Sometimes I see people advertising 56 Dodge D500s as the car that set the records at Bonneville. Whatever their motive, that is not true. The tests were done in the fall of 1955, well before the December 22 1955 announcement of the D500 option. This advert from the Dec. 1955 issue of Mechanix Illustrated had to be set up for printing well before Dec. (probably Oct. 1955). SO there is that and perhaps more importantly, the mention of the 230 hp engine. Er...that is the Power Pack (4 bbl dual exhaust) 315 Poly option, not the 260 D500 hemi. Just sayin'

In this case FL stands for "Funland" and the picture war allegedly taken in 1960, but since there are no newer than 59 models, I guess it is 1959, or late 58.
