General Information

I took delivery of my first trifive in October of 1956. It was a 57 2 door post BelAire V8 Power Glide. India Ivory over Inca Silver. Interior was Matador red with red and black upholstery. I traded a 1954 Chevy BelAir 4 door for it.

Total price including financing was $2800.00.
