This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

1955 Chevy Bel Aire Convertible by Dr Pixel

Updated Dec 6, 2008 to work with Numenor's Drivable Cars without NightLife game add -on. I also improved the convertible top cover.

The recolors are not changed, they will still work with the new mesh.

This is a drivable vehicle, it REQUIRES the NightLife expansion pack

Doors and lights work correctly, but I had to disable the WooHoo "fog" effect.

Sims can still WooHoo and Makeout, but there will be no animation -

they will just fade out, make some noises, and fade back in.

Although the car has a rear seat, your Sims will not use it - there is no animation for a Sim to get in the back seat of a two-door car - so your Sim passengers will treat this car as if there was no back seat.

This object may be recolored, and may be included in lot uploads

Recolors should link to this post so people can get the mesh

The mesh file is NOT to be altered or used as a base for other meshes!

Model was modified from the Maxis sportscar using the .Ms3dASCII export/import of SimPE.

The basic body shell was modified from a free mesh found on ArchiDOM -

Polys = 11989 (667 polys per tile)

The car itself includes the mesh and the Red/White exterior and interior color options. The recolors file includes the other three exterior and interior color options seen in the picture.

Thanks to Vampcat, Cevic, Numenor, Pinhead, and Willem for their advice and information about editing the car meshes.

I would just like to thank you with providing us with vehicles for our Sims that are not only gorgeous but work!!! I download way too many cars that don't even work or show up in my game. When I saw this car I fell in love with it and just crossed my fingers that it would work! Sure enough it did! Thank you so much for not only this car, but all the others you've uploaded and allow people to use in their gameplay for free! Now my Sims can have extra cool cars! I'm a huge fan of older cars so I'm especially excited about your older models! Thanks again and keep up the great work!

My dad had a '55 BelAire....i remember riding in it as a kid..thanks for bringing back those old memories!! and thanks for this car my sims will definately have one!!! One thing though....i don't see a plain white one....those were the most common color wise.....daddy had a white one. I am new to simming and such (Just uploaded my first 2 pets yesterday...waiting on approval) and so i don't really know how to recolor anything yet however if anyone else would like to make a solid white would be much appreciated!!

Note to Pixel: Not a request....just something i noticed.

Amazing, and so beautiful! I love your work, especially the cars. (I know you don't take requests, so I'll just favorite your page and keep checking back in hopes you've created the one I'm looking for...!)

This is a really cute 50's car, even for my present-day neighbourhoods.
