Ok been thinking about this. Alot of people wonder what their cars actually are or what they did or did not come with. I am being specific about this year and model simply because I can find absolutely nothing other than parts books and servie manuals.

Does anyone have information regarding what came standard and up grade options were for the 1956 Chrysler Imperials and Imperial Crown Royal. I never found the punch card in my car and that showes what it should have had put in right? I known the record player was an option. Was the foot controlled radio an option or standard? The thrunk mounted A/C I belive was a flat out option, but again I don't know. I do know my car, like everyone elses from that era had trim levels designated by old golf course names, I think. My Imperials trim level is the Southampton and it has the cute little crown royal badging, but doesn't really say what it is anywhere on the car. I know my car came with the new 3 spd push button later that year. Did they start putting them standard or did they continue putting in the 2spd? The gas heater. Some say it was a dealer installed option and others say the gas heaters were more commonly put in cars in the upper north east. If dealer installed did they pull out the heater core and block off water ports to put the thing in? My engine does not have any block offs to even connect heater hoses too.

Kinda dumb but am wondering.

I don't think the IBM cards were ever in the cars. You can pay $$ and get a photocopy of the microfiche copy that Fiat Chrysler (FCA) historical might have. But it won't tell you much.

You need to start a hunt for the 56 Chrysler/Imperial Accessories booklet like this for the 56 Dodge (more under the cover photo):

And the order form like this:
