The Chevrolet Beauville was originally a station wagon option for the 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air. The name was later resurrected as a full-size van option for the Chevrolet Van in 1970. Both were related to the lower trim level Chevrolet Townsman.


In 1954 Chevrolet introduced the 4-door Beauville Wagon as an option for the Bel Air Line. It came standard with a 6-cylinder engine and featured woodgrain trim around the side windows.


In 1955 the 4-door Beauville Wagon came standard with a 6-cylinder engine or a V8 mated to a manual transmission.

In 1956 the Beauville became a wagon option for the Chevrolet 210 as well.

Chevrolet Station wagons offered a wide variety of engines rated from the 140 bhp (100 kW) 6-cylinder to the 225 hp (168 kW) V8.

One base engine Chevrolet offered in 1956 was a 235.5-cubic-inch (3,859 cc) 6-cylinder engine with a cast-iron block and a compression ratio of 8.0:1. It was carbureted, with a Rochester single barrel carburetor and produced 140 brake horsepower (100 kW) power at 4200 revolutions per minute. Another base engine offered by Chevrolet in 1956 was a 265-cubic-inch (4,340 cc) V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor with 162 brake horsepower (121 kW) at 4400 rpm.

In 1956 two other 265-cubic-inch (4,340 cc) V8s were offered but both had a 9.25:1 compression ratio, 4-barrel carburetors, and a dual exhaust. The Turbo-Fire 225 engine was equipped with 2 Carter 4-barrel carburetors and produced 225 hp (168 kW) at 5200 rpm while the Turbo-Fire 205 engine had a single 4-barrel carburetor with a peak 205 hp (153 kW) at 4600 rpm.


In 1957 the Beauville station wagon was not offered in the Bel Air line, only in the 210.
