68 Polara Project

  • 20180423_185808.jpg 20170731_182454_optimized.jpg My 68 polara project is finally getting started it will be a modified custom interior using items from various Dodges
    And some hand built custom items. The 318 engine is back from the shop and sitting under the hood the transmission has been rebuilt buy one of the best builders on the west coast mr. Keith Betts. The engine was done by mr. Gene Hurst Long Beach California. This is my first ever Mopar project I must say it is an exciting undertaking.

    Update..Mechanically done..
    Body, Paint, Interior, seals,...etc to go
    You guys know all the cheapest parts..Lol
    Took 22 months of saving,searching,sourcing,scrounging to get everything needed done. Many thanks to members who helped along the way

    very nice. wondering what disc conversion you used and if those are the 17" mopar ralleys?
    1. BigBen
      thank you for your comment. Yes those are 17in Mopar rallies took forever to get the center caps. The disc brake conversion I used scarebird brackets and sourced all the other parts from auto parts stores from a list of required pieces scarebird provide you with their bracket, I did the entire conversion All four wheels and all parts necessary for just over $700

      I thought I recognized those Ram calipers, I did the same conversion. And those wheels were in my top 3. Modern version of a classic.
