1955 Chevrolet

1956 Classic Chevrolet - Accessories

Sponsored Links

Options continued to play a big part in Chevy's success.

In 1956 General Motors offered over 50 accessories on their 1956 Chevrolet.

Seatbelts were offered for the first and were a bargain at just $10.95.

Add a shoulder harness for only $9.95 as Chevrolet was pushing safety.

The list of accessories also included a Cadillac style automatic head lamp dimmer for $44.25 and a remote control door mirror for $6.95.

Air conditioning was still a luxury for most mid-fifties buyers, but Chevy helped make it less so by reducing the price of its "Four-Season" system by a sizable $135.00. Although, at $430.00 it was still pretty pricey. Radio choices expanded by one, ranging from $63.50 for the basic manual tune set to $105.00 for the pushbutton signal seeking unit.

Power windows and power front seats were up $10.00 each to $155.00. But power steering still cost $92.00 and power brakes were a bargain at $38.00. Among low cost accessories were trunk and under hood lamps at $1.95 each, a visor vanity mirror cost $1.60 and a non-glare rearview mirror was only $4.50. Choose a foot operated windshield washer for $6.75 or you could add a automatic windshield washer for $9.95. Obviously there were plenty of accessories to promote and Chevrolet wanted its dealers to blitz the message as loudly as possible.

Probably the most unusual new accessory offered on the 1956 Chevy has to be the automatic top raiser on the Belair Convertible. Two others were the front fender top molding and the Kool Kooshions. One item that was an option on the 1955 Chevrolet, an oil filter element, was now standard on most engines.
