Seller claims it's a numbers matching car, but with aftermarket wheels.

California-Spec air cleaner in the trunk. Might imply the car was shipped there originally. Nice car from what I can see!

Yes, it's a California car. You can tell by the data plate with the tape strip across it. Interior appears to have been redone. Engine rebuilt and inexplicably painted blue.

why is it that the pink cowl tag appears to be from 1958 year . 1959 cowl tags should look like this . This is a real 59 tag d500 car .

You probably missed it: the "Pink" cowl data tag is from an Los Angeles-built car whereas your red tag is from a Detroit built car.

Detroit and LA tags are pretty very different. Ain't this fun??

LA (it says right on the tag):



Detroit:

I can guess:

M3 = 8 = 318 = Fin End Chrome Inserts, Dual Rear Antennas, Rear License Plate Frame (Ornamental Accessory Group #318)
M3 = 9 = 419 = Fin End Chrome Inserts only

M4 = 9 = 429 = Roof Molding

In addition:
419= Sweep Moulding would be (9 is that and 8 is a 318 Acc Group No. 8)
429 = Roof Moulding

another thing I noticed is it has the FLAT dual antenna bases used in 1958 instead of the raised. maybe a early production of the car ..... just used up old stock from 1958 or a california made thing.

I think what you meant was 1126 = November 26, 1958 = 1959 Model Year car

With this face, how can it not be a 1959?

No. It has tapered bases, as it should. Ply and Dodge went with the tapered bases after the 57 model year.

These are 1959 dodges on the green  59 dodge . I zoomed in on the pink cars antennas and they are a flat base.

You really can't tell from the photo. You would have to view the antennas from the rear of the car to see the taper.

I am surprised that there is no D500 badge on the trunk, just the sides. Was that a 1959 D500 thing?

Yes, and if I owned one of these beauties, I couldn't move it fast enough to the trunk, also the ugly square gas tank door and the stupid straight pipe that runs thru the trunk would have to go. I would move the filler pipe to a taillight or the large chrome piece above. I love these cars but what were they thinking?

From the image, it looks like the canted base (with what looks like a home made flat gasket).  Very, very unlikely that any 1959 Dodge should have come from the factory with a flat base, as that was early 1957 only.

Neat looking car!

Pitting/condition on those bases seems much worse than the rest of the chrome, maybe were added from a different car?

I agree on the pitting of the antenna bases , but they are the 59 dodge style antennas not the flat bases style . Also that 4drht was restored back 2000. I talked to the gentleman selling the car . He also said all the chrome items of the back of the car were refurbished .

Yes the pitting is bad on the antenna bases. Tail light and rear bumper were re-plated 20 years ago. Rest of chrome has the slight amount of “dotting”. Very solid car. Slight rust bubbles on bottom of drivers door. But rockers and quarters are solid seat fabric not original but looks good. Couldn’t tell you how it runs and drives though. The seller for the lady who owns it had the gas tank off and line disconnected and it needed a battery.
First I would do is change the wheels to spinners and white walls like it should have. Those knock offs are hideous and the back passenger side is missing the spokes.
