BEL AIR 4-DOOR SEDAN – OCTOBER 14 (1958)
Chevrolet again offers the popular Bel Air series in 1959. This model maintains its reputation for styling interiors and appointments, with increased passenger room and additional visibility in new compound windshields and larger rear windows.
Both two-door and four-door sedans incorporate the venturesome new design features, plus improved brakes, suspension system and handling advancements. The Bel Air models, like all other 1959 Chevrolet bodies, will feature a new acrlic paint finish, said to hold its brightness for up to three years, under normal conditions.
