See sellers description regarding the muscle car statement. Steve.


Seller is Jeff P. in Santa Barbara. Any comments he might have made about being the original muscle car either came from the "Fear the Flags" article he sent me (and I thought I posted here) or email discussions that we had based on other magazine articles, etc. PS: Not even my wife could tell that this wasn't me driving his car:



Turns out that I never posted the "Fear the Flags" article. SO now I have (BELOW). If somebody has a better copy or knows where the original was sourced, please let me know. Chrysler300country.com is toast.

Thanks for posting the FEAR OF THE FLAGS articles I picked something on P29 the photo of the double log intake and part number is 1733878 what surprises me is the# "173" I have always understood or thought the 7 indicated the year as in 57. The one I have is a Chrysler 1634285 dual log four bbl intake.Oh well something old something new…to me.Hang in there Dave like a Parrot on Perch go for cracker and we'll pick up the crumbs

Glen: The 1956 D-500 single four bbl car intake manifold has a PN of 1731 515 so your theory (which is logical) doesn't work. The other thing is PNs and Casting numbers are not necessarily the same. Your 1634 285 doesn't show up at all. The 55 and 56 Chrysler 300 dual 4 bbl manifolds are PN 1731 686. The 57 and 58 non-fuel injection 300 2 x 4 bbl manifold is supposed to be 1733 477.

Remember that the 56 D-500 dual 4 bbl manifolds were aluminum and made by Carl Kiekhaefer's Mercury Marine. So who knows what the PN was (somebody not me)?

I just re-read that Dodge News Article before I put the magazine in its sleeve and tuck it in for the winter.

Cute (and misleading) phrasing:

"Tuned up, Not Tricked up" - implying it was a stock 56 Dodge.

Then they throw in "Danny (Eames) prepared his D-500-1 (Dodge) himself. The result was truly a stock car, tuned for the last once of performance, but not tricked up. A man could buy the duplicate anywhere Dodges are sold".

Hmm....D-500-1 = 2 four barrels, etc, etc. And either 276 hp or 285 hp, depending on who you want to believe. Not really "stock" but I would let that slide if they had just stopped there.

BUT no. Then they say this:

"Next day,...., Danny brought his 260-h.p. Dodge home in front of every passenger car on the beach". So now they are intentionally misleading the readers.

Not tricked up = single 4 bbl 260 hp. 2 x 4bbls and >276 hp = tricked up.

Whatever. Typical sales lies.

I can see if my D500-1 aluminum intake has a part number on it the next time I go to my garage, if you need to know. I do have this picture of it but that's likely the casting number and not the part number on top, if you can make it out...

Collectible Car October 1997 Long (12 page) article. I've scanned the pages as pdfs but had to use 100 dpi to keep it under 250 kB per page. I don't really like the results. Otherwise I would scan to jpgs at 150 dpi and then resize to get them just under 250 kB. Let me know if you want the higher res jpgs.

I have been informed by two FL forum members that the white and yellow 4dr sedan D-500 featured in the article above left the factory as a D500, not as a D500-1, i.e. the 2 x 4 bbl stuff was added later. This also apparently applies to the iron torqueflite, i.e. the car left the factory with a 2 spd Powerflite and the 3 spd torqueflite was added later.

Nevertheless, it is a very nice car. I am told that it still lives and is used in the summer to pull a vintage wooden inboard motor boat (on a trailer). The boat has 56 Dodge gauges. Cool.

This is the third of four articles that I will post this week. Tomorrow's is a boring September 1956 Consumer's Union review of the 56 Dodge D500. Like anyone cared what they said.

This one is from June 1993 Mopar Action:

Okay. You guys with 57, 58 and 59 D500s need to step up and post some scans of magazine articles about your cars. I never intended that I would be the only contributor to this thread. I was hoping to see articles about the 1957 325 D500 hemi and then the 58 and 59 B-block wedgehead D500s.

I've got more magazines with 56 D500 articles coming to me and I will post the scanned articles as the come - but I don't want to "hog" the thread just for 56 D500s. I hope that others will post articles about their later D500s.

I am posting just the D500-related pages here. There are two other pages, i.e. 56 Fury and 56 300B that I will post in the FL magazine thread.

One of two magazines that I got today.


