I have previously posted about my 56 Dodge's cowl tag. I recently received scanned copies of the 56 Dodge Accessories brochure (see below). Now I'd like to interpret the cowl tag and the IBM card in light of the brochure info.

My car has Tinted windows, power steering, power brakes, Powerflite, and the Basic, Convenience and Appearance accessories (vanity mirror is missing but it probably was there at the beginning). I don't know how those translate to the Cowl Tag or IBM card.

Dave—I have the same problem—-I purchased a 1956 Custom Royal Sedan last Saturday and can find no information that will help me learn the original paint (263) and trim (3422) and body (835). There has to be a resource available for us! Anything that you can share with me will be greatly appreciated.

George: Welcome to the forum. There aren't many 56 Dodge folks here that are active. I will try to help you as much as possible.

First thing is to post up some photos of your car. Here are some hints about how to do that:

Start at the top of this thread:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=64340&...

I have previously posted a number of 56 Dodge articles to this thread (note it goes over two pages):

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=67189&...

As for paint, I think 263 is Sapphire white, jewel black and aquamarine, based on this thread:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=63553&...

which includes this:



Body 835 = same as mine = 4 dr sedan

Trim: 3422 = too many numbers. Should only be three numbers as far as I know and I would have thought that it would be 541, 542 or 543 (?)

For the Custom Royal Sedans, so far I know:

541 = two tone blues
542 = black and white
543 = might be the two green tones

Have a look at this thread:

I am emailing you this directly as well.
