66 Polara 500

  • I had no idea what the "500" package was but I learned with this car. I learned the "500" package included bucket seats and console and had a 383 as the standard engine.
    When I first saw this car I thought all polaras were the same with buckets and console and then I later found that only the "500" package cars do. They also made them with 318s and bench seats.

    I originally went to look at this car when I heard it was for sale. I was looking for a mid 60s 383 engine and I was expecting to find some kind of C-body, presumably rusty and 4 door and basically a good donor car. What I found is this car, not rusty, mega cool and it would be criminal to call it a donor car for any reason.

    So here I am, chasing parts for it and intending to love it like a family member.
