1950 Chevrolet Bel Air - Ecklers Early Chevy
Chevrolet Bel Air was firstly introduced in 1950 and it was produced until 1975. In the middle of the 20th century, the manufacturer offered a revolutionary style that would set a pattern for decades.
The Bel Air Hardtop was styled as a convertible with a non-detachable solid roof. There were a lot of early models like this, but they weren't appreciated. However, the customers liked the new style a lot and Bel Air had quite huge success.
1950 Chevrolet Bel Air came out with independent front suspension. The car cost "just" $1 741 and weighed 1463 kg (3225 lb), which was very light compared to other vehicles from the same era.
The Bel Air has a wide chrome strip of molding from the rear fender bulge, to the rear bumper. The interior also featured a lot of chrome for example on the lower part of the dashboard, and a de luxe Bel Air steering wheel with full chrome horn ring.
There were two engine choices, depending on the transmission ordered.
More than sixty years passed since, the first Bel Air came from the production line, so finding parts or upgrades for such cars is a bit tricky. There are companies, which offer some parts for early Chevys, but you can find almost anything for your car at Ecklers Early Chevy.
However, if you cannot find specific part, you can always contact Ecklers.
