I was looking for 1956 D500 photos at car shows (besides the Detroit Auto Show) but found none (so far)

However, I did find some others - the 1956 Chicago Auto Show and the 1956 Seattle Cavalcade of Cars:

I noticed that all the DeSotos in the top automobile picture features the lavender, plum, and pink(ish) colors. Even the Adventurer is white and lavender that was never a stock factory color. This one had to be a one-off display car that one of the execs had made for show purposes. These were quite popular colors then and are very popular restoration colors today. Two tone plum and lavender with plum being the main color on Fireflite 2 door HT's and convertibles in particular.

The Canadian 56 Desotos could be had in Heather and Magenta as shown in the dealer paint and trim book: (it is a very beautiful colour combination)
