The BelAir name has a special place in automotive history and had 7
generations of styles spanning from 1950-1975, 8 generations if you
count Canadian produced cars which kept the BelAir name going all
the way until 1981. These are great cars and the 4th generation was
only produced in 1959 and 1960. This generation had a complete
redesign with wide horizontal rear fins, a longer wheel base and a
much less boxy look than the previous years. This look would set
the tone for the new look of the 60s. This 1960 4 door BelAir is a
very neat car because it is a true survivor. It was originally sold
out of Independence, Missouri and based on some of the decals on
the car remained there until at least 1978. It has been kept all
original except for a few minor things. The Red paint is all
original as is all of the body panels, etc. The owner has purposely
left it just the way it is due to it being a survivor. He has owned
the car for 8 years and when purchased was told that the 35,000
miles were original. The chrome and stainless all looks good. This
year had the dual taillights and dual headlights up front which are
all working properly. The car rides on a set of Red wheels with
original hubcaps which are wrapped with wide white wall tires.
Getting those wheels rolling is its original date correct 6
cylinder motor. It utilizes a new carburetor, new water pump, new
gas tank, and new radiator to keep it running cool. In 2005 the car
had a full tune up with new plug wires, new exhaust, new plug
wires, new rotor, new condenser, new brake hoses, new heater hoses,
rebuilt wiper motor, 4 new shocks, and new wheel cylinders.
Everything works on the car. Combined with the motor is a 3 speed
manual transmission that shifts well. The transmission and rear end
has also been fully serviced. It drives down the road well and
The interior is where you will find some of the changes from
original. The seats have been recovered in Gray cloth upholstery
which is in good shape. The headliner and carpet were replaced in
2005. The dash is all original and painted Gray. It is in good
condition and topped with all of its original trim, gauges, and
radio. All of it works including the radio which is pretty cool to
see. It has its original steering wheel and utilizes a column
shifter. The trunk has all the storage space you could ever ask for
and the Black felt was redone in 05. The pan is solid as is all of
the floors. The trunk houses a matching spare and the original jack
This is a really nice driving survivor and in addition to the car
it comes with original manuals, books and a binder with some
receipts and even some 1960 BelAir advertising with the tagline "If
you can't be happy with this car, you just can't be happy."
