1956 Dodge body sytle ID help

Recommended Posts

This 1956 2 door hardtop recently wandered into the yard. It has no body tag on cowl like the other 2 55/56 Dodge I have in inventory. I know the body tag is steel and sometimes falls off, but there is no screw holes on cowl or any signs this car ever had a body tag on cowl. Anyone one got any ideas?

Does it have the shift handle sticking out of the dash? If so, it is a 1955 Custom Royal Lancer two door hardtop. If it is a push button automatic, it is a 1956. The 1955 is 6 volt. The 1956 is 12 volt. What else do you want to know about it? Looks like it has 1955 door handles. Looks l9ike this one....

Rear shot. All the royal lancers I've seen appears slightly different .  This has no chrome "fins" and taillight is more plain. 


I see now that it is the "Coronet Lancer" according to my books.
