ford and Chevrolet for supremacy in the medium priced segment was at its height in the mid-50s when Chevrolet presented the legendary “Tri-Five” series. Those cars got that nickname since they produced this body style for three years, from 1955 to 1957. So, people started calling them “Tri-Five,” and the name stuck.
One of the biggest features of the iconic Tri-Five series is the legendary Chevrolet small block V8 engine. It brought power to the masses and gave those ’55 to ’57 Chevrolets some serious performance to go with their everlasting style and chrome fins.
