1952 was the the last year for the popular Chevrolet series called Styleline and Fleetline. New for 1953 were Specials, Deluxe and Belair trim.

If its beauty you want take a look at the low, long, smoothly rounded lines of the 1953 Chevrolet! said one 1953 Chevrolet advertisement. See the superbly styled interiors and exteriors of its new Fashion-First Body by Fisher said another.

The 1953 Chevy was indeed new with the 150, 210 and Belair models as they were the most changed Chevrolet since 1949. Chevrolet stylist Carl Renner dressed up the 1953 bodies with fresh sheet metal, a revised C-pillar window and replaced divided windshields with one piece glass.

New styling details included lots of chrome such as a new chrome hood ornament or hood bird, nose nameplate or Chevy crest and a new grille. The grille can be described as a horizontal chrome bar with three vertical bullets and circular parking and turn signal light housings at each end. The grille was framed by a strong rounded chrome bumper along the lower edge and a hood bar of die-cast chrome on top.
