I know that it was sent to a dealer in Harrisburg Illinois by the name of B.W. Rude Motor Co. It has a 325 poly with a 2bbl and torqueflight transmission.

Looks like it is a black/yellow/black Royal or Custom Royal built in Detroit on or around April 7, 1957. (A photo would help)

I think that I see Torqueflite ("323" code).



You might want to look for the Broadcast Sheet (like these) under a seat/carpet or on the top of the glove box:

Thanks Dave. Yes it was metallic charcoal, sunshine yellow, metallic charcoal as new. And yes it has a torqueflight. But it is a Royal Lancer.

I initially thought it was a Coronet because of the 21 in the 2176 body code but once I looked at the 372 VIN, I changed that opinion to a Detroit built Royal or Custom Royal (Detroit Coronets were 351...)

You can figure out what the punches on the IBM card are and where they go. I started a thread on this topic:
