1964 Dodge Polara Additional Info:

Built has a high performance 426 Max Wedge tribute from the crossram to the lightweight bucket seats. It is in exceptional condition, fit and finish is impressive. I drove it home, the car perfomed really well.
EXTERIOR: The fit and finish is what really drew me to this car. The body is absolutely excellent. Rust free metal, laser beam straight, precision fit panels. Hood, doors and trunk fit square and flush. You can squat down and look down the sides and they are straight as an arrow. The factory pinch welds are still showing around the rear wheel well lips. It has a racing style scoop on the hood. It's a factory red car and the paint is polished out like a red mirror. The trim is exceptional too which really makes a difference. Up front the grill is straight and shiny, the headlight bezels are a little beat up. The bumper was rechromed. The moldings down the side are either new or professionally restored. All the stainless around the windows and roof line was professionally straightened and polished. The door handles, mirror look new. In back the tail light panel was restored, bumper was rechromed. the trim on the trunk and around the lock looks new. New rear window. The door jambs are painted real slick, has new weather strip and sill plates. Being a radio delete it does not have an antenna. It also has 1 wiper with the passenger side plugged off. It rolls on a set of steel rims with poverty caps and a meaty size BFG tires. It has a great stance.
INTERIOR: It is completely restored inside and it has some unique features that go along with the race car theme. It's a radio delete with a factory plate, heater delete with an extremely rare bezel and button for ventilation blower, cigarette lighter and sun visor delete. It has the light weight bucket seats Dodge used in their race cars. They are the same ones used in a Dodge van and are stationary. The original bench seat is upholstered to match the back and is included with the car. There is a racing lap belt on the driver side. Red carpet looks new and has correct Hurst shifter coming out of the floor. The instrument panel is mint, metal is painted nicely, the dash pad is curled. It has a walnut steering wheel and column mounted tachometer. The door panels and armrests look new except there are some nicks on the rear panel. The white headliner is excellent.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The Performance built motor is dressed up as a 426 Max Wedge. It actually has a 440 block. The cross ram intake is a correct original ($2,000) with dual 4 barrel Edelbrock carbs with correct air cleaners. It has a set of Doug's headers. All the components look clean and proper- upgraded dual reservoir master cylinder, new alternator, has power steering. New battery bolted down properly and has disconnect switch. Clean metal engine bay painted gloss red. The fender tag is attached, the matching production number is stamped on the core support.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: All solid metal painted red, has a new rubber plaid matte on the floor. Bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are gloss red.
UNDERSIDE: Underneath this car is exceptionally clean. The metal appears to be super dry. The floors are clean, you can actually wipe them with a rag. They've been prepped and sprayed in a semi-gloss black. The lower rockers still have factory pinch welds showing. The lower inner quarters are dry metal and still have clean drain holes. It also has welded in frame rails to prevent body twist. The front end looks like it has been gone through, has a lot of new hardware and components. There's new shocks front and back. Looking up at the motor it is clean. It has extra capacity oil pan, high torque starter and new flywheel cover. It has an 833 4-speed with new linkage. In back it has an 8 3/4 rear with 3.23 sure grip gears. The brakes have been redone. It is upgraded with disc in front. I see new hoses and the e-brake assembly looks complete. The fuel tank looks new. It has a custom exhaust with crossover pipe and Flowmaster mufflers.
I think the race car theme is really cool. It certainly has some real muscle but it is still a car you can drive anywhere. I really enjoyed driving it. They say that the sound of the motor is music to their ears, well this one plays a#1 hit song!
