Does any forum member know if Tim Dupont still owns the 1956 Dodge D500-1??
My neighbor drove a 1956 Dodge 500-1 in the 1957 Daytona race (Bernie Hentges Car #81).
He has pictures of the car which he drove from the factory (Highland Park) to his shop in Minnesota. I would like to get Bernie in contact with whomever now has the car as he has vivid recollection of many details on that unusual vehicle.

Yes Tim still owns his white D500-1 and still lives in Utah.  I have several pictures of his car.  I had a yellow and white Custom Royal D500-1 (Yellow & White) that was featured in Cars & Parts in December of 2000.

Ron & Tim:
THANKS for your replies. I had about given up on reaching Tim. The last number I had for him was in Colorado. I`ll get Bernie in contact with Tim. I know that Bernie will be able to answer any questions Tim might have about how the D500-1s were originally delivered. Tim will probably enjoy the stories about Bernie racing his D500-1 in the 1957 Daytona race.

I was able to contact Tim and arrange for him to speak with Bernie.
If Tim post here, maybe he`ll share the results of their conversation.
THANKS for ALL you help!!!

cspiteri, If you, in the top of this page, "search mopar Muscle" type in 1956 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer - Total Recall... You'll find a story here that was done on this subject, first one in list. I was trying to find a photo to see what your speaking of is how i came across this. May-be you already know this but some others may be interested. It has to do with Tim getting it started, so i thought you might enjoy it... And Mike Yes, Welcome to the site..Ron. Mopp 0204 01 Z1956 Dodge Custom Roy
