When the Danchuk Tri-Five Nats first appeared at Beech Bend a couple of years ago, it was a sleeper hit that saw classic GM cars roaming Bowling Green for a week straight. That’s no shock…sixty years on, and few machines carry as much overall presence as the Tri-Five Chevrolets. Buoyed by the combination of the Small-Block Chevrolet engine, styling that balanced 1950s Jet Age concepts with a dose of reality and affordability, the Del Ray, 150, 210 and Bel Air combined struck a chord with Americans that few cars ever have. It’s one of the few machines that even non-car types can easily identify, and still to this day lust after. Whether you have a thing for the Two-Lane Blacktop ’55, Mike Bilina’s nose-light 1956 machine, or a perfectly preserved and fully optioned 1957 Bel Air convertible for those late-summer cruises, there was something on the grounds for everyone. We have a huge spread of photos, ranging from street cars to rarities like this 1957 El Morocco coming up!
