It's at the auction house, I'll have someone get by there this week to snap it. It was ordered new in Wedgewood Blue and white with blue and white interior, PS, PB, PW, P-seat, factory AC, tinted glass, dual rear antennas and on and on.
I don’t think I have ever seen a 1958 Dodge optioned out like this one and I have seen a lot of 1958 Dodges over the years. It is totally (but not frame off) restored. Rebuilt 361 (was originally 350), rebuilt trans, front end, brakes, rebuilt window motors, radio, wiper motor, speedometer, new paint, new interior, 89%-90% new chrome, new radial white wall tires that look like bias tires. New radiator (not recored but new) and heater control valve.

The things that are not original:
Disc brakes up front, new carburetor, an efficient aluminum A/C compressor, electric fan as a backup for the radiator, electric fuel pump also just as a backup for the mechanical pump. Has around 2k miles since restoration.

Mike -

Is the Dodge a Royal or Custom Royal ? Auction and this thread say Royal. But car says Custom Royal. Did it start out as a Royal, but was converted to a Custom Royal when restored ?

What disc brake system did you use to convert the front drums to discs?

Also, just wondering, where do you get whitewall tires that look like bias plies but are actually radials wide white, no less?

The radial tires that look life Bias Ply and be gotten from Coker or Diamondback Tire.
