In 1962, Chevrolet offered four distinct car lines, the European-inspired compact Corvair, the brand-new American compact Chevy II, the performance-oriented sportscar Corvette, and the full-size passenger car line that seemingly lined the streets of America.

In fact, except for the door panels, all of the sheet metal used on Chevys full-size cars was completely new and this new design philosophy really took the look of the full-size Chevys from the 50s into the 60s. The front end treatment was flatter and boxier than the previous years design, incorporating a new-look grille and headlight housing. The side profile was also modernized with new body lines and now featured a full length side trim with a color-contrasting insert.
