The Dodge came with a 361, but it has a 383 in the engine compartment now.

I remember working on the 500 as a teenager. After dad bought the Dodge we took all the trim off the car, stripped the paint, and primed it in the garage of a house he had under construction. The Mopar was painted at a local body shop. We put all the trim back on, having some of it rechromed.

This Polara 500 has been kept out of sight in dad’s garage for quite some time. The Dodge is an early inheritance because my dad is still with us. I am glad to get the convertible out and enjoy driving the Mopar!
