Learned on a 56 Chevy Belair with 3 on the tree. Cool car. Wished I still I still had it. 1966.
That was the first year after the "big fins era" wasn't it?My first car was a '61 BelAir with 3 in the tree. The first time it broke down dad held up a $20 bill and said, "You can use this for bus fare or parts and if you buy the parts I will teach you how to fix it."
59 and 60 had the wings. I had a 59 convertible with a 283 and 3 speed on the column. It was red interior and exterior with a black top. I wish I had that car today. I saw pictures of one 2 years ago totally restored and it was valued at $50,000 and I paid $750.00 in 1965.That was the first year after the "big fins era" wasn't it?
