So here are my details. My grandfather passed away recently and he was quite the car enthusiast. There was a “big red car” that I always loved in his shop. Now it is my turn to take care of it. It is a 1964 Dodge Polara. My great uncle was the original owner. Then it sat in my great grandfather’s garage. When he passed my grandfather trailered it from Arkansas out here. My grandfather was 94 so had not been driving for many years. It sat undriven for many many years. Luckily it is in great shape. Or at least I think it is. Just some minor fixes that we expected so far. I was wondering if there are any code wizards here that could help me decipher the fender tag or vin? Thank you

Welcome from Illinois!! You should hear from someone on the decoding soon. In the meantime, post some photos of the entire car for us. This is my brother's '64 Polara 500 . . .

Welcome to FBBO from NorCal Sierras

where in California are you located ?, it is a huge state
 
We live and work in Lemoore but play in Cayucos. We have the wheels off and have ordered new brakes. We are thinking about putting some Cragars on. We changed the oil and filter etc and it all looks good but we think some new spark plugs and coil are needed. She really wants to start. Hopefully next weekend. Here are some quick shots I took.

Cayocos huh? Drop me a line the next time you head west with the rest of the thundering herd. I'm in Osos.

Holy crap that's nice. Very lucky to end up with that.
I'm no tag expert on these older ones, but the 99 under paint, and the 9 above it makes me wonder if it's a special order paint car.

Oh no, no herd! My parents lived in Los Osos in the 60s. Before I was born. My grandpa had a place in Morro Bay since way before that but we sold the property and bought in Cayucos 20ish years ago. It is so quiet there, even on the weekends. Last month I went to Pismo for the first time in many years. I could not believe the changes and how busy it was. I think I will be good for another decade.
 
Nice.

Yup, some changes have happened over the years. My first time in SLO was 80-96. Last 5 of that was Osos with my then GF now wife. Gone back to San Diego county for 22 years and then escaped to come back here in 18. Being gone really helps us appreciate the area even more. Hit me up the next time you head west.

I suspected that is what the 99 meant but wasn’t sure. It was purchased in Arkansas and my family there love “razorback red.” Even the ones who moved out to California still gravitate towards the color. Thank you for the compliments. I feel very lucky to have her and I can’t wait to get her road ready again.
 
Thank you everyone for the welcome. We ordered a bunch of parts that will be here by Friday and hopefully we will get her running on Saturday.
