I am going to be doing a post about the history and application of the name "Red Ram" and "D500" to various Dodge V8 engines from 1953 to 1961 and I will need access to these examples of what the brochures called the engines over that time period.

I would also like to include the engine definition pages from the Ross Roy Dodge data books but I only have the 1955 and 1956 books. If anybody has the 57-61 books, please post up scans for the engine definition diagram pages here. (Thanks). I've included what I have (55 and 56 here).

What the brochures (typically prepared in September or late August prior to the October/November release of the new model year cars) said about the engine names, starting with 1953 and ending with 1961:
