Hi to all,
I am new in this community. I am from germany and have a 1955 Bel Air. I bought the car in Florida and took it over to germany. The car looks beautful and drives well.
The only thing is that the body is in really bad condition. A lot of rust and wholes under the car.
That is the reason, why I need a complete new or better used body to restore the car.
We are flying to the US in a few days and will cross the country.

Can you help me with good adresses for:
- junkyards, which have Bel Air 1955 bodies
- someone, who builts new bodies

Thank you very much

Markus

Markus, The problem you are going to run into is if you find a solid 55 body it is going to be a restorable car even if a project and priced accordingly. What is your price range for a "nice" 55 body and are you looking for a 4 door or 2 door sedan or a hardtop?

Hi Bruce,
thanks for your answer. You are right, but I am looking only for the body. That means to make a project, you need much more, like all the small chrome parts, interior, engine, transmission windows, etc.
That is, why I asked about good adresses for junkyards

At the time I have no special price range. I have still started my search and I have time. That means it depends what I am finding, how is the condition and than it makes sense to talk about price.
And I am looking for a 2 door Bel Air Hardtop with Post body.
