We love all of our new Dodge vehicles for sale, but there is something about a classic Dodge Polara that just cannot be replicated anymore. We like to think of 1960–1973 as the golden era of full-size sedans since those were the only existing model years of the Dodge Polara. The design and performance of the Dodge Polara were partly steeped in history and partly a jump into the future of Dodge sedans. If you want to relive that golden era, we can help make it happen. We might be a premier new Dodge dealer in San Antonio, but we are also purveyors of the finest classic Dodge models out there. Read a bit more about this fine model below, and come to us when you’re ready for a blast from the past.
Perhaps one of the most popular Dodge Polara models, and therefore one of the most sought-after models, was the 1964 Dodge Polara. During that same year, the Dodge brand was also celebrating what they called their “50 Years of Dependability,” which meant that the entire Dodge lineup, and therefore the 1964 Dodge Polara, offered unique variants not seen on other model years. In 1964, the Dodge Polara had two models: the 500 and the 633, which sold for $2,722 at the time.
The reason for the Dodge Polara popularity during this model year was two-fold. For one, it had an incredibly unique roofline that would inspire both race cars and succeeding Dodge models, like the used Dodge Challenger for sale. Secondly, it had a different engine size than all other cars like it, offering a HEMI V8 that would dominate the racetrack by producing 425 horsepower. This was a far cry from the 1963 model year that only offered 305 horsepower — still an impressive pull.
The Dodge Polara came in many different body styles during its 13 years on the market. In 1963 and 1964, the Dodge Polara 500 was only available as a hardtop coupe or a convertible. Starting in 1965, the model was once again offered in all of its original variants: station wagon, hardtop coupe, sedan, and convertible. In 1969, the Dodge Polara broke a body class record. It clocked the highest top speed of a four-door sedan, and that record was broken in 1994 by the Chevy Caprice.
In 1970, the Dodge Polara 500 model was replaced and renamed the Dodge Polara Custom, and it was available as a four-door hardtop sedan and a hardtop coupe.
1971 saw the introduction of the Dodge Polara Brougham, which was available only as a hardtop coupe. This model enjoyed a pedestal that was above the Polara Custom, which was introduced the year prior. This model year also brought about the most powerful engine yet: the 360 V8 engine, which would soon be replaced by the 383 V8.
