A 4-door sedan but the body looks solid with minimal CA rust

That's a British Columbia Collector Car plate on the front of this LA car.

Weird.

Wouldn't a real Custom Royal have a clock, gold "DODGE" lettering and rear bumper guards? It would also have a WFCB carb instead of a Stromberg, but there are no engine photos to help out with that detail.

I guess it doesn't look gold on my old computer monitor. How about the other details?

In your favour, the hood and trunk both have gold "DODGE" lettering but the gold is quite faded.

In the car's favour, it seems to have a nice dash pad and it does have torqueflite. Needs a period-looking radio. Should have a 325 V8 according to the 57 Dodge brochure.

Regarding carburetor's Nathan posted this:

"1957 6 D72 Stromberg WW 3 159 215
1957 6 D72 Stromberg WW 3 160 215
1957 8 D66,67,70,71 Stromberg WW 3 150 224
1957 8 D66,67,70,71 Stromberg WW 3 149 224
1957 8 325 D-500 Police Special Carter WCFB 2698 1345
1957 8 325 D-500 (Rear of 2) Carter WCFB 2634 509
1957 8 325 D-500 (Front of 2) Carter WCFB 2633 509
1957 8 325 D-67 Carter WCFB 2532 165
1957 8 325 D-500 Carter WCFB 2622 165"

And I posted this (in which a 3-149 is probably a Stromberg (but the D67-2 (57 Custom Royal) should have had a Carter WCFB 2532S)). So who knows?

Robert,  I am curious... What accessory groups does your CRL have on the IBM card? I have not seen a CRL that did not have a radio in the build due to the groups ordered on a CRL,

Coronets, that is a different story as they are a price leader and the dealer would upsell one out of their parts dept.

This car is identical in color scheme to one that was running around here in Victoria, BC about 15-20 years ago with BC Collector plates.
I haven't seen it in ages but if it's the same car it was in much nicer shape then.

a) that BC plate starting with B02 is pretty old (one of mine from 2015 is B33) so that could fit with 15-20 years ago.

b) we were all likely much nicer shape back then too (the cars and us).

I recently (in the last year) learned that mine was a lot nicer back in 1990 (26 years before I owned it). Do you have any photos of the 57 Ian?

Looks like the dash has been cut to make the radio fit.

No photos of the car. I only ever saw it while I was driving, probably only 3-4 times and then it disappeared.
