Greetings, I hang in the 61-64 forum as I have a 61 bubble top. However, thinking about buying a 55. Keeping the bubble top of course. I want a Bel Air post car. The thing I really like is the chrome molding along the top of the door and quarter window, just below the roof line. I am assuming that is an exclusive to the Bel Air and if it doesn't have that, it's not a true Bel Air? My question is if that molding is available after market?

I believe that is a Bel Air only item. I don’t know if it is available aftermarket. If the car is a true Bel Air the VIN will start with a C for a six cylinder car and VC for a V8 car. A or VA was a 150, B or VB was a 210, and D or VD was for a sedan delivery.

Friends don’t let friends drive Fords.

Yes,the stainless mouldings your are referring too are used exclusively on the BelAir and used on all of the Tri-Five cars.
