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.

Wowzers! Nicely done! Someone made a '57 awhile back, but left on the "biohazard" wheels from the Hunka. I really like the more realistic wheels on your '55!

Beautiful Work
I haven’t a clue way a 55 Chevy is a great car?
This is not saying I don’t like it `The car your work is impressive.
The overall look of this is fantastic!
I love that it’s a convertible so you can see your sim in it.
Thank you for sharing your work.

I'm a huge lover of the classics. I love the rims, and you got the car the to look just the way it should.

No wonder it got featured so quickly.

There are many myths about planes. Not many people know them. My favorite one is the propellor one: The propellor is on the front of the plane, it cools the pilot, because when it turn off, the pilot starts sweating.

This is absolutely fantastic. I loved this car. The first time I ever drove one of these, it happened to be a race car. I stepped on the gas, let out the clutch, the front end jumped off the ground, slammed down and took off with me pinned to the seat and the tires screeching. I was 16 years old and I'll never forget it. Your cars are absolutely the best, and thank you for making this.

I have two '55 Chevys I'm restoring and I've been looking for one for my sims for the longest time
I don't suppose you'd be willing to make a '55 two-ten 4 door sedan? Besides the roof and extra doors, the only difference is interior pattern, two tone paint division, and side trim.

If anyone wants to make more colors, I'd like to request Cashmere Blue/India Ivory (stock color of mine), Neptune Green/Sea Mist Green, Harvest Gold/India Ivory.
