First car I "had" was a used '61 Chevy BelAir 4 door flattop sedan with a straight 6 and 3 on the tree. Dad bought it for me to drive but kept it in his name as leverage to keep me in line since I was just 14 when I got a license because I took driver's ed the summer before

high school in '61. I got to drive the parents' cars once in a while to run errands, etc. However, in October '62 I got the '61 Chevy to drive. Here are pics from google similar to mine, even the right color, although mine had narrow white sidewalls and dog dish caps when I got it in October ’62. For Christmas I got a set of hubcaps like the Dodge Lancers except the center symbol was a pair of crossed checkered flags from mother and dad and a 4 foot long chrome tail pipe for a straight flow muffler to hang under the car, lol. Just one because it was for the straight 6, remember? I had a lot of fun in that car. I loved it.

Not my car or my pics, but Google had these similar to my car:
