Chevy Bel Air Sport Coupe: 12th & Franklin – Astoria, Oregon

August 5th, 2010 by Emir

Perhaps one of America’s most easily recognizable automotive shapes, the Bel Air is about as patriotic as hot dogs, baseball and cheating on your income taxes. This well-maintained ‘56 coupe sports a tasty cinnamon and cream two-tone paint job and looks fantastic pictured here on Franklin Street in Astoria. Chevy made a pillarless 4-door sport sedan version of the Bel Air during the same model year, but I think the coupe is where it’s at. By the way, someone really needs to bring back hood ornaments as a colorful alternative to the recessed, less is more badges placed on hoods today. This one looks like a soaring eagle that mated with a jet airplane…awesome.
