In '57 Dodge came out with the D-501 option. These cars were delivered with the Chrysler 354 Hemi. These were left over engines from the 1956 Chrysler 300B production. I've never heard of Dodge producing any cars with the 392. Sorry to say this but its unlikely your hemi is from a '57 Chrysler 300. If so its ID stamping would begin with 3NE57 and it would be equipped with dual 4 bbl. carburetors. All that said and although the 354 was most likely swapped out for a 392 sometime in the past... its still a great car and you should enjoy it.

Just wondering where the info you are quoting comes from, the build date actually sounds a little late for a 57 model.

As noted the NE prefix indicates the engine is from a 57 New Yorker, not a 300. The thing about the 1957-8 Dodges is that a Chrysler Hemi is a bolt in using factory parts (i.e. it can be made to look like it came that way) which I suspect is probably the case with your car. With the exception of the 354s installed in the D501s (which are documented) there is no evidence showing that Dodge ever put Chrysler HEMIs in their cars. There are a LOT of stories that generally get better with each telling but unless you can come up with genuine proof and documentation that is all it is....stories.

Don Garlits is still alive (although going thru some health and personal issues currently). I sure if you contacted the museum in Florida however they would be able to tell you is he ever did own such a car.

As a side note, as Centerline mentions Dodge came out with the D501 in 57 which was a special model with a 354 from the 56 Chrysler 300B. Iíve read a couple of different figures but the general consensus is there were only 50 of these cars built. Those cars can be identified by the special D501 badge on the trunk lid that replaces the regular Dodge D500 badge.
