1962 “Dr. No”/ 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 2434

It’s little bit strange to imagine that the first car to appear in a Bond film would be American, but Bond rides in a beautiful 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in 1962 “Dr. No” on the back seat.

Also driven by an undercover lackey of the eponymous Dr. No named “Mr. Jones” posing as a chauffeur, the car did not have any exciting gadgetry or receive much screen time.

Some people say that if you look real close, the instrument panel of that car as it was filmed in “Dr. No” is that of a 1957 Ford Fairlane, not a 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Probably they did that because they felt that the speedometer of the ’57 Fairlane was much easier for them to read and focus the camera on than the ’57 Chevy speedometer.
