The Dodge is amazingly solid for being a Michigan car; I can only guess it must have never been driven in the snow.
The Mopar made its way out to Oregon through its second owner who was using it as a daily commuter around town and for summer road trips to Alaska.
|I bought the car for a good price, becoming the cars third owner.|
With the online help of Wally Breer (of the 1962-1965 Mopar Web Sites Mail List Clubhouse), a destroyed 1964 Dodge Polara for a parts car, and a lot of careful measuring and welding, I transformed the four door into a 2 door post ride.
|My long term goal for the Dodge is to use it as an A990 tribute car.|
The Dodge is an ongoing process and now I am in the process of doing bodywork in prep for painting it dark blue metallic.
|Part of me doesnt want to paint it at all: I like its rough look,
reminds me of Frankenstein.
