Sorry I can't help you right now with the vin number but Monday or Tuesday I'll have some more info for you from work. I left all my books there. I've done few '55, '56 Ford Fairlanes and I can send you any info I have on them plus a few contacts for parts.
I'm doing a '56 convertable now and over the winter I'll be doing my '55 Victoria finally.
I'll answer any questions I can on those Fords.
