'59 Chevy Bel Air

Bel-Air four-door hardtop sedan added as mid-year offering in 1959. Also shown is locally-owned 1960 Impala convertible. Though the 1959-60 Chevrolets had wider bodies than their 1958 counterparts, they rode on the same X-frame chassis as the '58s so the wheels were tucked well into the body, which was a great contrast from that year's "Wide Track" Pontiac which used the same basic bodyshell as the Chevy but with the wheels spread out almost to the width of the body.
