Finally picked up the Royal Lancer. Project car. Friend at work got other projects and wasn't going to do anything with it. Local Junker wanted it. Getting some gold hood letters from his yard and a piece of door trim, (2nd pic.) maybe more after Christmas. Misty Green and White.

Rust doesn't look insane, its got lots of smashes from pinballing around a junkyard for a while though.

Doors should be an easy replace.

Are you going to build it or part it? It looks like a good builder. Rare to see the interior as good as that. If you have some extras, I could use a good silver "E" hood letter.

What an awesome car! The 57 Royal hardtops easily have one of the best interior designs of any FL! Cool score!

Great car, one just like this, a '57 Coronet 4 dt hardtop, in slightly better shape hopefully, is exactly the car I'm looking for as my last FL car (I'm turning 70 !)

Great car! Your interior dash photo looks a lot like mine, except I have a Coronet and therefore different door panels/seat covers. I love the Misty Green on the 1957 Dodge as that is so much a 1950's color.

It's great that this car will be saved, so many idiots cut up 4 dr cars it's sickening. They are all rare now. Good on ya Marc!