This from the other magazine I got yesterday. The second page of the article is just there because the banner headline crossed two pages. I like the D500 advert.

Thanks. You're welcome. Glad somebody is enjoying them.

I was hoping that people with 57, 58 or 59 D500's would join in and post scans of magazine articles about their D500s here too. It was never intended to be just me and 56 D500s.

Do you have something that could be posted about 59 D500s, Serge?

Thanks for posting that Serge. Fun to read.

Now we need somebody to post up at least one 57 D500 and one 58 D500 article so we have all the D500's represented.

Found this while searching for something that I couldn't find Note that the 57 Dodge D500 was "Dynamite" but the 56 Dodge D500 was a "real bomb". I presume by 1958, the D500 was "Thermonuclear" (??)

Subject: May 1956 Mechanix Illustrated - Tom McCahill on Daytona Speed Week

.
While trying organize the area around my desk (and look for the "missing" 56 Dodge wagon brochure that I had not seen in months (found it)), I bumped into the D500 Brochure that I had previously scanned and posted.

This: http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=67802&...

While paging the hardcopy, I rediscovered the page where it said "In the official N.A.S.C.A.R. speed trials at Daytona Beach, a Dodge D500 beat all other cars...regardless of price, size or horsepower...over measured mile from a "standing start". Since I remembered that a Chrysler 300B had the top two-way speed, I questioned that statement and looked for corroboration for/against that statement.

Found the answer (I think) in the May 1956 issue of Mechanix Illustrated in which Uncle Tom McCahill wrote about the Feb. 1956 Speed week.

First thing is the Chrysler Corp. copy writer probably should have mentioned that the record was for Domestic cars, not the world's cars.

Two pertinent bits from the article:

1. "The big events of the Speed Trials were the U. S. Production Car Flying and Standing Miles. The overall winner of the Flying Mile, two-way average, was Tim Flock driving a 300B Chrysler for a new record at an average speed of 139.373. Second in overall standing was Danny Eames driving a ’56 Dodge 500 at an average speed of 130.577 In the small car class, 259-305 cubic inches, Murray Hartley of Erie, Pa., on his first trip to Florida, ran away with the Division at an average speed of 121.335 in a 1956 Chevrolet. In the Women’s Division, Mrs. Vicki Wood of Detroit, driving a 300B Chrysler, set a new record at 136.081."

2. "For the Mechanix Illustrated Acceleration Trophies, one mile from a standing start, Danny Eames’ 1956 Dodge 500 just beat out Brewster Shaw in a Chrysler 300B when he ran the distance at an average speed of 81.786 against Shaw’s time of 81.762. In the under-305-cubic-inch class, a ’56 Chevrolet was very close to the top large cars and averaged 81.392, driven by Ned Decker of Sherwood, Ohio. In the Popular Price Class, Murray Hartley, whose ’56 Chev won the under-305-cubic-inch Flying Mile, also took this Division at the same time. In the MI trophy runs for Sports Cars, Chuck Daigh of Long Beach, Calif, ran away with the event driving a ’56 Ford Thunderbird at an average speed of 88.779, a new record."

I think the Danny Eames car was a D500-1 (i.e. the higher hp dual quad version, not the 260 hp single 4bbl version).

Still, good stuff.

BTW, the "trick" 2 x 4 bbl 56 Plymouth Fury was not forgotten:

"In the Sports Car Division, John Fitch of Stamford, Conn., won the event in a ’56 Corvette with an average speed of 145.543. This is a new American Production Car record but not a new Sports Car record, which is still held by a D-Jaguar that averaged 164 and a fraction in 1955. Also, Zora Arkus-Duntov driving a fully-modified Corvette won this event at 147.300. In the Prototype Class, Vern Haule of California averaged 147.269 driving a prototype Mercury, in spite of the fact that the car was experiencing slight mechanical difficulty. Another outstanding prototype car was the ’56 Plymouth Fury driven by Phil Walters that averaged 136.415, or just under three mph slower than Tim Flock’s record-breaking 300B. In the European Sports Car Class Howard Meeker driving an XK140-MC Jaguar won the event at an average speed of 134.078. Another interesting time was Phil Stiles in an Austin-Healey 100SM with an average speed of exactly 128."
