Last time across the block it failed to receive a bid. The market is still SO flat on these cars.

I really tried to get this car before it left Oregon for the auction circuit. I offered more that I should and he declined.

Good thing cause now I have my Fury, which is statically a better investment. (not why I bought it. I bought it to drive it)

I'm sure he has a lot into it, VERY nice car.

Nice(ish) car but it still has the same problems that it had before. These include:

1. The engine is a D500 hemi. That's it. NOT a "SUPER RED RAM" (that was the 218 hp 2 bbl 315 poly). That said, the owner did paint the valve covers and air cleaner red compared to one of the previous times on the market (from a collage that I did of the previous photos):



Current offering:



3. The metal end plate on the brake booster bellows was not black. It was some kind of anodized silver/gold/cadmium:



3. If SMS really did the interior (with NOS fabric), they F'd it up. The direction of the fabric is 90 deg out.



(Here's how the fabric should be):

Found a car very similar to that in Washington last year, Police Package car with the Dodge hemi. Price was too much so didn't buy it.

In case there is some confusion, one of the previous times that this car was up for sale, the owner posted a photo of the IBM card. So as long as the IBM card is legit and the VIN is 35118945, the engine in the car should be D500-4988 with the car built on/around May 8, 1956. (Another data point for my "collection")

That's what the block says. And it has six leaves in the rear springs.

Well that helps with the credibility of the car as potentially having been a cop car. Having been built on May 8th, 1956 it wasn't one of the early builds when they all got the 6 leaf rear springs as part of the D500 package. This one had to be ordered like that.
