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
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.
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.
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!
