Description

1963 was the Zenith year of the Max Wedge, and while the true racers were ordering up the 330 2 door sedans, a few well-heeled guys opted for stealth street racing. How else do you explain that only 3 people in the whole country ordered a top of the line Polara 500 convertible and then checked the boxes for a 13.5 CR /425HP Max Wedge Engine Auto Trans with 4.56 rear gears? Sporting Black paint with a Red 500 stripe , Black and Red interior with a Black Top and all the 500 trim had to make an encounter with this Mopar in 1963 a Beauty and the Beast experience. Sold new in Virginia, the Polara 500 eventually made the journey to California, and then back east to Nebraska,before being discovered by Galen Govier in Ron Slobes Porject Car Collection. Galen authenticated the Dodge ,and then traced its history back to California. Having just minor rust, the convertible had never been caged, tubbed, or wrecked like so many of the 2 door sedans were. The convertible was treated to a full concours restoration in 2006. Already having the matching body numbers and fender tag, all of the correct date-coded mechanical parts were located to bring the Mopar back as a numbers matching car. This Dodge has the correct date coded HC engine block, intake heads, carbs, and distributor. The radiator, pulleys, wiring,brake lines,oil pan,exhaust manifolds, exhaust system, choke cable and brackets are all correct Max Wedge parts. This Polara 500 Convertible is one of the finest examples of a Max Wedge . The car was invited to the prestigious Meadow Brook Concours in 2007. Sure to attract attention anywhere its seen , with its great looks , the Mopar really draws a crowd when the engine fires up trough the uncapped factory exhaust cut-outs
