The year was 1965 and I purchased a 1956 Chevy Bel-Air 4 door in the same colors as the one pictured above.
It was a nice ( not quite as nice as the one pictured) car and I paid $300 for it. It was a 6 cylinder with a 3-on-the-tree. I paid $65 down and the payment were $27 a month. I had spent the summer in California and saved a little money from a job I had washing dishes at a cafe. As usual I hitchhiked back and saved my money. I made the down payment and used my SS check ( from my deceased dad) to make the payments.
A week after I bought the car I made my second trip to California that summer. My brother George was going back in the Army and he and I carried his wife back home to California.
This was the car I drove my senior year and boy I had a great time in it. Enough said!
