Pros

My particular car has the original 327 small-block under the hood, which gives a nice balance of power and fuel efficiency. The car is very roomy in both the passenger compartment and the trunk. While the V8 makes quite a rumble, it can barely be heard from within the passenger compartment; very quiet ride.
This may be a heavy car, but it practically glides over bumps in the road.

Cons

The only downside that I find is that some parts are rather difficult to come by these days. Even so, I've managed to find every part that has needed replacement, and at affordable prices.

A Perfect Blend Of Beauty, Performance, And Economy — I am absolutely thrilled with this car. This is a car that won't let you down as long as you take care of it. Sure, it was in a small fender-bender at some point during its life, and the cheap paint a past owner put on it is tacky at best. Even so, I love the styling of the car. The curves which billow out around both wheel wells are an elegant touch that you'd be hard-pressed to find on any modern automobile, and the typical late '60s quad headlights and tri-pointed chrome nose of the car look downright aggressive. Despite the fact that the car weighs two tons, the V8 pulls it along smoothly and effortlessly. If you drive with the windows rolled up, all you will hear from the engine is a dull roar, if the car still has the stock muffler. Even on rough or bumpy roads, this Bel Air gives a nice, smooth ride. Typical of older vehicles, the 1969 Bel Air can be completely disassembled with a phillips head screwdriver and a good ratchet set. Because of this, anything short of engine or transmission work can be done by the average Joe in his own garage. The '69 Bel Air was originally rated at 12 miles per gallon in the city, but I've found that even with a 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission and the stock Rochester 2-barrel carburetor, I can get upwards of 15 MPG on a regular basis if I take it easy. The power steering in this vehicle is the smoothest I've ever felt, even after driving much newer (and smaller) vehicles for friends or family. My car wasn't ordered with power brakes, but even so, I've had no trouble stopping when I needed to. Even on the worst days out on the road, heat buildup never got to unsafe levels while braking, and there was no noticeable pedal fade. All this, and it only cost me $900!

Amazing Ride — The car looks mean from the front grill all the way back to the rear fender. Chrome fenders and emblems. Gas mileage was better than what you would expect from such a big car. Has been in the shop very few times for maintenance. The cars performance was unimaginable. It accelerated beautifully with a wonderful muscle car sound. Its a beauty to drive.
