Forgetting the mechanical contrasts, I still prefer the staid looks of
the '53-54 Chevy. It was big enough for the family, small enough to (carefully) maneuver, and it did not intrude onto the eyes and other senses. The '56 upper series Chevies seemed at that time to have too much chrome, too many angles, too many gadgets (like the gas cap lid under the tail light), and more. Chevies? I had a '51 that I could count on, and years later had a '60 that was also dependable.
