The new body style in 1953 was the most changed Chevrolet in five years. Singer Dinah Shore, Chevrolet's TV spokesperson in those days, introduced it as "a glamorous new star."  Stylist Carl Renner dressed up the old bodies with fresh sheet metal below the belt, one-piece windshields (replacing twin-panes), and a prominent oval grille whose three vertical "teeth" provided a familial resemblance to the forthcoming Corvette sports car.  On the mechanical side, Chevrolet scrapped its smaller "Stovebolt" six and adopted the 235.5-cubic-inch "Blue Flame" 6 cylinder unit for all models. The "Blue Flame" 6 featured over head valves, hydraulic lifters, full pressure lubrication, and aluminum pistons.  Higher compression boosted it to 115hp with Powerglide.  Bel Air interiors had a massive expanse of chrome across the lower part of the dashboard, along with a deluxe Bel Air steering wheel with full chrome horn ring. Carpeting and full wheel covers rounded out Bel Air standard equipment.
