It is 57 only and I have no info for 56 at all.

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!!
We have seriously hijacked this thread!

Greg: No, I am *NOT* sure.

I've only been on this forum for 2 years but I have always been under the impression that there was a broadcast sheet for the 1956 Dodges and that it *should* have been located on top of the glove box cardboard. Maybe that was just a myth (??!!?)

I've looked (Googled) "1956 Dodge Broadcast sheet" and "1956 Dodge Dealer order form" many times and come up dry every time. I was hoping that maybe on the Nteenth time I would get lucky.

So far, not so.

The broadcast sheet I posted was for a 57 Detroit built Dodge.

To broaden this search, has anyone got or seen a broadcast sheet for any LA built car? If I recall correctly Daves car is an LA car.

Greg: You remembered correctly. My 56 Dodge Custom Royal D500 Sedan was built in the LA plant in May, 1956

Jeff: Not what I am looking for but I would still like to see that broadcast sheet and any photos of your wagon. Sounds like a real rare one.

I had a broadcast sheet for my LA built '56 Plymouth. So that proves that your car could have come with one. But unfortunately, it was placed under the original rubber mat on the front passenger side of the car. That's where it was put. I could read a couple of lines from it, but not much after many years under there, and it had partially become embedded in the floor paint. When I pulled up the mat, I should have taken a good picture of it before doing my work, but that was just before the advent of cheap digital pictures so it didn't happen.

I did hope to find the broadcast sheet in one of three locations:

1. Above the glove box (Nope)
2. On the back (under) side of the rear seat bottom (Nope)
3. Under the carpet. (Nope)

Based on the 56 LA Plymouth story, mine might have been under the original carpet. However, by the time I took over care of the car 2 years ago, the carpet had long since been changed to something other than stock, both underlay and carpet wise.
