1963 Dodge Polara
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This beautiful Polara 500 convertible possess the most three of the most desirable automotive attributes - style, comfort and performance. A combination of a very well maintained original car and correct restoration efforts the Polara is in exceptional condition, both physically and mechanically. The laser straight body is presented in the original Ivory White color with the its red accent striping and chrome surround. The unique grill, body trim and chrome brightwork all look great, a testament to the terrific care the Polara has received its entire life. Under the hood is the powerful, factory-correct 383 cubic inch V8 engine equipped with a four-barrel carburetor. Horsepower is rated at a stout 330 providing plenty of thrust for this full-size convertible. In the sixties, Chrysler Corporation cars came with “pushbutton automatics” — rather than moving a lever or turning a knob, car owners could push the button for the gear they wanted. This unique feature is certainly a different approach from traditional column and console shifters. Power brakes and power steering add to the experience, making driving a delight. Highly equipped from the factory this Dodge features air conditioning, a rarely ordered option, especially on convertibles. Similarly, the power operated convertible top makes open-air motoring a breeze. Inside the very clean cabin are a pair of two-tone bucket seats, center console and full seat belts, front and rear. The Polara rides on gleaming Magnum 500 wheels on B.F. Goodrich Silvertown radial redline tires. This beautiful convertible is in excellent running order and is the perfect car for open top driving any day of the year!
