    1964 Dodge Polara "done"

    I finally have this car done to 97%. I say this since they are never really "done". It started life as a 318 car and now has a 1964 426 wedge (+0.060") Lots of performance parts. All good stuff. Looking to race it this spring. Hoping for 12 's. I'll post once the front end hits the timing lights.

    1964 Fury non AC heater control valve. HELP!!

    I rebuilt my own heater control. Took out all the old plastic pins and replaced them with copper tubing. They are press fit and I added a little JB weld insurance. Not all that hard. Be careful not to drill to deep as there is a "slider" under the holes that direct the vacuum. when you push the...

    1964 Dodge Polara - running and on the road...finally

    Well, my 64 Polara 426W (+0.060) is on the street. Not legally yet, but on it anyway. Its not perfect, but I'm not out to impress anyone but me. I built this car from a rough start and have all the photos to prove it. It is resurrected. Most everything works too. The engine runs great with no...

    The trans linkages is in and adjusted. I welded in a section 2 1/2" long to the downshift rod (at the bottom). This keeps the rod in the proper position for a streight push-back. A friend of mine added 2" to his 63 down shift rod on the top section and that never worked right. So I learned form...

    What did you do to your Mopar today?

    I hooked up my push button shift linkage on my 64 Polara. Now I got to go out and put the trans pan back on. Then I have to extend my downshift rod by ~2" and get that set correctly.

    All my glass went in OK. The rear was way easier than the front. Lots of soapy water. Love the Roadrunner. My pal in high school had one wand we did a lot of street racing.

    Hey, great news! I went to Boston to visit my brother for a week and when I came back home I got BOTH my doors adjusted to where they close properly. I guess I just need to back away for a while. Funny how that works so often. Now I will hook up the push button trans linkage in my Cope...

    Frustrating Problem. I have built this entire car from the bottom up. I have had some smooth sailing and a few bumps to overcome. However, aligning these doors is by far the most frustrating thing I have ever done. If anyone out there has any tips to give on aligning my doors on my 64 Polara...

    Your will be just fine. Take your time. There are lots of flaws in mine. No show car. Street car/drag racer.

    Single hole. 426W +0.060. Cope trans. 3.91 489 rear. To do list next week: Hook up push button linkage Weld a picce into my kick down rod since its too short with the modern manifold. Adjust that. Reset the distributor since one of the ears hits the head. Adjust the doors...the worst job for last.
