1959 Dodge Royal Lancer 2-Door Hardtop

The Dodge Custom Royal, produced from 1955 to 1959, represented the top-tier trim level above the Royal and Coronet models. The 1959 Dodge model boasted enormous tailfins that extended from behind the doors all the way to the rear, resembling sleek wings detached from the side panels.

The iconic design features of the era, such as bold eyebrows over the headlights, prominent protruding bumpers with intricate grillwork, and dynamic jet-inspired elements, showcased the flashy and extravagant spirit of the 1950s.

Coupled with powerful engines, these large cars epitomized the flamboyance and optimism of the era. The 1959 Dodge was aptly described with the slogan, “The Newest of Everything Great and the Greatest of Everything New.”
