Today’s feature image takes us to Banning, California, which is located thirty-two miles southeast of the City of San Bernardino for a view of seven new 1956 Dodges. The Dodge and Plymouth dealership was located on West Ramsey Street in Banning, although after a brief search the name of the agency was not found.
The signs on the side wall spell out the top-of-the-line Custom, the mid-range Royal, and lower-priced Coronet model. The three models offered are powered by a mix of an inline six-cylinder, the Mopar “A” V-8 o.h.v semi-Hemi, and a new 315 c.i. “Red Ram” Hemi V-8 with a longer stroke that produces a reported 260 h.p.
