Rarely do you find a vibrant two-tone classic like this for a value price. So take a longer look at this 1955 Dodge Royal. It has the right vintage appearance everywhere from the hardtop profile to the V8 under the hood. But the upgraded style, overdrive transmission, and A/C interior are there to make this classic a good cruiser in modern times.
1955 was a great year to be a Mopar fan. A new Royal debuted, and it was a more imposing design. There were crisply defined lines on the pointed nose, flared fenders, and a hint of tailfin. And because artful chrome is essential to a 1950s machine, you have cool bumper details like how the rear one contours around the tailfin and the split grille wraps around the corner just like the front bumper. The paint takes Mopar's later Plum Crazy purple and mates it with a tasteful silver. Plus, the trim knew how to separate the two colors with unique lines that highlighted the detailed hood and sweeping sides. The paint is an overall driver-quality presentation, and that's great for a driver-ready car like this. And as you look over the whole package, you can see investments to make this an easy cruiser. On the exterior, this includes the color-matched 15-inch wheels that let you fit modern tires and clean headlights with integrated bright LED turn signals.
Just like the exterior, the interior is the right mix of vintage and well-placed upgrades. It starts with a stylish black that shows a newer feeling in the upholstery, carpeting, door panels, and headliner. Nothing looks out of place, right down to the insignia steering wheel and working dome light, but it all just has the freshness of a proper investment. So it feels like the right kind of car you'll want to cruise. And when you roll down the side glass on this hardtop, you can still stay cool thanks to the upgraded cold-blowing air conditioning.
If you're a Mopar fan, you'll love showing off the engine bay. The Polyspheric 270 cubic-inch Super Red Ram motor is correct for the era and a rare sight today. It's built well with cool upgrades like a hot rod style air grabber, an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an upgraded intake, and an H-pipe dual exhaust. You'll also spot nice upgrades for a driver, like that aluminum radiator, an alternator, and that battery moved to the trunk for better weight distribution. The motor is a strong runner, and its calling card was torque. So they're great to drive. To complete this proper cruising machine are features like power brakes, front discs, and an upgraded four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.
This is an impressive hardtop that gives you classic V8 cruiser style but with overdrive, A/C, and all the other upgrades you really want. So at a price like this, you know it's a deal that will be moving fast. Call today!!!
