The 58 is effectively a resto-mod done by Jay Leno's painter. We've discussed the car at some length previously.

The 57 is very very nice. 260 hp 325 poly 4bbl dual exhaust with torqueflite.

'the hell?!?!?!?!

This is from the ad for the '58 - is this an original '58 fuel injection manifold?

The casting number (1828 715 ???) doesn't work as a part number.

Did the 58 Dodges ever get fuel injection? The D500 and the Super D500s were both 361s but the Super D-500s were "just" 2 x 4bbls, I believe

That said, I see locations for eight injectors on that manifold.

If this is Jay's painter, I believe he has an EFI 300 that is soon to appear on "Jay Leno's Garage"

Apparently 12 Dodges were built with fuel injection. GM acquired one, removed the engine, and tested it in the summer of 1958. Unsure what happened to that car afterwards. That manifold photo’d is for the 392 Chrysler engine.
