The top pic is of the Colorado state capitol in Denver. The trees in that area are really grown nowadays.

I've also liked certain early FLs more & more in recent years, particularly the '56 Plyms... the '55-56 DeS and Chryslers, while I like them, are rather heavy looking, contradicting somewhat the idea of Foward Look elegance and lightness so well demonstrated in all the '57-61s.

This picture deserved a little corrective action. This is the best I could do with it.

A local member of our WPC Club, Gerry McDonald owned this 1960 New Yorker in the mid 60s. Gerry installed a full 300-F cross-ram setup in the car. I believe these photos were taken in the Canadian Rockies one winter.

It's not the same car. Gerry's car had swivel seats, and I believe the cross rams were removed in the 1970s at some point. Very similar car through. Wheels are different on the Ebay car also.

Amazing how the 58 Plymouth stands out in the car park pic. The roofline does it. I cant tell if the 59 Plymouth is a 2 or 4 door?

That radar pic is REALLY neat! Weird that he's not using '59 Dodge caps though. Anyone recognize the ones on there? My guess is they are '56 Dodge caps. I wonder why those would end up on there.

Maybe, maybe not. Definitely not 59 Dodge poverty caps.

The police "package" could be ordered with 15" wheels, which would have the '56 Dodge dog-dish (pictured) or the '56 Plymouth dog
dish (smoothie type) all the way up through 1962 police models.

That doesn't make sense. The dog dish caps can be used on any rim size. The '59 car in the last picture is using '59 dog dish caps as you would expect. Steel versions of the '56 Plymouth caps were used on '57 Dodge Trucks. I *think* that '58 Dodge trucks used steel versions of '57 Plymouth caps, but in '59, they received their own cap.

Der Vedderator went over this subject ad nauseum - for the limited
application of 15" wheels, Dodge stuck with the 1956 wheels and dog
dishies through 1961. That is, IF the buyer wanted 15" wheels. If
they opted for the standard 14" wheels, they got the higher sales
volume dog dishies (or full face wheelcovers). It all depended on
which box got checked on the order sheet.

Interesting that the '56 hub caps continued for 15" wheels into 1959 (and maybe later). Didn't all Mopar police cars also use '57 Plymouth steering wheels into the '60s?

I thought those heads looked a too wide to NOT be a hemi.

"The Emi-Sul: Nearly a Hemi



Actually the Emi-Sul, which took two and a half years of work (and investment of $1 million dollars by Chrysler, which had taken a controlling stake in French Simca in 1963), was an adaptation of the Ardun kit created by “Mister Corvette,” Zora Arkus Duntov. The kit was used by hot rodders and American racers using the Brazilian Ford V8 engines in France. Simca of Brazil, through Pasteur, developed new aluminum heads that housed the valves in the block, and adopted a new intake and exhaust manifolds. They also eliminated the single-axle central camshaft, as the new heads each had a timing belt (that would become popular in the future); the drive was made by lifters and rockers."
