This is the kind of car that gives Mopars their rare reputation. After all, when was the last time you saw a 1968 Dodge Polara hardtop coupe for sale? And this big Dodge is a true cruiser with all the right pieces, including solid V8 power and an A/C interior.
A car like this is large, and it looks like it wants to be in charge. The long hood with recessed grille, angular hardtop, and wide rear desk are imposing. In fact, the car's length is emphasized by the original single band of trim running from stem to stern across the top of the fenders and through the door line. Dodge really built these with style in mind. You see it in the details like the skirted rear wheels, electric shaver taillight panel, and bumpers that love to hug the form and be an integral part of the design. The blue paint covers this nicely with a complete look that also has plenty of aged-in style. Of course, the value price also leaves room in your budget to make updates and personal touches. Plus, this one has just the right hints of a modern cruiser with a touch of light blue pinstriping up front and crystal clear headlights.
Full-sized comfort was the name of the game in 1968. The highly stylized split-bench seat has comfy cloth inserts to give a distinct two-tone appearance. The back seat is just as nice and even as a two-door there's plenty of stretch-out room for rear-seat passengers. You may find a few areas for improvement, but this one remains complete, right down to the details, like the working courtesy lights. This big coupe loves to be a true cruiser, and that also means the right comforts for enjoying the drive. That's why you have an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input and remote, and the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. Plus, the upgraded gauge package and column-mounted tach make it easy to keep an eye on what's going on under the hood.
The 318 cubic-inch V8 is a great era-correct powerhouse. It has been upgraded with a newer Edelbrock AVS 2 four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, HEI ignition, and newer plug wires. There's even an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this one running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. The total package makes for a hardy and smooth runner that still has the legs to pull ahead of traffic when you want. It's backed by a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes to further emphasize the easy-going road manners of these full-size Dodges.
This is a classic car that gets attention because no one else at the car show brought one. But more than just being an endangered species, this large Polara is one of the most affordable and complete vintage Mopar hardtops you might ever see. Call today!!!
