Restoration just completed on this beautiful, rust free, 1956 Dodge Lancer Custom Royal with the 315 CI Polly engine with a 4 BBL carburetor. The distributor has been converted to a Pertronics ignition system and the engine starts as soon as you touch the key. This car is basically shock except for the wheels and tires, and exhaust system. The odometer reads 43250 and I believe this may very well be the original mileage based on the condition of the interior. I have no documentation to confirm that. The front door and rear panels and dash appear to be original. Front and rear seats have been reupholstered in a beautiful Leather Like vinyl material. Carpet is new in a loop tweed charcoal color. The interior was done when I purchased the car. Not sure how long ago. All the instruments including the clock and AM radio work properly. ( the clock doesn't keep very good time though ) The steering wheel is in fantastic condition. I believe all the sheet metal is original to the car and had no rust of any kind before repainting. Floor and trunk pans are original with NO signs of repair or replacement. All front suspension and rear end parts were removed, sand blasted, repaired as necessary, painted and reinstalled on the car. The rear end has all new bearings and seals throughout. The engine, transmission and rear end perform perfectly with absolutely no issues. You could get in this car and go anywhere you wanted to with absolute confidence. It rides really good too.
The car was originally White, Iridescent Charcoal, and Pink. The top was not repainted and I believe it is the original paint. The Iridescent Charcoal was repainted the same color and the Pink was painted a 57 Chevy Dawn Pearl color with drastically improved results. The paint is a color coat / clear coat application wet sanded and buffed to a brilliant shine. All of the frame and under side of car was thoroughly cleaned and painted with Bill Hiersh chassis black.
All the chrome has been redone.
This is a very solid car and you would look a long time to find one in this condition. It's not a #1 car but it's better than a #2.
I will be willing to install any other tire and wheel package you would prefer up to $1600 if you don't like the wheels and tires on it now. ( I keep the ones on it now of course) Any cost above $1600 would be your responsibility.
I can supply more pictures on request. If you have any questions you can call me @ 804-314-7599 Jerry
There is NO Warranty so I encourage inspections if you like.
I have this car for sale locally and reserve the wright to end the auction at any time.

Toyota and Lexus stormed the 2014 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards, winning a combined 18 categories including best brand and best luxury brand. This marks the third year in a row that both automakers have won the Brand and Luxury Brand resale value awards. In all, Toyota won 11 categories and Lexus won seven.
Honda made a good showing, as well, winning two segments (Accord Plug-In Hybrid and Civic Si) and putting one car on the top-10 Best Resale Value list (CR-V). Chevrolet did even better, winning two segments (with the V6 Camaro and the Corvette) and placing three cars on the top-10-overall list (again, the Camaro and Corvette, plus the Silverado 1500).
The other winners came from Jeep, Dodge, Infiniti, Subaru and Audi. To give you a clearer picture of the Toyota and Lexus domination, their 18 mentions represents more than half of the 34 awards (including the top-10-overall list).
The Aficionauto host Christopher Rutkowski has a real passion for original and replica cars from movies and television, whether they are from James Bond, Jurassic Park, or incredibly obscure Japanese shows. However, he might have outdone himself this time because he hopped into one of the biggest automotive stars of contemporary cinema. This 1970 Dodge Charger appeared in Fast & Furious and came back in Fast Five, where Paul Walker actually drove it. The menacing, black muscle car will make its return to the franchise in the seventh film, too.
The Fast and Furious Charger is a real beast no matter how you look at it. The interior is nothing more than two seats and a roll cage, and as the video shows, this thing vibrates constantly like a coiled mass of muscle ready to strike. The camera can barely stay in place most of the time. Also, Dom's Dodge is more than happy to do a smoky burnout and leave the driver partially deaf afterward from its wonderful, ear-splitting engine roar.
The Aficionauto also interviews the man who controls the keys to this beast. Bob Hartwig was once an F-15 pilot, but he also loved Hollywood vehicles. Now, he's a partner at Picture Car Warehouse, a company with about 850 cars that supplies vehicles to film studios. This Charger definitely seems to be Hartwig's favorite in the collection, as it should be.
Want to get your hands on a new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and can't wait to be the first to get one? Las Vegas will be the place to be on September 27. That's where Barrett-Jackson will auction off the very first example. And you'd better bring your checkbook, because the bidding is sure to be fierce with all the proceeds going to charity.
The supercharged Challenger with VIN 0001 has been hand-painted in Stryker Red (usually reserved for the Viper) and features special badging, documentation and accompanying memorabilia - not to mention, of course, that 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8. The car will be on display this weekend as well at Barrett-Jackson's Hot August Nights auction in Reno.
