I am going to look at a 1959 Dodge that the seller claims is a factory Super D-500 car. How can I tell by looking at the fender tag if it really is a Super D-500 car?

I think every dodge made was a Super D500 lol. I'm the only person in the world that doesn't own a Super D500 59 Dodge convertible.

That yellow 59 ain't a Super D500. It's weird how these cars can be called that based off emblems and a motor being shoved in from another platform. They call them SD500 with zero proof and expect people to bring mountains of proof to disprove their unprovable statement. So weird.

The engine code will be ML 383 under the distributor. But thats easily forged.

59 Desoto FD/FF engines also stamped ML383. So engine swap.

Car should be considered a 'made' car unless is comes with a FCA build sheet to prove its authenticity.

Unfortunately, one more seller who thinks slapping dual carburetors on a 326 makes it a Super D-500. Don’t need to decode tag to see that.
