Need a bit of help with full interpretation of a few things on an 56 Dodge IBM card that I was sent:

1. What is the code for the 56 Dodge standard transmission "2"? or "3"? I think 2 because 3 is the Powerflite

2. Anybody know of a dealer 54612 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on the west bank of the Mississippi?

3. Anybody know what special order "257" means? I have several examples of 56 Dodge IBM cards including D500 cards and none of them had any thing in the SPL ORD box. This one has 257.

Hope somebody knows.

I can't help with anything 56 but I have seen a number of special order numbers and I think they are just order numbers to reference a document.

Hello. I think that:

1 = 3speed Manual Transmission
2 = 3speed Manual Transmission with Overdrive
3 = 2speed Automatic Transmission Powerflite

No info about 257 and dealer.
Can I view an IBM Card? Where did you send it?

And they appear to be in chronological order.

54612 Harris Motor Car Co.


Thanks. How did you know that? Is there a list somewhere?

Here is what I found out about the Harris Motor Car Company:

Which makes sense in that the IBM card says: C GIRDAU (short for Cape Girardeau)
