    I've been cruising around the internet looking for pictures of 53-54 belairs with Dagmars but am having no luck. Anyone have some shots to share?
     
  2. Your perusing of the internet and lack of information has proven it never was a popular modification with BelAirs. HRP

    While most are examples on earlier models, here are a few found after just a few minutes of searching. The trouble with Cadlillac dagmars on chevrolets is a problem of scale. The Chevy is a smaller bodied car than the Cadillac and so they are often look too big.

    Agreed.
    However, smaller bumper bombs were available on cars other than Cadillac which may fit better. '57 Chevy, to name just one. '55 Packard, too, which is not often used.

    By the way, in case you were wondering where the Dagmar name came from. Here is a pic of the 50s TV personality, Dagmar :

  6. Dagmar appeared on "Broadway Openhouse" with Jerry Lester back in the early days of T V

    If I had a Bel Aire , I would go with Carol Doda's (Twin 44's) or Tempest Stormers !

    Aye-Yi-Yi ! Mamasita !

  9. I think they look cool on the early 50s BelAirs... but not so much on the 55,56, and 57 models...

    How 'bout just sticking fake-spotlight buckets over the parking lights on a '53 grille...
