I am looking for an ignition relay for a 56 DeSoto Firedome Seville.

Have been told it is part # 1658997 or Autolite RAJ 4001.

I am not sure of the difference in the part for later years which I have seen online but not for 1956.

Any help will be appreciated.

Based on the part number you provided, partsvoice.com shows that Collector's Auto Supply has one. It's worth a call!

My experience with Collector's Auto Supply is that they are horribly expensive. Best bet is to search ebay or get one off a parts car.

My 55-58 parts book says that 1842546 will also work. That was used for 57-8 Desoto and Chrysler as well as 56 Desoto and Chrysler.
