I recently came across this sweet looking ’68 Chevy Bel Air on the website, www.ChevyHardCore.com. As I mentioned in a recent blog post, I’m a function over form kind of guy. While this Bel Air is an example of both Form and Function, the Bel Air model is a basically down to earth, no-frills (or low-frills) model and this car is just that, a bare boned example of a car meant to go fast. With the exception of the 8 track player, most of the options are about acceleration only. If it doesn’t support that goal, it’s not needed.
Another thing I like about this car is that it’s roomy. I like big cars and I’ve owned several GM B-bodies over the years. This Bel Air is no exception. It’s a full width people mover with a truck that could carry a Prius.
It also has one of my favorite combinations, a bench seat and a manual transmission.
