An Ode To The '50s Chevy Bel Air

In the '50s the Chevy Bel Air was at the top of plenty of car enthusiasts wishlist. You know what? It still is on the top of some enthusiasts list as well as it should. 

The Chevy Bel Air was brought to the world in 1956 and in every form from the coupe, the Nomad to the original four-door this car was smooth in every way. There is absolutely nothing like seeing the mixture of curves and sharp edges as they met for an incredibly bold design.

You could even customize the car to reflect your own personality from hot rodding to an everyday family car that would make you the envy of your neighbors.

  1. In spite of the enduring popularity of the triple five Chevys, in 1957 Ford outsold the full sized Chevrolet. Surprising.

  2. Bel Airs were made from 1950 through 1981. I worked on most of them and owned a couple.
