I bought this for fun. Maybe in case somebody has a 56 D500 wagon that they want to sell me sometime (Maybe)

In the meantime, I like to share the good (stuff I am happy with) and the bad (stuff that didn't go well). This is a "good".

I only came here in late Sept 2016 after I bumped into and bought my D500 sedan.

I recently was sent some pages from perhaps an older Kelly Blue book (see below).

In these pages, it lists seven iterations of the 56 Dodge wagon. I am hoping to learn what the body codes for all seven were. At this point, I only know 2 of them.

From the above brochure listing and the Blue Book list, I have interpreted and compiled the following (if I am wrong please correct me):

56 Dodge Wagons

Basics:


Suburban = 2 doors, max of 2 seats/6 passengers, 3 in front, 3 in rear, no third seat
Sierra = 4 doors, could be 2 seat/6 passengers or 3 seat /8 passengers (the additional 2 in the rear most area), 270 cu in poly V8, chrome headlight doors (bezels), no chrome on rear fins
Custom = body-coloured headlight doors, chrome rear fins added to either the Suburban or Sierra, 315 cu in poly V8


Engines:

Flat head 131 hp 230 cu in 6 cyl - Suburban only
270 cu in 2 bbl 189 hp poly Red Ram V8, Suburban and Sierra
315 cu in 2bbl 218 hp Super Red Ram poly V8, Custom Suburban and Custom Sierra
315 cu in 4 bbl 230 hp Super-Powered Super Red Ram poly optional from the initial introduction
315 cu in 4 bbl 260 hp D500 hemi optional after approximately May 1956 (Dr. Desoto owned one for a time)

Combinations and permutations from the 56 Dodge Wagon Brochure:

6 cylinder Suburban example: Code 647 2dr 6 cyl with standard transmission
8 cylinder Suburban, 270 cu in V8
8 cylinder, Sierra, 4dr, 2 seats/6 passengers
8 cylinder, Sierra, 4dr, 3 seats/8 passengers
8 cylinder Custom Suburban. Rumour has Code 857 where V8, 2dr, auto trans, 2 seats, body-coloured head light bezel/doors, chrome fins
8 cylinder Custom Sierra 6 passenger, example Code 858: V8, 4 dr, auto trans, 2 seats (Doctor Desoto's Custom Sierra D500 wagon had this code (see below)
8 cylinder Custom Sierra 8 passenger

So I am still looking for build tag (cowl tag) or IBM card examples of the five or six wagons that I am missing.

Dr. Desotos' D500 Custom Sierra build tag with the 858 body code:
