Deep down I completely agree. If all the model manufactures quit today. I've got more then my share to hold me over there rest of my days. Although I would definitely take notice if the wanted to do a late 50s Dodge or Desoto as a last hurrah .
dealer brochure . They typically used pilot or pre-production cars for pictures. A good example look at the 1970 challenger brochure. It shows one with a body colored shaker hood bubble......also Not avail on the production car.
Only speaking for A 1956 Chrysler 300 used a 331 Hemi A 1956 Desoto Adventure used a 341 Hemi If they're similar in outward appearance I cant say one way or the other. I'm not very well versed on the Mopar cars this old, so any other differences I would have to dig into further, ( a good friend of mine has a a 1955 300 and he knows these cars really well ) But my gut feeling is there are enough differences it would be basically be an all new tool. And Im ok with that ( I actually would prefer either a 57-59 model years myself ) Or if they really want to float my boat how about a 55 or 56 Imperial.
