These early Dodges were available only with optional V8 engines of up to 413 cu in (6.8 L). These mid-sized Dodges (and similar models from Plymouth) competed successfully as stock cars in NASCAR races, and in stock-automatic classes in drag racing, where their smaller size and lighter weight gave them an advantage over the larger cars from Ford and General Motors.
For 1963 and 1964, the Polara 500 was available only as a convertible or hardtop coup. For the 1963 model year, the wheelbase was increased to 119 inches (3,023 mm) and the car received new sheet metal. The Dart name was reassigned to Dodge’s line of compact cars that had previously been known as the Dodge Lancer.
In fact the instant success of the NASCAR single 4 barrel carbureted version of the Hemi was overshadowed by the fact that in testing, the dual quad drag racing version was not any quicker than the 426 Max Wedge engine! The release of the Hemi drag race cars was actually then delayed until the engineers worked on the problem which was that a new camshaft was needed.First-year Max Wedge engines were 413 cubic inches and came in 410 and 420 horsepower versions.
