1964 - Dodge Polara on 2040-cars
Roseburg, Oregon, United States
This is a solid quality car that I had the pleasure of finding in 1988 in a wrecking yard in Orland.Ca. where it had been hauled to and saved because of its complete and straight condition.I purchased it and took it home,put fuel and a battery in it and drove it for a year or so needing a top,paint,and upholstery.I sold it to a local man you does cars who had one like it in college and he restored it into the beautiful beast it is today.He put about 300 miles on it locally in parades and local events and I bought it back about 10 months ago . The next exciting acquisition awaits so this car is on the block. Now for the details-the car was originally a 383 two barrel car-now has a fresh 1964 413 motor from an Imperial with 68 magnum exhausts and new complete exhaust system with Smitty mufflers. Car originally was gold with tan interior and a white top. Red is better-correct 1964 red by the way. Power top works perfectly. Car had small half- dollar rust hole in left rear footwell repaired with a small piece from a parts car. Otherwise rust free and straight. Car has almost all of the original air conditioning system installed but will need to be sorted and charged. Car runs great and stops fine. One of the most awesome things about this car is the quality of the hard to find trim and especially the chromed diecast pieces that are virtually like NOS. Has the original rims and spinner wheel covers,jack and spare in a tricked- out custom trunk.Lights work,turn signal return feature not working.Am radio works-extra gauge cluster with clock included.Gas gauge does not work-probably sending unit. Overall a great cruiser and thumbs-up collector.

We all hate the idea of the dreaded dealer markup when it comes to buying a highly anticipated new car. Take the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, for example. You might spend hours reading about its supercharged V8 and speccing the model just right in the configurator, but when it finally comes down to laying down the cash, the dealer adds thousands of dollars as a "market adjustment" on the muscle machine of your dreams. As it turns out, when the Hellcat starts hitting showrooms in the third quarter, Dodge is trying to make sure that's not the case.
Dealer orders for the much-hyped Hellcat recently started, but Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis has put some special caveats in place to ensure that the Hellcat makes it to the road quickly. The initial allocation is based on the number of Dodge products that a showroom has sold in the last 180 days, and a second allotment in December is based on the last 90 days of sales and 30-day turnover. "You sell a lot of Darts for me, Journeys for me, Durangos for me, I'm going to give you the rights to this one, too, because this is a halo of the brand," said Kuniskis to Automotive News.
Furthermore, how quickly the Hellcat sells is also going to decide whether showrooms get more of them. "If you want to market-adjust the car, that's your right. But if your days-on-lot goes above what the other guys that are selling them at MSRP is, they will end up earning the allocation because their days-on-lot will be lower," he said to Automotive News. Obviously, this doesn't prevent dealers from marking up the Challenger SRT, but the strategy certainly discourages it.
Including all-wheel-drive models, there are ten versions of the 2015 Dodge Charger. The tenth variant - better described as the ten-tenths variant and the topmost model - is this Charger SRT Hellcat.
Superficially, you already know what it is: take the massively powerful Hellcat engine that's Frankensteined into the Dodge Challenger and stitch it into the recently facelifted Charger sedan.
Oh, but that would be superficial knowledge indeed. Russ Ruedisueli, vehicle line executive and head engineer for SRT, claims the Charger Hellcat is, "The industry's most irreverent four-door supercar." We looked up the word "irreverent" in the Oxford dictionaries, and it turns out the word doesn't mean "707 horsepower," nor "650 pound-feet of torque" nor "3.7-second 0-60 time, and seats five adults." It does mean, "Showing a lack of respect for people or things that are generally taken seriously."
To be honest, we're surprised something like this didn't pop up sooner. Chrysler is riffing on gift registries for couples getting married or expecting babies and cross-pollinating it with a social media funding website like Kickstarter to help customers buy its 2013 Dodge Dart. The Dodge Dart Registry allows people to build and customize a new Dart exactly how they want it, then let other people purchase some or all of the components as gifts.
The registry lets you add features like dark headlights, dual exhaust, various wheels and even interior options without choosing a specific trim level. This sounds a lot like the system Scion uses to let its customers configure cars, and this could be a great idea for Dodge. Of course, this system has the added benefit of being a social media affair for you to share with your friends... you know, so they can help pay for some of the parts, too.
The best thing about the registry is that you can configure your dream Dart from the comfort of your home computer, which strikes us as much better than walking around Bed, Bath and Beyond for the better part of an afternoon with an electronic scanner. The one thing that Dodge doesn't offer? "Thank You" cards. Those are on you.
