Powerflite - 2018-02-14 11:01 AM The motor does sound a little sick, but not quite a miss. A 413 in a '57 Dodge seems like it should be quite a bit faster than low 15 sec in a '57 Dodge if it was running well, but a top speed number would eliminate the traction question.


Here is a working link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95QlxH2pBZU&t=3s

The voice over guy tells it straight. He never says "D500". The says it that he built it and that is "slightly warmed over" with 63-64 413 with a 750 Carter AFB and 65 727 Torqueflite and a B body 8 3/4 posi rear end. SSB front discs.

Given all that and the condition of the car and potential cam issues not-withstanding, the current asking price for the car, as a Custom Custom Royal Lancer (not as a D500), is good, I think.

yeah the car is obviously not original and is not junk. Haggle with the dealer and you have a good purchase Guy spent 10 years restoring it?

I would be the auction said it was a clone, just your typical shady dealer going "yep she's a beaut!, and rare!, little old lady outta Mt Pleasant owned it!"...

Just drive it or put back to original, either way its still a nice car

What's the difference in speedo housings between '57 and '58? I thought they were the same.


No...there is a difference between them...if you look at a 57 Speedo the last digit is 120 but look closely and you see that it continues to 130mph , the 58's finish right at 120mph.

With or without "teeth" (aka "spuds") (Personally, I like the grill without on a 57)

27 means optional engine and upgraded suspension. Check it out yourself! The only way one could order suspension upgrades is by a package. The second digit is the "chassis" code which involves the "packages". No other way, for example, to order a sway bar on a Coronet. No way to order heavier "domestic" torsion bars except by package.

Neil and I have clearly identified " chassis" codes: 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and now 27? I have a chart of our results......



Greg, can you post this updated chart, or provide a link to it?


Nathan. Here is the best copy of the chart I have.

Thanks Greg. I appreciate you posting that. Do you know if the heavy duty Dodge torsion bar & rear springs are the same as the standard Firesweep & '58-'59 Windsor T-bars & springs? Essentially, they would create a Dodge using a Firesweep frame assembly with the sway bar & stiffer springs already on it. It would make sense to me, but I am just guessing.

I don't know, Nathan. When we did that work we were concentrating only on Dodge and they were all Detroit built with their characteristic body plates. We actually crawled under, or had someone else do it, all these example cars to get part numbers! Oh, to be that young again!! -- !

Just a heads up this a good example of "Buyer Be Ware" when I mentioned to them that I was arranging to have a credited appraiser from Hagerty do a hands on appraisal their story line changed so much that they would not answer a text ofr a phone call. I have several photos of the car including a vin # from the door jam and that was blurred?
