From the ad: "1969 dodge Polara 500 Factory 440 magnum engine L code with 727 Auto both original numbers matching to the car. It’s a major project with extensive rust B3 light blue with white painted roof two tone car white bucket console interior. Has fender tag, broadcast sheet and clear title in my name. Hasn’t run in years it needs full resto and then some. car is complete and rolls fine. limited access so no multi car rigs bring your trailer or roll back. I also have another 2 dr 69 parts car with excellent floors trunk pan and frail rails to build this car. Hate to part it out but I’m never going to get to get to it.. the HP 440 is complete carb to pan never been out of car. Pretty much complete car now missing the dodge division wheel covers as I put them in another car a long time ago . $4500 is the firm price. Louisville Kentucky."

Would be nice to know what 'extensive rust' means exactly. It doesn't mean on this car in 2022 what it might've meant on a 318-powered 4dr 10 years ago.
If all it needs are floors, trunk and a little back-window repair (my estimation only) then it's not really major for a car with this pedigree.

Esp if the donor car has that metal in usable condition.

Price seems kinda high for the unknowns and the restoration cost it will need, yet it's a fair price for what it is.
A similar-condition 383-2 car with bench seat would surely be priced at $3500, right?
 
A good deal.

But the absence of A/C is holding it up…me thinks.

The engine/transmission is worth at least 1/2 the asking price.

Very rare car.
 
If not stuck the engine might be $3-4k itself

Out of curiosity, is that really a $3-$4k engine? And who is paying that?!? Only ask because if it is, I’m selling the dozen or so that I have laying around…
 
It's a complete HP engine with all it's accessories it appears. If Date matched everything is easily worth that.
 
It (being a 440 Magnum Polara) reminds me of the line by Walter Matthau to Dan Ackroyd in the Movie 'The Couch Trip'

"This bike will outrun any copcar built since '69" - I've often wondered if that was a reference to the 440 Polara...
 
That and it was ordered without a radio is the best part besides being an L-code!
Very basic, but would need to see the build sheet. There is a console, but I don't see it coded on the tag (in 1970, it would have been). Same for the A35 trailer-towing package -- I'd like to see those if this were my car BUT, given this car has NON-POWER drum brakes, I suspect this car was ordered as such on purpose.

Iirc Windsor built cars have very little coded. Being from the south Id imagine it was a 'shine runner.

I've noticed thru all of the 3 ads listed on this car, unless I missed it, there's been no mention of the engine's rotating condition.
To me that's a huge selling point, and adds/preserves $1000 of value.

Yeah, an un-seized engine doesn't mean it doesn't smoke like a crop duster or have a rod-knock, but it helps tremendously nonetheless.
 
Whoever gets it will rebuild for a b body, just can't be stuck :lol:
