As Seen on Craigslist – 1954 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

Once again, the siren call of a classic wagon has lured me into a figurative shipwreck of daydreams about dragging my family on a cross-country voyage in a vintage car.  While that is unlikely to ever come to fruition, I really like the copper-over-white color scheme, the clean interior, and the fact that the original 6-cylinder drivetrain is still present.  1954 and earlier GM cars have the benefit of basic parts availability but aren’t as cliched and overdone as their ’55 and later counterparts, and the fact that this one seems fairly original with a few tasteful modifications (the paint, the mag wheels, the 12V conversion) makes the asking price pretty reasonable.  Oh, the things I’d get in trouble with if it weren’t for the lack of time, space, and money to actually make them happen…
