Sleeper ’64 Polara!
This lesser known muscle car started as a stock Dodge Polara 500 with a 383. Owner Tony Ashburn bought it for only sixty five bucks, but he sold the engine for fifty, for a net sale price of $15! It may still look stock, but this is a working man’s race car. Under the super stock hood scoop he dropped in a 440 stroked to 469, backed up by an automatic. This tunnel-ram Mopar makes 696hp! The whole car is period correct, just the way they were raced in the ‘60’s. It runs the quarter in a respectable ten point eight four at a 126mph. Not bad for a $15 purchase at the start! See it for yourself on The PowerBlock January 2nd & 3rd. Plus Ian and Chris will drop in to preview the all new season of Xtreme 4×4! Happy New Year from all of us at The PowerBlock!
