No I hate the wheels but the car itself I really like. I wish it was a blue car though too.
Shane Carroll Jul 15, 2012
Not quite sure about those wheels. Looks like they should be sitting under a Camaro or Chevelle instead
Sam Hansen Jul 15, 2012

@Manny: They probably meant power brakes. (ABS - Antilock Braking System)
Manny Irizarry Jul 15, 2012
So this year didn't come with brakes? xD lol
Description: The Bel Air body style lineup also expanded with the addition of the new 'Sport Sedan' that went without B-pillars so that all four windows could be rolled down for a somewhat open air drivi...

Wait, isn't a sedan and 4 door hardtop the same?
Igor Natsioks Jul 14, 2012
Well, not exactly. Off one platform they made a lot of variations. Sounds like they are banging the buck and customers are overpaying.

This is what I love about cars in the 50s and 60s. You had one car that was offered as a coupe, sedan, wagon, V8, V6, convertible, high range of prices and luxury. The car companies really cared about the cars they released.
Description: When the third generation Bel Air debuted in 1958, not only did its overall dimensions increase, but it was the first production Chevrolet to feature a big block V8 as an option. The next year saw the...

I love the steering wheel
Dillon Dixon Jul 14, 2012
I absolutely love Tri-Five interiors. So much style and class for such an affordable car back then.
Description: The interior, also in remarkable shape, is decked out with the factory-type two-tone silver and black combo. Power comes courtesy via a Chevy V8 that was recently serviced with newly reworked heads, i...

Now that's a back end.
Paul Lissona Jul 14, 2012
The last cars to have that we're road masters in the 90's.
Logan LeMonnier Jul 14, 2012
That's where it seems most gas caps were then. On a fin or behind the license plate
Craig Lafey Jul 14, 2012
Above the brake light sorry guys
Craig Lafey Jul 14, 2012
It's under the passenger side fin about the brake light. The fin flips up and the gas cap is right there
Dillon Dixon Jul 14, 2012
I wonder how many people know where the gas cap is on this car. I would be very impressed if someone knows.
Dillon Dixon Jul 14, 2012
Love the steering wheel and the gauges. So stylish
