My old car. Sold it back in 2015 or 2016 at the Hollywood Wheels Auction at Amelia Island, FL. I believe it sold for $34-36k, can’t remember the exact figure at the moment. It really is a sweet car. Solid body, mint interior, and loaded with factory options. My dad bought it out of the Ellingson Car Museum in Minnesota back when I was a kid and it was a frequent favorite family car while I was growing up. Looking forward to seeing it again this weekend in Dallas.

Pretty sure the answer is NO. Tailight above the back-up light and a chrome piece below the back-up light:

About the reverse light:

The lights in the rear bumperette is a Plymouth only feature only and was not available at DeSoto & Chrysler. Not sure about Dodge

@ Peter
you sold a nice car,- did you restore it once or does it survive all the years since you was a child...

No, it was exactly as you see it here. Never needed to do anything to it. It’s been repainted and the engine has been resealed and repainted before we got it, but not rebuilt.

Good memories.

Sadly no. I’ve changed computers 3 times since then, so those pics would be buried in a backup file somewhere. if they have the hood open this weekend I’ll grab a pic.

To be fair, the car was never restored, just repainted and the engine resealed and repainted. Interior and chassis are all original. Good car worth about $35-40k, but stuck with an owner who wants significantly more.
