With the advent of the Space Race automakers tried many ways to build on the hype. Ushering in the ‘60s is the Polara from Dodge, with the name being a reference to the Polaris star. The Dodge Polara was produced from 1960 to 1973 with four generations under its belt. Arguably the second generation Polara is the most distant in terms of looks compared to the other generations. While the Dodge Polara might be discontinued now, what we have to offer is a 1964 Dodge Polara 500 coupe available to be seen in the Wolverine State, Michigan.
This 1964 Dodge Polara 500 coupe was repainted in a whimsical white with Ram Charger red stripes going around the vehicle in 2014, which is reportedly what the car originally sported. It’s said that the current seller had inherited the car from his father, and as such, it was his father who had done the build on it. The front and rear bumpers have been redone. The door sills and the original front grill has been cleaned. It is reported that the taillight trim is original. The car sits on a set of aluminum American Racing 5-spoke wheels.

An aftermarket Grant steering wheels in red and metal are in place. The original stereo is still installed along with an aftermarket Sony stereo with speakers.
What made the Polara 500 popular was the Max Wedge engine which was able to churn out 425hp of power. It is reported that this 1964 Dodge Polara 500 coupe is equipped with the Street Wedge V8 engine but the seller is unsure whether it is numbers matching, but he believes it to be the original.
