View Full Version : 56 Model Designation
03-18-2006, 01:39 AM
I need a little help from the brains on this forum. I was told I had a 210 post but I saw on this forum 3 different model designations for a 2 door with a post(not a wagon). There was a sport coupe, sedan, and a Delray. What are the characteristics of each?

The 210 is the mid level model. (See below) The delray had all vinyl interior and carpeted floors. TYhe regular 210 had rubber floor covering and cloth and vinly seats as well as door panels.

I didn't think the Belair had a post:confused: How can I tell what model mine was without having any of the original interior intact, VIN maybe?

Yes, the vin will do it. Post it, but put 'X''s for each of the last 6 digits. No point in offering that to anyone who visits the site.

OK! The VIN is B56Lxxxxxx
Thanks in advance for the information!..........:D

B56Lxxxxxx---B=210, 56----1956, and L= Los Angeles production plant.
The last six digits are the sequencial product numbers.
Style 56-1011= 1956 and a 2 door sedan
Body#VN 483= Van Nuys CA and 483 is the number the body was coming off the line. This appears to be the 483rd body produced by Fisher.
Trim 565=Starfrost vinyl and blue pattern cloth.
Paint 706C= India ivory and sherwood green two-tone
Top ACC ? This line usually begins 'ACC' for accesories and they are stamped to the right.
At any rate, yours is a 2 door 210 style.
