Work In Progress — This car sat behind a barn on the farm my brother and i grew up on when i decided to build a hot rod for my 13yr old son this car came to mind. My brother and i played in it when we were kids and dreamt of cruising in it. I went back and sure enough there she sat just like it was waiting for me to buy it. Picked it up for 500 and let the games begin.

Pros: This car has sentimental value and is in over all good shape for sitting outside in the same spot for almost 40 years

Cons: it has some rust and and enclosed drive shaft torque tube (will be upgraded)

Very Nice Car To Own And Drive — Overall the 1953 BelAir is great car for cruisin' and car show hopping. It is easy to find parts and one can do much of needed mechanical work. I would reccomend the Chevy BelAir for any car buffs. Enjoy the fun owning a collector car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Drives really nice, handles well on the road. Nice overall design.

Cons: A little slow with the inline 6 but it gets you there with no problems.

1952 Chevrolet Truck — Classic 1952 Chevy Pickup. Straight six engine, 4 speed tranny with a granny gear. Super sweet lines on this truck. Does not get good gas mileage, rides like a real truck (very stiff), wont go over 55 MPH, but who cares this truck is for fun. Turns heads everywhere.

Pros: Everything.

Cons: Nothing.

1953 Chevy Bel Air — The 1953 Chevy is a bulky car. It has the inline 6 with the speed manual. It runs and drives very well. the car needs work but picking up on its build quality I must say I am inpressed! The styling is OK, not alot of trim but has class. Not built for performance.

Pros: affordability, availability of parts, classic early 50's styling

Cons: not for performance, handling takes time to get used to

Teen Age Kid Thought It Was A Sports Car. By Fulcrum
