    I'm looking at the car on Friday. Needs some work. Rough guesses on how much to repair the quarters? A lot on the drivers side, mostly just the lower part behind the wheel pass side.

    Some body shop. I'm going to talk to one tomorrow, see what he says. AMD makes quarters for these cars, right? If only they did...

    There are no suitable replacement panels available anywhere from anyone. Sorry. It's not a B-body....

    You need another donor vehicle to make this worth the while. It's a typical Minnesota car with rusted quarters and who knows how much hidden rust elsewhere. Plenty of parts for my car, though. Just not at the asking price.

    Body man said 4 figures each side to fix. Quarters, outer wheel housing, trunk extensions. That money could go towards an NOS something or other. I'm jealous of you guys that live in states that don't use salt. Hard to find clean cars around my neck of the woods at reasonable prices. Maybe there's gold under the seats...

    I'll never understand why people are willing to spend thousands to fix some of these cars and not spend $500 to get a car 3 states away?

    Thanks for the info zapcan.

    It's a parts car in my opinion. Both lower quarters and front floor need replacing, interior needs almost everything replaced/repaired. Doors were hitting the fenders, leaves everywhere under the hood tucked up in the fenders.

    I got my CHP car locally, I'd gone anywhere in the country for the right car, this one came up first and the price was right.

    The other Polara was acquired in Montana and driven 1400 miles home, total "transport" cost $500 (Air, gas, room, food)
    My Truck was from Oregon and driven 700 miles home, total transport cost $500 (gas up and back, food)

    I may have spent $1500 just on rust repair, my total bill (labor only) for my CHP cars bodywork was $6000 and that was through final paint.


    I think my point is for $2650 you could probably find another 66 Polara in better shape elsewhere in the country but people have this thing against traveling.

    I agree with you. I never thought the price was reasonable, it is way too much for the shape of the car. I was hopeful that the interior was in good shape and the front fenders/grille was ok. Didn't turn out that way. There just isn't that many advertised cars up my way and I've known about this car for almost a decade and had too check it out. Cost me less than $15 to see if it was anywhere near worth it. Plenty of parts, but not for what the seller is asking.

    I'm all about cheap. But I did just pay $50 more for exhaust than my purchase price of the car.
    Headers and full exhaust, finally!

    I agree completely.... I had a great time with my dad picking up the last Polara, 2100 plus miles round trip. The whole bill for the trip was probably nine hundred, trailer rental, tolls, food and gas. The experience was irreplaceable.
