Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS


This is a 1950’s classic. The Chevy Bel Air is a fabulous design.  This example wears its California “black plates” from the early 1960’s and has been maintained with pride and love since new.

This Bel Air was originally sold new in Flint, MI, and almost immediately was driven out to California where it has been since.  It is very original except for a repaint that was performed many years ago and is in very nice condition.  The green and white two tone looks very nice on this four-door sedan body.

The interior is largely original with only the seats recovered in a closely matching material.  There is a nice patina to this Chevy that makes it look almost entirely like a pristine original.  The chrome and stainless are in nice condition and the glass is in excellent condition.  The original AM radio is complimented by a modern AM/FM CD player tastefully hidden in the glove box, out of view.

The odometer reads about 100,000 miles and service history shows about 70,000 miles in the 1970’s.  This is a low mileage example.

Mechanically, the Bel Air features Chevy’s very robust and dependable straight six cylinder engine and features the PowerGlide automatic transmission.  All mechanical aspects of the Chevy are in nice shape.  It drives as it should and would be a very nice daily driver or weekend cruiser for the family!!  This is a motorcar to enjoy as-is.

It is rare to find a California, rust-free original Bel Air still with its six cylinder engine.  This is a wonderful example.  For more details please call Harry at 602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.

Chevrolet Bel Air

Interesting Fact: Even though the Chevy Bel Air was produced from 1950 to 1981, for the first two years of production, the Bel Air was only a two-door hardtop. However, the Bel Air name was expanded to other models until 1975 when production ceased in America. The Chevy Bel Air was still produced in Canada…
Interesting Fact: Even though the Chevy Bel Air was produced from 1950 to 1981, for the first two years of production, the Bel Air was only a two-door hardtop. However, the Bel Air name was expanded to other models until 1975 when production ceased in America. The Chevy Bel Air was still produced in Canada through 1981.   The Chevy Bel Air set a new standard for automobile design by originally having a non-detachable solid roof. This new model saw tentative success with only 76,662 models produced at $1,741 (roughly $17,000 today). A tested Chevy Bel Air had accelerated from 0 to 60 in 19.6 seconds, which was respectable for muscle cars of the day. As production continued over the years, Popular Mechanics reported that the Bel Air’s 0 to 60 time was improved to 12.9 seconds via a newly implemented V8 engine. This model was featured in the 1973 movie American Graffiti as driven by Harrison Ford. This helped the Chevy Bel Air to become the popular classic that thousands across America enjoy driving everyday!
