1963 Chevrolet Bel Air: Affordable classic daily driver

In 1963, Chevrolet marked a major milestone with the production of its 50 millionth car, a momentous occasion commemorated by the selection of a 1963 Impala Super Sport as its symbolic vehicle. The event attracted widespread attention, with New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller personally driving the milestone car from the Tarrytown assembly plant.

Recently, an opportunity arose for car enthusiasts when a 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air showed up on Craigslist. Despite lacking the prestigious Impala tags, this Bel Air presents itself as a viable option for those looking for a reliable daily driver at a more affordable price.

This special Bel Air is in running condition, the six-cylinder engine is operational, but does require brake work. The owner provides a conversion kit for the front brake.

Despite the engine’s lack of appeal compared to an Impala, the Bel Air’s body appears to be in good shape. For a daily driver, it is essential to check for solid floors by inspecting the underside.

The owner also has the missing upholstery and a rear passenger door, which aids the restoration. Priced at $4,000 with a clean title, this Bel Air could attract someone looking to convert it into an Impala clone due to its low cost.
