    Yep, this is science and technology, 1956 style. This guy does pretty well to muscle this big beast around a road course. Pity the poor driver who sees this in his mirror. Frankly, the guy is a little aggressive for vintage racing.

    I LOVED how that hemi powered its way past those Jaguars! At first I had to doublecheck the interior, I couldn't remember if the Chrysler went to a dashboard-mounted rear view mirror in 1956 or 1957, though it didn't have the day/night tab. But that mirror is indeed period for 1956. Sweet video.

    Was it Royal Custom or Custom Royal, which I believe is the correct name? My Father had one of those in 1957, with the optional dual carburetors. That thing was a rocket with the 3-speed pushbutton Torqueflight transmission. In a 2-tone coral and white, of course.

    I'm not sure it was a hemi, though. I think those engines were limited to the Chryslers and the DeSotos (Firedome). And I believe my Mother's 1957 Imperial may have had a hemi, too, but not not tuned as high as the 300. Her later Imperials did not have hemis.

    Ha ha, I had a 56 Coronet 2 door post bought brand new by a school teacher. She said yes to the salesman when he asked if she would like more power in her new car.

    You know what. I think it is Custom Royal, but not quite a Hemi though. It was a semi Hemi .... polyspherical combustion chambers

    And very aggressive for vintage racing. Usually due to the rarity of the cars and the age of the drivers, they cool it just a bit

    And a 1957 Imperial had a 392 Hemi ... one of the most famous drag racing engines of all time for AA fuel

    There's nothing more in the world I would love to do than go racing in an early 60s FE Ford. Give me a 427. I love love love the way these sound.
