1964 Dodge Polara 330

OK, tired of storing dad's car he left us so it may be time for it to move along for someone else to baby sit it that will keep it in it's original condition as seen. It has been in the family since late 70's and stored inside most all of it's life accept when racing it so only rust is under the Rear window trim and some Small spots of Surface rust here and there. None in the trunk accept for around the battery just a little corrosion but solid. Unbelievably solid body but as you can see, paint is mostly flaking, thin, deteriorating and well aged some spots down to original primer but original accept for some old touch ups!!! It sit their for about 30 years and the max exhaust rusted off and ended up on the concrete so it couldn't be moved any more.
So after it was left to us to baby sit it, we finally gathered it ALL up and ALL it's motor pieces that were sitting around for it from it's last race and had the motor completely rebuilt after it's last badly needed refresh. We had it done by an older engine builder (Somers) that was around and use to rebuild the 426 max wedge motors from racing back then and was familiar with the parts they use in those motors as we wanted it done with quality first and foremost. While we were doing that we also had Mr. Mopar Howard Loren completely rebuild the front end including having him put heavier 11" brakes all around on it, clean up and paint all parts, and undercoat the wheel wells. We also had him rebuild the push button Automatic Trans as that was his Specialty was Mopar Transmissions not to mention his Quality Work!

Vehicle is in VERY good original solid condition and has not been molested. ALL the original motor part numbers are correct the engine builder said right down to the 330 crank, 886 rods, 730 block, 518 heads and 3705 carbs and so on we were told. Not sure what other stuff dad replaced among the racing years so their may be parts he changed too make it better or faster, there is a electronic ignition unit he put on right side inner fender with wiring but never hooked it up so it still has the original dual point distributor in it with no vacuum advance. There was a new Mopar cast iron electronic distributor in the trunk that must of been reserved for that task. Also a complete 1964 426 hemi intake, holley carbs, linkage, big air cleaner and miscellaneous parts for something he had planned that we sold to a old racing buddy of his to finance the cost and labor to get the 330 back on the road.

The engine builder also put a roller cam with self oiling rollers, bushed the lifter bores as he said they were worn out and bored it 40 over. Line bored and squared the block. He also lowered the compression and balanced the assembly. It does probably run better then it ever did in it's early life.
We told the engine builder to take out some horse power to make it more drivable for the street but it still uses a lot of fuel just going to the store and post office. When we put fuel in it to drive close to home every couple of months to keep things greased/oiled up we use 5 gal race fuel and the rest 93 Clear Premium goes in it and it still has too much horsepower. The power is just plain crazy. Vehicle doesn't leave till it's paid for in FULL and/or cashiers check clears. Deposit holds vehicle for 14 days and is not refundable.
