RealRides of WNY (on the road) -          1963 Bel Air

Lucky for you if you’re an old car and get to live out your days in a place like Killeen, Texas, which is where my daughter Katie and I came across this 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air back in 2013 when we were returning home after she’d finished her stint in the U.S. Army. Yes, it’s surrounded by weeds (not to mention a few other old pieces of iron), but it’s not likely to rot into a pile of rusty dust anytime soon. Of course, years from now you may not be able to tell that yes, once this Bel Air was Cordovan Brown, because its paint will probably be faded into next Tuesday. Hmm… seeing that it’s now going on seven years since we last saw this car, I wonder if it’s still there? Or has someone rescued this “ — proven favorite… with its tasteful good looks, refined luxury and easy-to-handle price.”  That price was easy-to-handle back in 1963. At least as Chevy told us. Today? Probably not so much!
