For sale I have a 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air, 4-door sedan.
This 50 year old classic yank tank has only 89037 original miles.
Under the hood is a 327 Cu.In. 5.3L V8. The engine is mechanically sound. It idles & purrs along exactly like an old school chevy should. A delight to the ears.
The powerglide transmission shifts through the gears nicely. It's a cruiser.
The exterior is straight, & has had a fresh coat of paint from it's previous owner, with minimal defects. A few bubbles & stone chips etc.The chrome overall is in good shape for its age. Needing some pitting work.
The interior overall is in great condition again for its age. Upholstery is in top condition. Some steering column parts could be replaced for improvement, if of a bother.
Serviced when required, with most reciepts for the work been done over the last 5 years.
Living in Brooklyn, NY. It's been my occassional weekend cruiser. With an endless amont of headturners & stopping to ask questions.
Although, due to new work commitments I now need a daily driver. The old beast, I couldn't do that too.
It's an old part of history that's truly been a dream to drive!
Hopefully someone else can genuinely appreciate & enjoy this extremely fine looking machine as much as my partner & I have.

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Tue, 01 Oct 2013 11:01:00 EST
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them.

That's giving headaches to marketing folks across the automotive industry. "It's tough. In 1985 there were about 75,000 names trademarked in the automotive space. Today there are 800,000," Chevrolet's head of marketing, Russ Clark, told Automotive News. Infiniti's president, Johan de Nysschen, echoed Clark's sentiment, saying, "The truth of the matter is, across the world, there is hardly a name or a letter that hasn't already been claimed by one car manufacturer or another. You can go through the alphabet - A, B, C and so forth - and you will quickly see that almost all available letters are taken."
What has that left automakers to do? Get creative. In the case of Infiniti, it made the controversial move to bring all of its cars' names into a new scheme, classifying them as Q#0 for cars and QX#0 for SUVs and crossovers. So the Infiniti G, which was available as the G25 and G37, is now the Q50. The FX37 and FX50 are now the QX70.
Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises.
