YAK Car Pic of the Day

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

It wasn’t until I got up close to this 1961 Chevy Bel Air Sport Sedan (a.k.a. four-door hardtop) that I realized it wasn’t an Impala. Two reasons: you seem to see more of the “fancy” cars at car shows rather than the middle or bottom range models; and Chevy sold a ton more of the Impala than they did the Bel Air. I would imagine (as I couldn’t find any sales figures broken down by body style) that the four-door hardtop is was of the rarer Bel Airs out there; the ’61 model was the last one produced. This one was seen during the week at the car show held at The Texas Roadhouse in Tonawanda.

    That’s a particularly nice specimen you captured there, Jim. The only way I could tell this generation of Bel-Aires from the Impalas were the B-As had one less taillight.
