Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is proud to present this
1968 Dodge Polara Convertible. The Dodge Polara is an automobile
introduced in the United States for the 1960 model year as Dodge's
top-of-the-line full-size car available as a sedan, hardtop coupe,
hardtop sedan, and convertible. The sedan was approximately $300
more than the 330 Series and approximately $150 more than the 440
Series. It added back-up lights, additional exterior moldings, a
power top on the convertible, and custom interior and upholstery
trim. In its various forms, the Polara name was used by Dodge until
1973, when its position in Dodge's line-up was replaced by the
Monaco. The name Polara is a reference to the Polaris star, in a
marketing attempt to appeal to the excitement surrounding the Space
Race during the early 1960s. This classic Dodge not only looks
great but also packs a punch with an "L-Code" (Hi Performance) 440
CID engine with a 727 torque flight automatic transmission. Now the
Chrysler Corp. used to like to add terms to their engine size such
as 440 Magnum, or Commando or even Super Commando. As you walk
around the vehicle, you will notice nice details like the bold
brightwork of the front end and down the side, the dual exhaust,
and the whitewall Cooper Cobra Radial tires. This car exudes a real
presence! Take a seat inside and you are greeted by a luxurious
interior via the deep black vinyl bench seats in the front and back
that sit nicely with matching door panels, carpet and dash. A
two-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of a 120-mph speedometer and
factory auxiliary gauges that include a fuel gauge, water
temperature, battery charge and oil pressure. The five-digit
odometer shows 75k miles, although the true mileage is unknown.
These are gaining ground in today's collector car market & the pure
joy of driving top-down in a 60's classic will never get tiring!
