BF Classified: 1959 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer D-500

Seller’s Description: 1 of only 6,278 2-door Lancers produced
Built in Dodge’s Los Angeles, California factory
Original color: Canary Diamond / Pearl

This highly sought-after car was in the process of being restored by a collector who happened to come across a convertible model which he favored. Now she is just waiting for the right person to finish the job. If you’re interested in these rare cars, you simply will never find a better candidate for restoration. The body is in excellent condition after a full frame-off rotisserie restoration – the frame has been powder coated, floors/trunk redone, and the body is nearly ready for paint. No expense was spared in preparing this car for restoration up to this point; there is an estimated $30,000 in re-plated chrome alone.

This car comes with a wealth of original equipment parts, most of which are extremely difficult to the source while others are simply irreplaceable. This car’s journey up to this point has been meticulously documented – I have a 3.5 inch binder full of materials that tell its story, including the car’s original registration from 1959. The car is currently a roller, originally came with a 383 (single 4-barrel carb) mated to a TorqueFlight 3-speed.

I have listed here most of the parts that the car comes with and have attached photos of some of them as well.
