The 3rd generation of the Dodge Polara was introduced in 1965 and moved the Polara name up in size to the Chrysler C-platform. The new Polara was bigger in almost every dimension but still used a unibody construction. Today’s example look great with the square-edged styling and a pseudo-fastback shape. Find this 1967 Dodge Polara offered for $6,000 in Capitola, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
The C platform was the basis for many Chrysler Corp. full sized sedans, including the New Yorker, 300, Plymouth Fury and Dodge Polara. The styling from Elwood Engel instantly identifies it as a Mopar product and still looks great today. The centerline style wheels with meaty white-letter tires give the car a sporty quality, but I’d be tempted to switch to some redline black NASCAR steelies.
The term “big as a house” is really apropos for a car parked on a lawn. Power in this house-boat comes from a 318 cubic inch (5.2 liter) V8 rated at 230 horsepower and 340 ft-lbs of torque. The 318 is a bit of a dog from the factory, particularly when put in a full sized vehicle, but you can coax some more power out of the old beast if you didn’t want to upsize to a 440.
