This one:

https://barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1956-DODGE-CUSTOM-R...

$11K (I weep)(Interior was not factory and the engine was just a 2 bbl 315 poly (in the wrong colour) but I still weep)

"The chrome, exterior paint and interior were redone with over $23,000 in receipts included." Ouch.

its a "sedan" man... and 55-56 dont get any respect...

Sedans are already the Rodney Dangerfields... but that should have went for a bit more.

It's a Lancer 4 door hardtop NOT a sedan so maybe not as cool as a 2 dr Lancer Hardtop but still cooler than a 4 door post sedan. Should have been higher.

I would argue that this 4dr hardtop is more interesting than a more common 2dr hardtop. Definitely a good buy on a very clean car!

Agree, 4 dr hardtops are usually better proportioned for big cars of this size, on a smaller car, not so much. Also agree, it was a very good buy at that price!
It makes no financial sense to restore anything other than a very highly desired car any more.

I've noticed a great deal of car price weakness of late. It's inevitable really, with the prime '50s/60s car loving generation (us!) getting old there will soon be a glut of these cars and a declining pool of buyers... sell now and avoid the rush! Or conversely, save your pennies and pick up that car that you always wanted for cheap! It's going to happen... sooner or later!

Not sure how true that is on a 56 Dodge but the factory thought that it would be a winner based on the BS in the press release:

It's $11,000 hammer price but after buyer's premium that comes to $24,564,102.

Um no... The prices on Barrett Jackson's website reflect hammer + commission. Even factoring in paying state taxes and titling fees and your still at about $12k or so
