"The Chrysler A engine is a small-block V8 automobile engine from Chrysler Corporation. It was produced from 1956 until 1967, when it was replaced by the wedge-head LA engine. The A engine's combustion chambers are polyspherical, and it is not related to Chrysler's Hemi engines of the same era.

The A engine was first released in 1956, and was used exclusively in Plymouths until 1958. The cylinder bore center distance is 4.46 in (113.3 mm), larger than the earlier Dodge-based poly engines. The A engine formed the conceptual design basis of its successor, the LA engine.

318

The 318 is the most common version of the A engine, produced from 1957 through 1967 when it was replaced in all markets by the LA 318. Only Plymouth used this 318 in 1957 and 1958, but it was shared with the other Chrysler divisions from 1959 on. It displaces 317.9 cu in (5210 cc) and has a 3.91 in (99.3 mm) bore and the 3.31 in (84.1 mm) stroke.

A special 1957-'58 version called the V-800 used two four-barrel carburetors to produce 290 bhp (216.3 kW), making it the highest-output A engine. It was used in the 1957 and 1958 Plymouth Fury, but was also an option on Plymouth models lower in the model range. The Bristol 409 and 410 continued to use this engine until 1969. From 1962 until early 1965, Checker used this engine for their Aerobus limousines.[2]"

So based on this one:



Maybe one of these:

Trick would be to find the Part Number for the 58 sticker and then go looking for the sticker.

OR YearOne has a 58 Chrysler sticker that is probably close enough and only $3

Hey Jerry -

I have successfully reproduced the 1738020 air cleaner decal for 57-8 Plymouth with 2bbl carb. They are on 'water slide' paper as original. Soak in water. slide decal off and onto surface. Then let it dry. They look great ! $9.00 each. Free shipping.

Ron

PS - Actual decal doesn't have the word 'Sample' on it. Just FYI...
