Yes...Congratulations on your new car...and I'm sure it's a great one.

Decoding your VIN:

1st symbol = model and series: C - Bel Air 2400 series six cylinder; VC - Bel Air 2400 series V8
2nd & 3rd symbol = model year: 56 - 1956
4th symbol = assembly plant: A - Atlanta, GA.; B - Baltimore, MD.; F- Flint, MI.; J - Janesville, WI.; K - Kansas City, MO.; L - Los Angeles, CA.; N- Norwood, OH.; O = Oakland, CA.; S - St. Louis, MO.; and T - Tarrytown, NY.
Last 6 symbols = production sequence number in the specific factory

I know there are quite a few websites out there that are geared towards the 56 Bel Air where you will be able to find a lot of information. Here are a couple that I can think of off the top of my head.
