I have previously posted about my 56 Dodge's cowl tag. I recently received scanned copies of the 56 Dodge Accessories brochure (see below). Now I'd like to interpret the cowl tag and the IBM card in light of the brochure info.

My car has Tinted windows, power steering, power brakes, Powerflite, and the Basic, Convenience and Appearance accessories (vanity mirror is missing but it probably was there at the beginning). I don't know how those translate to the Cowl Tag or IBM card.

Dave—I have the same problem—-I purchased a 1956 Custom Royal Sedan last Saturday and can find no information that will help me learn the original paint (263) and trim (3422) and body (835). There has to be a resource available for us! Anything that you can share with me will be greatly appreciated.

George: Welcome to the forum. There aren't many 56 Dodge folks here that are active. I will try to help you as much as possible.

First thing is to post up some photos of your car. Here are some hints about how to do that:

Start at the top of this thread:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=64340&...

I have previously posted a number of 56 Dodge articles to this thread (note it goes over two pages):

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=67189&...

As for paint, I think 263 is Sapphire white, jewel black and aquamarine, based on this thread:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=63553&...

which includes this:



Body 835 = same as mine = 4 dr sedan

Trim: 3422 = too many numbers. Should only be three numbers as far as I know and I would have thought that it would be 541, 542 or 543 (?)

For the Custom Royal Sedans, so far I know:

541 = two tone blues
542 = black and white
543 = might be the two green tones

Have a look at this thread:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=65230&...

I am emailing you this directly as well.

frwl (Igor): Not sure if your knowledge/data base goes back as far as 1956 or not but I am hoping that you can decode the codes on the top row of this tag:

Hello Dave!

LA codes are very hard to identify. I'm not sure they're correct and may be wrong. Here is what I have.

SG = 1 = Solex Tinted Glass – All Windows (Code 361)
SG = 2 = Solex Tinted Glass – Windshield only (Code 362)
SG = 4 = Solex Tinted Glass
SG = 5 = Solex Tinted Glass – All Windows and Sun Cap Visor (outer)

EW = 2 = Power Windows
EW = 3 = Power Windows (Code 363)

M1 = 6 = Code 356 = Radio 6 Tube VELVETONE and Rear Seat Speaker
M1 = 8 = Code 358 = Radio 8 Tube MUSIC MASTER and Rear Seat Speaker (which you have…)
M1 = 9 = Code 359 = Radio 9 Tube ELECTRO TOUCH TUNER and Rear Seat Speaker

SAME RADIOS – LESS REAR SEAT SPEAKER:
M1 = 5 = Code 356 = Radio 6 Tube VELVETONE
M1 = 7 = Code 358 = Radio 8 Tube MUSIC MASTER (although HI-FI RECORD PLAYER has code 357)
M1 = 1 = Code 359 = Radio 9 Tube ELECTRO TOUCH TUNER

M2 = 4 = ??? – no info

M3 = 1, 4, 5 or 7 = ??? some sources says that 1 is a Code 451 = Electric Clock

M5 = 2 = Jiffy Jet Windshield Washer (Code 392). Probably Variable Speed Windshield Wipers has Code 391…
But another source info says that Codes 391 and 392 are dealer installation Plymouth accessory codes (mirrors)

M6 = 2 = Exterior Molding Trim Packages for Plymouth (Codes 421, 422, 423, 424, 425) and DeSoto (Codes 421 and 422)

M7 = ??? – no info

M8 = 3 = Dodge Basic Accessory Group (possibly Code 413), includes a Heater with Defroster (Code 355), besides mirrors
M8 = 3 = DeSoto Accessory Group: Tinted Glass, Heater, Mirrors, WSW Tires, etc.
M8 = 4 = DeSoto Accessory Group: Tinted Glass, Heater, Mirrors, WSW Tires, etc. + Radio 8 Tube
M8 = 5 = DeSoto Accessory Group: Tinted Glass, Heater, Mirrors, WSW Tires, etc. + Radio 9 Tube and Rear Seat Speaker

So, if a digit on the position M8 has «3», position M1 should have 5, 6, 7, 8 or a 9 logically – Radio codes factory installed.
If M1 has nothing – radio installed by dealer

M9 = 3 = Inside Prismatic Mirror
M9 = 4 = Inside Prismatic Mirror + Left Outside Mirror
M9 = 8 = Inside Prismatic Mirror + Left Outside Mirror + Right Outside Mirror

Correct me, if I’m wrong…

P.S.
Can you read the phrase (three letters) below 5 to the right of AXLE 35… on the top of this picture?
HTR – Heater?

