10 Classic Chevrolet Emblems We Love

Sporting a distinctive emblem can set your custom classic apart from the rest. Here are a few of our favorite classic Chevy emblems to inspire you.

1. 55 Chevy Hood Emblem

Though nobody knows for sure, legend has it William Durant, co-founder of Chevrolet, saw the distinctive bowtie emblem on a wallpaper in France. He tore off a piece and later used it for Chevrolet. Today, the logo is easily recognized and is immortalized in emblems like this one for a 1955 Chevy. And if you ask us, it hasn't aged a bit.

7. Impala Fender Emblem

When the SS Impala debuted in 1961, it was a true performance car that could get up to 405 hp. This emblem harkens back to days when Impalas had a little more muscle in them and looked just as sleek.

8. Longhorn Bed Side Emblem
