My name is Mike and I just picked up this barn/field find, it’s a 55 Bel Air Sedan with 71,000 original miles and is a Automatic. I did the research on the Fischer Body Tag and found out the car came from Ohio with vinyl flooring, Blue on Blue interior and was Onyx Black. I’m torn on what direction to go with it because I love the Ivory over Turquoise and the earned patina.

Hi Mike! Welcome to Looks like a nice find there!

We'll be happy to help as much as we can, but as a truck site, about all we have in common is the engine. Some of the gang here are knowledgeable about cars and you can access their knowledge via our "Greasy Spoon" forum. Your engine shares application with our trucks, so you can find lots of expertise in our Engine Shop (forum) --just keep it quiet that its in a *car* wink

I'm not trying to run you off -- we're glad to help as much as we can. It's just that cars are outside of our scope for this site -- they are a whole field of knowledge unto themselves. We're just a bunch of dumb truck guys.... well, *I* am, anyway. So please use our site all you can and we'll try to help all we can.

Again, Welcome!

Welcome to the 'bolt. The secret to getting your questions answered is to no let on that you are working on a "car".... keep the questions generic to that vintage of vehicle's components, ie.. engine, trans, running gear, electrical system, ect.

Another quality post.
