1964 Dodge Polara Convertible

I stumbled across this Dodge in April, 2001 parked in a garage in Long Beach, California.

The guy had an Impala for sale, which my friend thought he wanted to buy. We didn't like the price, though, and we said we really preferred a Mopar.

"Do you have anything else?" we asked him.

He took us out back and there we found 200 cars; he thought there was a Mopar in there somewhere.

Well there was!

The 1964 Dodge was sitting in a room by itself, for 14 years, all covered up, not running, needing paint, a new convertible top, wheels etc.

The guy knew the lady that bought the car, brand new, at Goodwin Dodge in Fullerton, California. It was a triple black car with air conditioning, remote mirror and push button Torqueflite.

Well, needless to say, I bought it!

Since then I put in a new battery, fuel pump, new oil pump, new wires, new gas tank and she started right up and ran great. Then I put on new brakes, (wheel and master cylinder), rebuilt the carb, installed new shocks, new 17 inch tires and wheels and twin two and 1/4 inch exhaust with 2 chamber Flowmasters. I also put in new carpet, door panels and quarter panels.

The original 383, 2 barrel now really runs great.

After all that work, I made a commitment to buy a 1958 Chrysler New Yorker Convertible; regrettably space requirements dictate that I put the Polara up for sale.

I am asking $16,900 or beat offer. Interested? Contact me at e-mail or phone (714) 970-3934; Cell (714) 307-0857, Fax (714) 970-2022 -- Ask for Börje

Great car, Börje!

Your Dodge was a jewel among those "off brands" in that guy's back storage area. :-)

Selling the car is a tough decision, but a '58 Chrysler convertible is quite a ride too!

Whoever buys the Polara will have a fun car for certain.
