1964 Dodge Polara 500's

I have two 1964 Polara 500's that I picked up last year.
One is in the process of restoration. This 500 needed new floor pans, which I got from a donor car. This Dodge is a 318 car with the floor shift console. When finished it will sport the original paint colors, blue with a white top, and a black interior.
In short, the goal for this 500 is to make it close to stock.
I'm in a toss up decision mode presently as to which way I will go with the other 500. This 500 will most likely end up with a 440 and maybe a 4 speed. Now it also has the floor shift automatic. The Dodge will either wear a black paint job, or perhaps the red used in 1964 Polaras. This 500 has a red and white interior.
In the past I also had a really nice 1963 500, one I really am sorry for selling! It was a Max Wedge car, but when I got it a 361 was installed. It also had a 3 speed floor shifter. Rare! I did not know what I had. The only saving grace was that I traded it in on a 1967 RT. The RT is long gone too.
These two 1964 Polara 500's replaced the '63 and '67
Love these Mopars.
You have a really neat Web site!
Double the Mopar pleasure, Gary!
You have a couple of extra cool Dodge's there.
Good luck with both restorations.
Thanks for the compliment on the Web site as well. "Love these Mopars" sums it up nicely. :-)
