1958 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer D-500 Two-Door Hardtop
361 cid overhead valve V8 engine rated at 305 horsepower, Torque-Flite three-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 122.0"
As the Forward Look advanced into the future, an attractive and subtle re-style was given to the Dodge line-up with the top-line series being the Custom Royal. All V8 engines were of the "wedge" design, with the D-500 V8 being one of the most popular selections this year. Fitted with a dependable Carter WCFB four-barrel carburetor, the push-button three speed automatic made this model not only a car with great looks, but also outstanding performance. With the base price of $3,026, this performance engine could be added for just another $35.50. Appearing to be a fairly original car, this example, finished in Jewel Black, is fitted with an interior of gray vinyl and fabrics. Under the hood is found power steering and brakes, and also factory air-conditioning. At the time of our inspection the radio was out of the car, but the body appeared to be in very solid condition and while the chrome and bright trim were complete, including the Knight's Head emblems; all possessing a proper patina of age. Survivors from this era are rare, making this car an asset to any dedicated Dodge or MOPAR collection.
