• Preservation class original with just 33,124 miles from new
• Super Red Ram V-8 power, power steering and power brakes
• Near-perfect original interior
• AACA Jr. Award Winner

270 cid “Super Red Ram” V-8 engine rated at 183 HP, PowerFlite two-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 120”


The automobile of the 1950s was change in motion. The decade started with tall and boxy cars but, before it was over, U.S. automakers had created some of the most flamboyant designs in history. Chevrolet and Ford were well underway with the new style, but Chrysler was late to the game. All of that changed when Virgil Exner came over from Studebaker in 1949. Exner was a man of vision and talent, which Chrysler desperately needed in the early 1950s. Exner’s new “Forward Look” made all of Chrysler’s products lower and longer. Evidence of Exner’s amazing work is found in this stunning 1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer that has just 33,124 miles from new.

This Royal Lancer is a preservation car that has received only the care needed to maintain its pristine appearance. So well-kept is this Dodge that it still wears its factory finish of pink and black. Two and even three tone paint schemes were the order of the day in the 1950s and no one did it better than Chrysler. This Royal Lancer’s lines are nicely emphasized with chrome accents that start at the hood and continue all the way to the rear providing the perfect cut line for its two-tone paint scheme. A colorful logo badge on the side proudly proclaims that this Dodge is a Royal Lancer Vice Custom. Dodge’s bumpers for 1955 were massive, with acres of gleaming chrome, all of which presents well on this fine car. The interior of this Dodge could almost pass for a full restoration, but is in fact stunningly preserved in every way. All upholstery is clean and all door panels, carpets, trim pieces, and the dashboard are all in excellent condition. So preserved is this interior that the steering wheel has no cracks. Power for this Royal Lancer comes from a 270 cubic-inch “Red Ram” V-8 engine rated at 183 horsepower. The engine compartment is nicely detailed and this Royal Lancer is also fitted with power steering, power brakes, radio, and heater.

A preservation car is always a delight, and this Royal Lancer takes this concept to a whole new level. As an AACA Jr. Award winner, its condition is solidified by its striking originality, authenticity, and appearance. As they saying goes, “It’s only original once” and this Royal Lancer from the glory days Chrysler’s best years is a car that stands the test of time.
