Very Sharp Convertible Mopar! Stout 383 V8, Auto, PS, PB, Great Paint/Interior!
Back in the early ’60s, you could buy a turn-key racecar from your local Dodge dealer, and it would look a lot like this 1964 Dodge Polara 500 convertible. Of course, the full-race machines were incredibly rare, but the guys who knew their hardware also knew that when they saw a car that looked like this industrial-strength Mopar, they should probably steer well clear of it lest they get badly hurt.
As for everyone else, well, don’t say we didn’t warn you. Just because it was built to pound the pavement doesn’t mean it wasn’t also comfortable and stylish inside, where a recently refreshed red-and-white interior absolutely steals the show. With big-car comfort and sporty twin buckets flanking a stock center console, it balances just the right amount of flash with no-nonsense attitude.
Thanks to impeccable care throughout the decades and since this car was refreshed, the engine bay is really clean, and the condition of the paint-matched inner fenders and firewall speaks volumes about the easy life this car has led. A 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission doesn’t seem to mind munching on all that torque, and with highway-friendly gears in the 8.75-inch rear, it seems that this car is a bit of a sleeper, too.
