In 1959, Chevrolet elevated the Impala's status, making the Bel Air the mid-level model.

The 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air with its advanced hardtop styling plus fresh and finely shaped contours was All New All Over Again said one General Motors magazine advertising.

What General Motors and Chevrolet meant was that the 1958 Chevrolet had new styling compared to The Hot One's and the 1959 Chevrolet was new all over again.

The Bel Air series had model script and crest on the front fenders. Bel Air moldings ran full length and had painted inserts. Another enrichment was front fender top ornaments. Standard equipment was the same as the Biscayne plus some deluxe features such as foam seat covers and a deluxe steering wheel. However, the best and pricey accessories were installed on the 1959 Chevrolet Impala
