I started a 55 Plymouth Body code thread this AM and some of the responses to that one were really for 56 Plymouths. I said that I was going to also start a 56 Plymouth thread (in the future), BUT I guess I better get it going sooner than later, as in NOW.

This is what I hope to fill in:

This was one response in the 55 Plymouth body code thread (I think Igor meant 56 Plymouth) (I don't necessarily agree with him - yet):

Another response to the 55 Plymouth Body Code thread (mine in this case), followed by Nathan's

Thanks Igor and Robert. I am going to start a separate thread on 56 Plymouths.

I'm not liking the 55 two-digit codes. Many of them don't jive with the info that I got off the invoice copies.

Also Not sure about the three digit 56 Plymouth codes. I only have on 56 Plymouth body tag for a Belvedere and its BT (body code is 866). See below.

:)




Powerflite - 2020-07-30 5:56 PM

I don't know what the 8 in front of the 2 digit code stands for. Maybe that is V8? But my V8 '56 Savoy 2dr sedan has body code 854. So the last two digits match up.


So now we can start on the 56 Codes in earnest.

Ok, here's what i have - there are at least three types of body code markings

- first used on invoices:

10 Plymouth 6 Taxi
15 Plaza 6 4dr sedan
25 Savoy 6 4dr sedan
62 Fury
69 Belvedere 8 4dr sport sedan (HT)

- second used on LA plates:

P282 = 625 = Savoy 4dr sedan
P293 = 866 = Belvedere 2dr HT

- third used on Detroit and Evansville plates (if they are the same?)

201 = Savoy
301 = Belvedere 4dr sedan
302 = Belvedere 2dr sedan
404 = Fury


I think the invoice system corresponds to the LA system.

Here are the pictures of the two '56 Plymouth body tags I have collected, along with one of my Fury's tag. 1st is a Belvedere 2dr sedan, 2nd a Belvedere 4dr sedan, 3rd is my '56 Fury. The two Belvedere's were made in Detroit, but my Fury was made at Evansville.

Thanks John. Which plant was it built in? I assume that since there isn't a letter after 102, that it was in Detroit - correct?

The numbers used on the invoices is the same like numbers used on the IBM cards and the Chrysler Historical letters.
I suppose that explains the LA tagging. If the first number is an engine (LA tag), it might look like this:


- invoices, IBM:

10 = Plymouth 6 Taxi
14 = Plaza 6 2 dr sedan
15 = Plaza 6 4dr sedan
25 = Savoy 6 4dr sedan
62 = Fury
66 = Belvedere 8 2dr HT (???)
69 = Belvedere 8 4dr HT

- LA plates:

Pxxx = 610 = Plaza 6 TAXI (???)
Pxxx = 614 = Plaza 6 2dr Sedan (???)
Pxxx = 615 = Plaza 6 4 dr sedan (???)
P282 = 625 = Savoy 6 4dr sedan
Pxxx = 862 = Fury (???)
P293 = 866 = Belvedere 8 2dr HT
Pxxx = 869 = Belvedere 8 4dr HT (???)


- Detroit and Evansville plates (if they are the same?)

101 = Plaza 4dr sedan (???)
102 = Plaza 2dr sedan
201 = Savoy (4dr sedan?)
202 = Savoy 2dr sedan (???)
203 = Savoy 2dr HT (???)
301 = Belvedere 4dr sedan
302 = Belvedere 2dr sedan
303 = Belvedere 4dr HT (???)
304 = Belvedre 2dr HT (???)
305 = Belvedere Conv. (???)
404 = Fury

Robert, your list is wrong. I just showed you that a Belvedere convertible has a code 309. And a Savoy 2dr hardtop should be 204, right?

Ok, you're right

1xx = Plaza, 2xx = Savoy, 3xx = Belvedere, 4xx = Fury
xx1 = 4dr sedan, xx2 = 2dr sedan, xx3 = 4dr HT, xx4 = 2dr HT, xx9 = Conv.


101 = Plaza 4dr sedan
102 = Plaza 2dr sedan
201 = Savoy 4dr sedan
202 = Savoy 2dr sedan
204 = Savoy 2dr HT
301 = Belvedere 4dr sedan
302 = Belvedere 2dr sedan
303 = Belvedere 4dr HT
304 = Belvedre 2dr HT
309 = Belvedere Conv.
404 = Fury 2dr HT

According to the «MOPAR PASSENGER CAR PARTS LIST» book, all 1956 Furys were built in Detroit Plant;
However the IBM-card one of them says overwise…
This one built in Evansville…
That’s oddly…

I do see the 62 body code = Fury and the Evansville VIN. I also see "RAIL" and the Route = 5? (upper right corner)(from Column 10)

All '56 Furys were built at Evansville, for sure. Every body tag on them are always 404-E XXXX. That parts list statement is wrong.

A little better table.
The blue codes are just a guess. They need confirmation.
