TONAWANDA, N.Y. – This 1967 Chevrolet Bel Air was at the opposite end of the spectrum of yesterday’s RealRide, its corporate cousin the 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix. While the GP was pretty high-end, the Bel Air was this close to being at the bottom of General Motors’ full-size car heap (only Chevy’s Biscayne was plainer, as seen below in a brochure illustration). But, the Bel Air still had the same styling cues of the more expensive Chevys, some of which they described thusly on the brochure pages for the Caprice and Impala:
“…the sweep and sculptured styling of new fenders, hood, deck lid and roofline… the wide wraparound grille… newly styled hubcaps.” Some politically incorrect copy for the Impala went on to mention how “…the distaff side will particularly like the roomy interior.” The distaff side?! Good grief you guys. And I’m pretty sure they were guys. How the times have changed.
