With "SUPER RARE FACTORY HY FIRE 277 CID V8
(EARLY CANADA MODEL HEMI)"

Yup. Those are so SUPER rare that they don't (and never) exist(ed).

That said, I might have bought it three years ago when I was scouring Canada for a 56 Plymouth 2dr hardtop V8 auto.

(I've had my 56 Dodge for a full three years now (Sept. 15, 2016) and I am still playing "betterifying" it)

Lose the fender skirts and the lake pipes and it's not a bad car.

No reserve on this cars auction. I wonder what hub caps it came with? Neat looking car, and no doubt a rare bird.
The next owner is going to need a big bucket of chrome polish!!!

It's a great looking car, and the four door hardtop body style, IMO, on this model makes it looks longer than a 2 door hardtop. Very nice. I'd also lose the lake pipe, and while I'm not a fan of skirts, I don't mind them on this car.

Agree, imo 4 dr hardtops are frequently better proportioned than the equivalent 2 dr, also the case with '57/58 FLs.

Yes and no. The Canadian 56 Plodge V8 was the 270 poly. The Canadian Custom Royals using the 120 in wheel base American chassis and body were the ones that got the Plymouth-derived 303 V8 (but 2 bbl and not high compression like the 303 56 Fury engine), labelled "Super Red Ram" (but it wasn't really)
