The models and body codes are from Mike Petersen's book "1955 Dodge - by the Numbers"

The base images are from the 1955 Dodge full-line brochure.

Codes are very similar to the 1956 Codes (or vice versa) except for 1955 the 6 cylinder car codes start with 1 and in 1956 they start with 6. Similarly, in 1955 the 8 cylinder car codes start with 2 and in 1956 they start with 8. For example, in 1955 a 2dr Coronet V8 sedan would be a 212 whereas in 1956 it would be 812. Likewise, a 2 dr V8 Custom Royal hardtop (Lancer) was a 236 in 1955 and an 836 in 1956.

Cool!
Some corrections for Station Wagons (if we are looking at the ’56 models):

CORONET L6

147 = Suburban 2door Station Wagon, 6P
148 = Sierra 4door Station Wagon, 6P
149 = Sierra 4door Station Wagon, 9P

CORONET V8

247 = Suburban 2door Station Wagon, 6P
248 = Sierra 4door Station Wagon, 6P
249 = Sierra 4door Station Wagon, 9P

ROYAL V8

258 = Sierra 4door Station Wagon, 6P
259 = Sierra 4door Station Wagon, 9P

Sorry Igor. This is all about 1955 Dodges, not 56.
