In 1958 was there any Imperials manufactured with the Bendix Electrojector? If so where would the badging be placed and would access to the fuel pump be like that in plymouths? A friend of mine asked me this question and i tried scowering the internet for any information on it with no luck.

Since 1954 Bob Rodger with his Chrysler staff, and engineers of Bendix Corporation’s Automotive Electronics Division, had been studying the question. In February 1957 a 300C coupé was outfitted with EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) and tested by the factory. The trial outcome was evidently favorable, for on Sept. 28, 1958, the EFI "Electrojector" was offered as an option on Chrysler’s sport models - 300, Adventurer, D500 and Fury. Cars for whom the option was selected were sent to the DeSoto plant on Warren Ave. There the production-line carburetors were removed and EFI installed. An electric fuel pump and a 40-amp generator also went in. Finally, side emblems were removed and replaced with new ones proudly declaring FUEL INJECTION.

I have never heard any inkling of the possibility that '58 Imperials received any of the Bendix EFI units.

I agree. Never heard anyone claim a 58 Imperial MIGHT have had the Electrojector EFI....
