1964 Dodge Polara 500

June 2010 Mopar of the Month

David writes from Nashville TN: My 1964 Dodge Polara 500 is a California Black Plate Car, (I have the original plates), that was shipped here from Hemet CA. The Dodge is in great shape for a car that has not been fully restored. 1964 Dodge Polara 500, front

I am still trying to put the history of the car together back to first date of purchase. The paint was originally white but has a couple of coats of yellow. The paint and bumpers are a little worn but are still in pretty good shape. The Dodge has new tires, front power disc brakes, a Flowmaster exhaust system, headers and a functional cold air flow Hemi style hood scoop.

I replaced the interior with new Legendary interior seat covers and installed a new carpet.

Mopar specialists Brewer’s Performance supplied all the 4 speed tranny components rebuilt A833 tranny, new clutch kit, shifter, linkages: everything tranny related is new.

The Mopar is a rust free car with all original panels; the cowl, floors and trunk pan are in great shape. 1964 Dodge Polara 500, trunk

My first car was a 1964 Dodge Polara 500 copper in color. I loved that car. It is great to have one back.
Oh, by the way, I traded that 1964 in for a 1968 Dodge Charger, black/orange, and then later traded that one in on a 1971 Dodge Charger, green. Oh to have those 3 still behind a garage!

The Polara 500 is quite a conversation piece at cruise-ins as is. The Dodge is a really nice early B body Mopar. 1964 Dodge Polara 500, rear
