I paid $1000 for it and took a body shop owner with me to verify it's condition. He said it was in remarkable shape, and said if this is what I wanted he suggested I would find no other one as solid as this. Quite a bit of surface rust, but that was it.

The original owner purchased the car for his daughter (it was built at the Los Angeles plant) who drove it for a short time, but really didn't like it. It sat in a field at the father's home for some 15 years. The person I bought it from bought it when the original owner's widow sold items from his estate.

The car had 32,000 original miles on it.

1964 Dodge Polara

An original 383 2bbl has become a 440 4bbl. Professionally restored, but still contains some original trim parts.

I didn't buy it to show, but to drive.

If I can find a fan shroud for it I will begin to correct a low speed cooling problem and hopefully can get in some cruising.

It runs fine out on the open highway.

Thanks, Leon!

Your bodyshop guy was 100 per cent correct! Starting with such a clean Mopar is a WAY ahead start of a project.

Your Polara looks excellent!
