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.
