Your article contains numerous factual inaccuracies. You need to fix them. Otherwise, it makes you look like you don't know what you're talking about. Also it would have been nice to see some 'before' pictures, since you make a big deal out of that.

Makes me miss Neil, neat car. I like what they did with the engine color. I've thought for the longest time that the silver engine paints were originally more grey than bright silver metallic but I don't know for sure.

No.

" The six cylinder engine
used was the 251 CID unit, and the standard V-8 was
again the 303 unit used in the Canadian Plymouths. The Custom Royals built in Windsor, Ontario used a 313 CID unit rated at 235 HP.
For 1957 Dodge was in 4th Place in Canadian automobile sales. There were NO D-500 Hemi
powered Dodges built in Canada during this time period. "

Bill Watson (Chrycoman) would have the answer if he wasn't under the weather.