While I digest the info on my cowl data tag, I am responding to the "PS":

The 1955 Dodge Detroit IBM card you question is this one:



I have annotated a similar 1956 Dodge Detroit IBM card and that category is "ROUTE" . Maybe in 1955 they just used "RTE" (??)

This:

Igor: Thanks very much. I will now add my comments to your thoughts (I will put mine in bold).

For clarification, my car came with the basic group , convenience group and appearance group options from this list:



The following is from you with my comments in bold:

***********************
Hello Dave!

LA codes are very hard to identify. I'm not sure they're correct and may be wrong. Here is what I have.

SG = 1 = Solex Tinted Glass – All Windows (Code 361) My car has Solex (lightly) tinted windows all around so SG =1 makes sense
SG = 2 = Solex Tinted Glass – Windshield only (Code 362)
SG = 4 = Solex Tinted Glass
SG = 5 = Solex Tinted Glass – All Windows and Sun Cap Visor (outer)

EW = 2 = Power Windows
EW = 3 = Power Windows (Code 363) No power windows, so no code makes sense

M1 = 6 = Code 356 = Radio 6 Tube VELVETONE and Rear Seat Speaker
M1 = 8 = Code 358 = Radio 8 Tube MUSIC MASTER and Rear Seat Speaker (which you have…) Not really. When I bought my car, it came as a radio delete and there was no rear speaker - I added the radio and speakers
M1 = 9 = Code 359 = Radio 9 Tube ELECTRO TOUCH TUNER and Rear Seat Speaker

SAME RADIOS – LESS REAR SEAT SPEAKER:
M1 = 5 = Code 356 = Radio 6 Tube VELVETONE
M1 = 7 = Code 358 = Radio 8 Tube MUSIC MASTER (although HI-FI RECORD PLAYER has code 357)
M1 = 1 = Code 359 = Radio 9 Tube ELECTRO TOUCH TUNER
M2 = 4 = ??? – no info

M3 = 1, 4, 5 or 7 = ??? some sources says that 1 is a Code 451 = Electric Clock I have the OE ElectroMechanical Clock

M5 = 2 = Jiffy Jet Windshield Washer (Code 392). Probably Variable Speed Windshield Wipers has Code 391…
But another source info says that Codes 391 and 392 are dealer installation Plymouth accessory codes (mirrors) My car has both Jiffy Jet washer and variable windshield wipers

M6 = 2 = Exterior Molding Trim Packages for Plymouth (Codes 421, 422, 423, 424, 425) and DeSoto (Codes 421 and 422) I got the standard Custom Royal "chrome" trim

M7 = ??? – no info

M8 = 3 = Dodge Basic Accessory Group (possibly Code 413), includes a Heater with Defroster (Code 355), besides mirrors
M8 = 3 = DeSoto Accessory Group: Tinted Glass, Heater, Mirrors, WSW Tires, etc. As stated above, I have the basic, convenience and appearance group options
M8 = 4 = DeSoto Accessory Group: Tinted Glass, Heater, Mirrors, WSW Tires, etc. + Radio 8 Tube
M8 = 5 = DeSoto Accessory Group: Tinted Glass, Heater, Mirrors, WSW Tires, etc. + Radio 9 Tube and Rear Seat Speaker

So, if a digit on the position M8 has «3», position M1 should have 5, 6, 7, 8 or a 9 logically – Radio codes factory installed.
If M1 has nothing – radio installed by dealer

M9 = 3 = Inside Prismatic Mirror
M9 = 4 = Inside Prismatic Mirror + Left Outside Mirror I have the inside prismatic mirror and both the left and right outside mirrors
M9 = 8 = Inside Prismatic Mirror + Left Outside Mirror + Right Outside Mirror <

Correct me, if I’m wrong

********************

Thanks very much. You did pretty good. I now know more than I did when I woke up this AM.
