1963 Dodge Polara
Coupe Car for sale by Lafontaine Classic Cars in Milford, Michigan 48381
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
The 1963 Dodge Polara features its original sheet metal, engine, interior and factory Max Wedge exhaust. The Max Wedge originally displaced 413ci, but new ACCUS/FIA rules for 1963 created the 7.0-liter or 427ci limit for racing. Chrysler responded with its first 426 versions for the new model year, the engine in this car being one of then. Topped with a Cross-Ram intake and dual Carter carburetors, the 426ci V8 engine was available in an ultra-high compression 13.5:1 format and this milder 11.5:1 design. It was renewed with rings and gaskets some years ago but is otherwise unmodified. This Dodge shows 36,416 original miles (the title reads mileage exempt). Like most Max Wedge Cars built prior to Chrysler’s 4-speed arrival, it was equipped with a push-button operated Torque Flite 3-speed automatic transmission as well as 3.23:1 rear gear ratio. This vehicle was never converted to race trim and has been well-preserved. Inside the Ivory-painted body, which was refreshed by the original owner in the 1990s before its first resale, are the actual factory-installed two-tone white-an-tan upholstered seats, classic tan metallic dash layout, a Music Master radio and the original carpet. Another unique part of this car is its whitewall tires, a crowning touch to the extra trim on the 500 models, which in this case includes a contrasting tan side trim panel and driver’s side mirror.
