Only 18320 actual miles on this rare D-500 performance model. Same owner since 1966 he bought from his friend who was the original owner. It's a true unrestored survivor that has been maintained and stored in a dry safe garage. No rust or damage to the body. Has original paint sharp colors. Original chrome. Interior is very nice original. Needs 1 simple repair of a seem on the seat. Upholstery carpet headliner door panels are not worn. Dash area is very nice a coupke hours of detailing would make it sparkle. Original trunk with jack and spare. Motor compartment is very clean. With Dodge's success at the track they decided to capitalize and offer a special performance edition to the public. It is said "it was capable of out running anything it came up against" The only visual difference were 2 cross flag 500 emblems. But there was much more then meets the eye. Under the hood was the big 315-260 hp Hemi with solid lifters and 4 barrel carb. Also included was a beefier suspension bigger brakes upgraded steering and bigger exhaust. That package on this stripped down base model with a manual trans made this a factory muscle car. The D-500 broke 306 standing records in 1956. It was equivalent to it's brother the Chrysler 300. This is a rare find. It is on consignment from the widow of it's owner. We are presenting it in its original condition. A proper detail can make this car really impressive. The car runs and functions very well. An independent appraisal was just done at $36000. We have negotiated a very aggressive selling price. They are only original once.I doubt there is a D-500 with less miles! Performance hemi Big brakes Dual exhaust H.D. suspension Air horns
