Hmm, a certain type of respect goes out to anyone who doesn't sweat garaging their classic.

Imagine how many decades of enjoyment have been enjoyed in this thing, what a story it must have.

This is not a Bel Air. I don't recall the lower line model names or numbers, but the Bel Air model was the top of the line offered in a 2 door hardtop or convertible only. This appears to be a base line business coupe, which was an unusual body style. Thanks, Pat

Sorry Patrick, my first car was the 1953 Bel Air, 2 door, with the post between the windows.
I know it was a Bel Air because it was on both sides of the car between the crome trim that ran from the blug at the front of the rear wheel to the rear of the car.
Mine was a 235, 3 speed manual. No radio.
I bought it when I was 17, ($250)from my stepfather's brother-in-law near Fort Knox, KY.
It was Sun Yellow with a White top.
I wish I still had it.

This is not a Belair . It is a 1953 business coupe ,very cheap bottom of the line . Had hardly any chrome around windows or trim . Salesmen used them as they had a much longer trunk and no back seat.
