Hi there

As usual with American cars I have to depend on people that know their stuff - especially for questions like this: in inside/interior shots of the above car there are aluminium/chromed (???) "rims" visible on the top frames of the windows.
They look like a sort of "deflectors", at least they seem not to be the standard/stock window frames, although from the outside there seems to be nothing special in my opinion... .

ARE these deflectors ? Something to do with the 2403-optionals ?

Bye - and thank you !!!

In the movie, the main characters got this car as a rental. I grew up in the 1990s but the thing that shocked me was this movie took place in winter 1959-60 and the car had no tail fins. Every rental car Ive been in, even as a kid, was never more than a year or two year old. So does anybody know if thats a more recent development and back in 1960 it was common to rent cars that would already be 5 years old? It did take place in the middle of Kansas which isnt exactly a booming metropolis, but it was rented at an agency right next to the train station. Today even the smallest airports have rental agencies with new cars.

So to me it seems unlikely they would be driving a car that old based on modern standards. Anybody have an info to confirm or deny my hunch?

See, you're think logically and not like a movie director/art director, who are more concerned about the visuals telling a story, and there is nothing that screams 1950s more than the mid-50s Bel Airs. They probably thought the later 50's designs were too garish for the scene. They wanted something pretty instead.
