Looks like it had most of the spring special items on it, originally. Gobs of rust from the underside pictures, so that's not great, but I do like the 3 speed manual shifted 6 cylinder.

You are looking at a 1958 Dodge Coronet 2-Door hardtop...this is a 3 speed manual car with a flat 6 cld engine, it has a solid body, this is a running and driving car that needs restoring! I feel that my price of $8,500 is very realistic for a classic vehicle like this one with the potential that this vehicle has.

I strongly agree. In fact, I don't like any of the spring special items, except for the grille emblem. Other than that, they all make the car look worse. I'm guessing by the short length of trim under the fin, that this originally had the check mark style trim at the back, with the full, wide spring special trim under it. Probably for the best that it's missing. The new owner could install '57 Dodge style trim instead, which will look much better, and was an option in '58.

What I’m really baffled over is. My 57 custom royal I had listed for 5500 which had way less rust and far better shape. Never had any interest. Wish this person the best but I think he is doing a lot of the stuff our leaders are pushing

No, this car doesn't have the front bumper guards (teeth), nor the rear bumper guards. That option is actually kind-of rare to see on a Coronet. So it has to stand for something else.
Options it has that you didn't mention:
Radio
Map light

I know that many spring special '58 Dodge didn't come with all the spring special features. And there are multiple options for side trim as well. I expected that to be delineated by the options somehow, but not sure if that was done at every factory. Based on the LD1-7176 VIN, it looks like this car was manufactured at the Detroit plant. I'm not sure how it differs based on Detroit vs. Los Angeles vs. Newark.

Any idea what the "A" is there for under the schedule?

I think the 5 in the 25th position might be the AccoustiFoam headliner (this car had it).  Not sure about that code though...

Very interesting car - one of only 715 Coronet Lancer Coupes built with the Getaway Six.  One of only 3,413 1958 Dodge sixes built with a manual transmission.  Mileage might be original given the good condition of the pedals.  

Lotsa haters on the spring trim.  I love it though!

The schedule A is nearly universal.  I think I may have seen one data plate with a schedule B - darned if I can find an image though.

I cannot make out the subtitle on the dealer nameplate.  Looks like it is broken off "EEDMAN" - cannot distinguish the city

 

Funny - it has a radio too.  You would think that would be accessory group 2, but perhaps the radio was added later - the knobs are not stock.

1958 Dodge Optional Codes that ends on “5”:

305 = Power Tail Gate Window
315 = Appearance Deluxe Accessory Group
325 = Blue Convertible Top Color
345 = Heater
355 = Front Bumper Guards
375 = V8 361CID Electronic Fuel Injection Engine
395 = Map and Glove Box Light
405 = Vanity Mirror
455 = Front and Rear Heavy Duty Springs
555 = 3.73 to 1 Rear Axle Ratio
565 = Something about New Car Service
585 = Heavy Duty 70 Ampere Hours Battery
625 = Delivered by Truck

Of these might be fit Map Light (395) only, I think…

Music Master Radio has code 441 (ends on 1);
Acoustic Foam Headliner has code 427 (ends on 7)

Also found in my pictures Coronet Convertible with “4” and Custom Royal Regal Lancer with “5” on the 25th position...

5 under the 58 is for spring special license plate escutcheon and fin end caps. The dealer script is Reedman in Langhorne PA. I’ve worked for them since 2004, now Reedman-Toll.

Lancer Mike, I looked at this car for you back about 11 years ago, it was in NJ at the time.

Cool, thanks. Do you have other spring special option codes for the '58 Dodge? Also does the 463 code indicate a specific part of the spring special package like the side trim?

Right-on, Matt!  I thought it looked familiar, but couldn't place it.  So wouldn't the fin end caps and license plat escutcheon be included when 3 is in the 18th position???

3 under the 46 is the side trim and grille emblem package. The license plate escutcheon and fin end caps were a different package and were under 58. License plate escutcheon without fin end caps was a 4 under 58.

The license plate escutcheon and fin end caps were a different package and were under 58. License plate escutcheon without fin end caps was a 4 under 58.


Thanks Matt. It is very valuable information.
So,
Tag code 584 – order code 384 – Rear License Plate Frame “Escutcheon”
Tag code 585 – order code 385 – Rear License Plate Frame “Escutcheon” and Fin End Chrome Inserts

Well,
What code would be in, if a car has equipped with Fin End Chrome Inserts only, as a separate option?
Is it “3”?
Tag code 583 – order code 383?

By the way,
Do you know what the tag code 591 is mean? (a "1" on the 26th position)
Thanks.

Not sure about fin end caps only, my theory would be a 3, never seen a car with just those. Also not sure about the number 1 under 59, that is usually blank.

I like this car. Never had any idea about the "Spring Special" trim until today.

I'm spoiled out here in the desert. I paid less than this for a 100% rust-free '61 Pioneer 2-door post, but in all fairness, this car is probably a bit more desirable market-wise than my own.

I myself will take the unibody/Slant combo any day, because I feel it makes for a better daily. I always wanted a flathead car, though.
