You got it BB, The key lock hole is about 1 1/2" higher on the 56. Another fun fact on those cars is the 55-56 sedan and wagon use the same wind shield and the nomad, hard top, and convertible use a taller windshield

That is a damn interesting one. It being in the middle is the odd part, I could see it being different 55 or 57 but for the 56 to be different, that is pretty odd.

Well I guess I cheated also. I looked at a picture of each year to find the answer. I would have never known the answer otherwise.

I don't care if anyone had to google it, I never knew they were different until I was looking through a parts catalog . Someone post up something good.

You got it. It never made it into production and that's to bad. Less exotic than the Viper and it was to be priced in the mid $30K range. The Dodge Copperhead was pretty nifty indeed!

Go for it AG!

Since Im at work, I could delve into some really odd gearbox/drivetrain stuff but I don't think that fair.

So hows this:

Billy Durant was an amazing guy; who held several positions in automotive history...what was his last job?
