Also from the March 57 issue of Car Life. I don't need to keep this magazine (it came with another one with 56 Dodge stuff in it). If somebody wants the magazine, you can have it for the cost of a padded envelop and postage.

Hemmings Classic Car June 2007

Too bad that Hemmings doesn't always get everything 100% correct, e.g. what they called the D500 315 hemi engine.

But this one does talk about the 218 hp 2bbl, single exhaust 315 poly as being the Super Red Ram.

I was at the biggest swap meet in my area yesterday and basically found nothing for my 56 Dodge (unless Ford 4.5" x 5 rims count). I did buy a couple of new wrenches (1.125" and 1.25") for $5 each and a May 1956 Car Life Magazine because of the 56 wagon content.

I have previously posted scans of the 1956 Dodge Wagon brochure:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=64788&...

The "new" article included 1956 wagons from Buick, Chev, Chrysler, Desoto, Dodge, Ford, Pontiac and Plymouth. The pages below are just the Mopar stuff:

Love this thread, if it deals with contemporary (old) articles. Very nice idea.

I've had this June 2000 Car Collector magazine for a while now and I thought that I had posted scans of the article to this thread. But nope. So here they are:

"1 of 6" and "done in Texas by a conversion shop"

but

"no body tags to identify the maker"

They seem to know some specifics about the conversion and how many were made, without actually knowing who did it.

Without documentation it is a nice looking custom car...

I would expect a lot more than 6 were made, but maybe that's just '56 Dodge. I wish the article gave more information about it, I came across this '56 Plymouth panel that was for sale locally and checked it out in detail. The side panels are definitely professionally made as they have the matching body line that goes across them at the top that would be very difficult to reproduce without some serious stamping equipment. Wayne (Stilloutthere) also inspected one and stated the same thing; that it looked factory made. These were used by the military, fire stations and other municipal functions. This particular '56 Plymouth was used by an LA fire station, probably for investigations use. The paint code on it is cherry red bottom with white top and started out as a base level Plaza with a 6 cylinder motor. These things are really rare, but they are definitely legit, and not some custom done by a home restorer.
