On a 1957 D 500 2 four barrel carb set up

Is there a specific engine code for the 2 four barrel car?

Did they have an Offenhauser intake or dodge intake?

what brand carb did they have and numbers on carb?

thanks as always for the help

Bob

I am not going to even pretend to know the answer other than we have gone around (and around) on this before with no conclusions.

The Intake manifold PNs are somewhere in here:



The carburetors will be Carter WCFBs. One of them might be a 2622S but I don't know. My 56 D500 single 4 bbl carb was a 2443S. The 58 D500 was a 2642S and the 57 D500 shows as a 2622S. Here is the list:

Hi Bob,
As you and I previously discussed, I believe this is a righteous Super D. Do you have a renewed interest in it? If so there are a number of things I would like to discuss.

A regular D 500 would be coded and punched for code 372. Clearly this car isn't.

This cars card is coded and punched for sales code 491 which is Super D 500. Please post pics of the car so we can get on with the factory details that will separate it from clones. The mechanical equipment needs to be accurate!!

Greg: I assume that your comments are based on the info sheet that you and D500Neil created while he was still alive?

This?

Here is a broadcast sheet for a 57 CRL 2Dr HT D 500 for your collection. Nice car!

BTW, these broadcast sheets list all the actual sales codes.

That is Neils handwriting at the bottom wondering why they are calling a charcoal met car black! He later determined that the note meant a black dash panel and a matching dash pad if ordered.

Greg: Thanks for posting that copy of an original 57 (or 58?) broadcast sheet.

Any idea whether the same or similar exists for the 56 Dodges? I've looked for mine (under the seats, under the carpet, on top of the glove box) but nothing has shown up.

Anybody?

I've posted a APB for a 56 Dodge Broadcast sheet in the wanted section.

I am just asking, but, are you sure Dodge in 56 used broadcast sheets? In 57/58 I'm unsure whether or not Plymouth, Chrysler or Imperial even used broadcast sheets!?

As I understand it, broadcast sheets were just "checklists" for the various assembly/subassembly areas to be sure cars were built as ordered. Required because these Dodges had many and many different options! A crazy number actually!!
