General description :
1963 Dodge Polara To compete with the Chevrolet Impala and Ford Galaxy, Dodge created the Polara. This began as their full size model but in later years was reduced in size to be a more intermediate sized car. Fitting with the 60's the Polara was named after a reference to a star which went with the excitement surrounding the Space Race at the time. This 63 hardtop model is a very clean classic that has undergone a complete restoration. Prior to being restored the car had 79,552 miles and since completed has been driven 350. The restoration involved every component and the car received a nice Red paint job that has a very clean finish. All of the glass was replaced and the stainless/chrome replaced or repaired as needed. All of the metal work is in great condition with a nice shine. The lights are all working properly including the fog lights that these cars had uniquely inset into their front grill. Matching Red factory wheels with hubcaps are in place and wrapped with Hankook Optimo 225/70/15 tires. Powering the car is a 426 Max Wedge Super Stock motor that was bored .030 over. The motor puts out plenty of power and incorporates after market Wedge cast steel heads, a cross ram, two four barrel factory racing carburetors, a comp roller cam and rockers, MSD ignition box and MSD distributor. Keeping it always running cool is the added Be Cool aluminum radiator and electric fan. The car has super stock factory exhaust with factory cutouts that deliver a very nice sound. All new S/S gas and brake lines were used in the rebuilt as well as a new inline tube and new emergency brake cable. Paired with the motor is a 727 Automatic push button transmission and 3:90 posi rear end. The interior of the car is done in Red which nicely matches the exterior paint. The vinyl upholstery work looks like new and the car utilizes a split bench seat up front with center fold down arm rest. The dash utilizes all of the original components except for an added underdash gauge pod. The only non working feature on the car is found in the interior with the radio which is not currently working but is the original radio. A tilt column was added in front of the driver and painted to match the rest. If you like mopars and you like unique you aren't going to find something as cool as this classic Polara. These are rare cars you don't see very often and the Max Wedge motor makes it even more of a conversation starter. It runs and drives just as great as it looks so check it out while it's still available. Make this rare Mopar yours for the low reduced price of only $84,000.00 $79,900.00!

By 1920 Dodge had become the second biggest car manufacturer in the USA, unfortunately the same year both of the brothers died, the company in turn to was sold to Chrysler Corporation in 1928. Dodge found a niche Chrysler Corporation lineup above low-priced Plymouth and medium-priced DeSoto, but somewhat below the top-of-the-line Chrysler
