    Okay, I stand corrected. Apparently, there were a few '57 Dodge D501's with the 354 Chrysler Hemi, including Arnie Beswick's. I had never heard that before nor have I ever seen one, and I was around during those early years with the S/S crowd. I guess that none of those 354 conversions ever made it out west. It was not until 1962 that NHRA mandated that all cars in the stock class had to meet minimum production availabilty standards, so it's not unlikley that NHRA would have permitted a 354 inch Chrysler in a '57 Dodge provided that Arnie had the documentation to back it up.

    Arnie and his '56 Dodge D500, with the 315" Dodge Hemi engine. A fine engine backed up by a crappy 3-speed manual trans, the bane of all early Dodge/Plymouth racers until the Torqueflight trans took over a few yeasr later. Arnie was always brand loyal, and would never have left the Mopar world if they had had a decent manual transmission. Look how long Arnie stayed with Pontiac as an example, even after GM pulled out of racing. Remember, Arnie is the guy that was given a 427 A/FX Comet by Mercury, a full time factory gig, and tuned it down to go back to racing a Pontiac with no factory support...

    Has anyone ever found a photo of Arnie drag racing the 1957 Dodge D501?

    NY 7 & US 20, just west of Albany. NY7 is a route that begins at the Pa. border just south west of Binghamton and proceeds northeasterly to the Vermont border just north of Albany. Duansburg is a rural community located at the intersection of US 20, an East West federal road the was the precursor for and stills runs parrallel Interstate 90. If you happen to be on an East West trip through NY, I would encourage you to seek out and travel on RT 20 instead of pounding along the dull toll road that is the New York thuway. Especially if you are driving your HAMB ride.

  18. That's an interesting load; '63 Impalas, a '62 Pontiac, '64 Impalas, a '61 Impala, and a foreign job (MG?)

    The two door hardtop at the lower rear is a dead-ringer for my own.

  24. By far a much better looking car offered in 1961 than others did. IMO, GM made some of the best looking cars at the time.

    The 354’s had dual quads and the Chrysler 15” wheels and rear end. Note the emblem on the deck lid.

    It's kind of funny to me that this particular D501 was never photographed running at the drag strip...
