|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.|
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 Brewers 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.|
|The rear end chunk is a 3:91 SureGrip in a 8 3/4 1965 742 housing.|
|The Dodge has a 1969 mild built 383 big block with a nice cam and Mopar performance 1.5 adjustable rockers.|
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.|
