From the Savage Speed Garage: 58 Dodge


From the kool corner of The Garage comes the latest in an ever growing line of killer equipment. Herr Von Minden has been doing the paint work on this super rare 1958 Dodge Regal Lancer. I don’t know too much (anything really) about the 58 Regal Lancer, but it certainly looks related to that 58 Fury made famous by Hollywood.

Too kool. More pics after the break

    I just bought the same car at Barrett-Jackson/Scottsdale last month. (Jan. ’08) Same colors, everything. I live in Minnesota, and the car was from the collection of a guy in Wisconsin, who is now deceased.
    If you are interested, I would love to share photos, and information about where to get parts, what is correct, (as far as colors), etc.
    Mine is in great original condition, and an older restoration of about 10-20 years ago…I would guess.

    Very cool!
    I am restoring a 1958 dodge coronet four door
    does anyone know about the paint combos?
    code is NNM but I cant tie that to anything on
    the Dodge paint for 1958
    Possibly a spring special option?
    The color of the roof and bottom is a darker metallic brown/ rose tint and the middle a light pink.

    • Steve says

      Do you still have your Regal Lancer, and if so are you restoring it? If not, still interested in selling it?

    I own a few -58 Dodges.
    One Custom Royal Lancer Super D-500 convertible that I bought in 1987 efter the original owner passed away. It has 44.000 miles on it and was ordered with most but not all options. It had the Spring Special Trim installed at the dealership and even “Texan” Special emblems! They did not come on the car from factory but I guess the owner liked them so they have been on the car since -58 as far as I understand.
    And a second -58 Custom Royal Lancer convertible, a very late car that was painted a beautiful Spring Color, Rose Red (I don’t remember the correct namn for the color) and it has a Rose Red and black interior. It has a -59 Dodge speed warning in the speedometer and Spring Trim. I am not sure if the speed warning was installed at the factory but since it is a late -58 it could have been. I bought the car about 15 years ago and it was totally original at that point.
    We are starting on frame off restorations on the two -58 Dodge convertible’s in early January -09 and I am looking forward to doing the two cars.
    I also have a -58 Custom Royal 4dr sedan with a bunch of options, D-500 package, PW but not P-seat, P-antenna, A/C, tinted glass, Posi trac rearend. I have never seen a -58 Dodge with Power antenna before.
    A -58 Royal Lancer 4drht with a Continental Kit and a -58 Coronet 4dr sedan with the Spring Special Trim.
    I ones bought a -58 Regal Lancer D-500 car. It was complete but very rusted. I told a “friend” he could have the rusted out body if he removed all specific Regal Lancer parts so I could rebulid the car using a better body and next thing I knew he had crushed the complete car, nothing was left.

    Regarding the 1958 REGAL Lancer. I owned one back in the early 70’s and after I sold it, I was at a swap meet selling some extra literature. A gentleman came by and was reminicing, as he had worked for Chryser and had helped to publish the sales literature back then. I asked him about the REGAL not being in the sales catalogue and he told me this.

    The ’58 REGAl lancer was a spring edition and was a limited edition, with each dealer only getting 1! They were available in only three color combinations: Red & White, Black & White, or Bronze and White two tones. (Mine being bronze) They had special chrome eyebrows, dual side chrome and dual rear mounted antennas. Other than that they were pretty much a custom royal trim.
