Dodge was originally part of the Chrylser/Mopar family, resulting in similar components and engineering as the sister Plymouth brand. Some models were so similar that only the name plates were changed: Duster/Demon and Challenger/Cuda. Yet dodge produced a car that stood alone. The 1963 Dodge Polara 500:426 Max Wedge As the king of the road, the Polara had 425HP, making the ultimate factory drag car and soon became the engine to be feared. Only 5 were built with the 426 Max Wedge engine, making it one of the most rare cars in Automotive History. This 1963 Dodge Polara 500 represented an excellent example of this true American classic automobile. This '63 Polara 500 has been professionally restored back to a near perfect, as factory condition. In addition to the noted condition, this '63 Polara 500 has a very desirable option package that includes 426 Max Wedge Stage III 426 engine, push button Torqueflite transmission and cast iron headers with exhaust cut-outs. This vehicle is typical of the type automobile that both collectors and enthusiasts sought after when looking to either add to, or expand onto their collection.
