1958 Dodge D-500 Royal LancerVin: LD2L3786- Excellent overall condition – Beautiful correct Moss Green Metallic with Eggshell paint- 361 CID 305HP wedge OHV V8 engine which was largest engine available for the year- Authentic Chrysler chrome wire wheels with whitewall radial tires- 3-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission- Continental kit – Dual rear antennasPowerful V8s were no longer exclusive to the expensive cars such as Buick, Cadillac or Chrysler. They were now showing up in everything from Ramblers to Chevrolets. Not to be left out, the Dodge division of Chrysler had an ace up its sleeve. Unlike the Chrysler 300 Series or the newly introduced Plymouth Fury, you could get the most powerful engine available in a Dodge for almost every body style. Introducing the Dodge D-500. The D-500 was a high-performance model derived from the standard Dodge but differing in many ways. It included a heavy duty suspension and other chassis upgrades from the New Yorker and Imperial lines, upgraded brakes, and a high-performance 361 CID 305HP wedge V8. A four-barrel carburetor pushed output to 305HP. “Lancer” was initially Dodge’s name for a pillarless “hardtop;” either coupe or sedan. “Royal” was a V-8-only series, the top of the line until “Custom Royal” upstaged it in 1955. “D-500” signified a more powerful hemi V-8. By 1958 D-500 had become the option code for a 361-cid, 305-hp wedge engine with single four-barrel carburetor. This car is a mid-range hardtop coupe with Dodge’s largest available engine in its next-to-most-powerful state of tune.MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this handsome and correct Moss Green Metallic and Eggshell White 1958 Dodge D-500 Royal Lancer. This car was recently acquired from a collector who only sourced the best examples of the big fin MOPARS of the late 50’s. This D-500 is highly desirable for it’s optional high-performance engine and excellent overall condition Finished in it’s original factory two toned color of Moss Green Metallic and Eggshell White paint and recently professionally repainted, it looks excellent and fresh. Body contours are excellent, as is the brightwork throughout. Doors have nice even gaps and shut well and the continental kit has enabled the fitting of longer 1959 Dodge taillights, a subtle but custom touch. The front chrome bumper is in wonderful shape as well as the rear bumper but the rear bumper does have some small imperfections. The D-500 sits upon a set of authentic chrome Chrysler wire rims with whitewall radial tires.Inside you will find the interior has been recently reupholstered with newer pleated vinyl matching the body colors. The seats are in excellent shape showing no signs of wear or imperfections. The door panels match the seats and are in fantastic condition. The headliner is also new and is in great shape. The lights, blinkers, horn and wipers are in working order. A period correct Faria tachometer has been added to the driver side of the dash. Also found in the dash is the correct AM radio with dual rear antennas. The push button transmission and starter both function as they should.Under the hood you’ll find the optional 361 CID 305HP Wedge Head V8 engine with a single 4-barrel carburetor. Attached to the engine is the pushbutton 3-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission. The engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed, while the undercarriage has a matte black finish.This is a fine example of the MOPAR “Forward Look” designed automobiles of the late 50’s and is a car you must see to believe. The VIN is LD2L3786 and the mileage currently shows 50,961. The car is being sold on a clean & clear title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!Driving Impressions:”The late 50’s MOPARS are special automobiles because they were the prequel to the muscle cars that were soon to be introduced in the 1960′s. These cars were standard models that the factory hopped up with many performance upgrades at the end of the decade. The D-500 was a perfect example of new owners who purchased them to commute to work during the weekdays and then go to the drag strip to race on the weekends. This D-500 has the correct time period aftermarket tachometer installed on the dash and is a neat reminder of the weekend racers of the time.”
