1955 Dodge Lancer
The Dodge division of the Chrysler Corporation has long been known to produce quality vehicles that excite car lovers around the world. During the 1950s, the story was very much the same, and the company produced several classic cars that their owners proudly display at classic car shows across the United States each year. The Lancer nameplate was a great addition to several different lines during this time period. These included the Coronet, Royal, and Custom Royal lines. The Lancer nameplate, however, only applied to the pillarless 2 and 4-door hardtop versions of each model.
1955 was the first model year for the Dodge Lancer nameplate, and it would continue for several years. For the 1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer, a 270 cubic inch V8 engine was available. It produced 183 horsepower at 4400 rpm. In terms of torque, the 270 engine produced 245 pound-feet at 2400 rpm. Both manual and automatic transmission options were available for this classic car as well.
Although the Dodge Lancer was not its own model, it certainly added a special something to the Dodge Coronet, Royal, and Custom Royal models. What do you think about the 1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer? Share your thoughts about this classic car with us by leaving a comment in the section below.
