Lot 718 is a limited-production 1959 Dodge Custom Royal Super D-500 convertible featuring high-performance factory upgrades.
The car, restored in 2005 by Tom White (interior redone by Jonathan Chase of Skin and Bones Restorations), has been featured twice in Hemmings magazine and has won awards at Meadowbrook, Greenwich, Newport and other concours and was part of a special display at the New England Concours d’Elegance in 2017, when it went back to White for a full mechanical and cosmetic service.
The car has all the Super D-500 options, including power seats with swivel option, Autronic Eye, power windows, auto-dimming rear view mirror, automatic transmission, power steering and brakes. It also has a fully rebuilt 383cid V8.
The car is part of the John Staluppi Cars of Dreams Collection.
Barrett-Jackson’s annual Palm Beach auction is scheduled for April 12-15 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach.
